This will be bringing direct trans-Atlantic flights to a new range of East Coast cities not typically served by such links.

Norwegian Air Shuttle will initially connect Edinburgh, Scotland to Stewart International Airport in New York, Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island, and Bradley International Airport near Hartford, Conn from June 15.

The airline is promising fares as low as $65. The carrier will base two of its new Boeing Co. 737 Max narrowbody each at Stewart and Green airports to help fly the trans-Atlantic hops. Two more Max planes will initially be based at Edinburgh.
