“Soaring Demand” For DY’s New YHM-DUB Flights

Open Jaw

Norwegian Air has revealed “a soaring demand” for its new non-stop flights between Hamilton International Airport to Dublin since the route debuted on 31MAR. The airline has flown more than 5,000 passengers with an average load factor of 90% in APR 2019, the first month of operation.

Despite the grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which was originally scheduled to operate the route and the adjusted frequency of service as a result, Norwegian is “demonstrating strong growth,” according to a statement from the company.

“We’re seeing great demand for our newest route, both with Canadians travelling to Ireland and beyond with us, and Europeans visiting top tourist destinations of Ontario that are still relatively new and undiscovered by them,” said Matthew Wood, senior vice president of long-haul commercial for Norwegian Air.

The YHM route currently operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Starting JUL, it will operate three times weekly on the same days excluding Sunday utilizing a Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
