Tourism Ireland warmly welcomes today’s announcement by Norwegian of new transatlantic services to Belfast, from New York (Stewart International Airport) and Providence (Rhode Island). These flights will commence on 1stJuly and will certainly help boost tourism business from the all-important US market, offering more choice to prospective American visitors living in the North East.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement is excellent news for tourism to Northern Ireland for 2017. We look forward to working closely with Norwegian to maximise the promotion of these new routes from New York and Providence. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism. Tourism Ireland is committed to working with Norwegian, as well as with Belfast International, through co-operative marketing, to drive demand for these new flights.”

 Niall Gibbons continued: “In 2016, we welcomed a record 1.6 million North American visitors to the island of Ireland. Looking to the year ahead, we are confident of further growth; as well as more airline seats than ever before from the US, other factors working in our favour include a strong dollar, as well as the strength of the vacation experience right around the island of Ireland.”
