  2. 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.

    The move is in response to the decision of the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) earlier this month to ban all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from Irish airspace, meaning that these planes cannot fly to or from Ireland, nor can they fly over Ireland en route to somewhere else.
