  4. Norwegian to temporarily reroute Cork and Shannon passengers through Dublin Airport
    The move is a temporary measure in response to the recent suspension of Boeing 737 MAX operations.

    Norwegian has announced plans to reroute customers who had booked flights from Cork and Shannon airports through Dublin Airport for a 10-day period at the beginning of next month.
