Norwegian to open new pilot base in Dublin, recruit new pilots to support international growth
Earlier this summer, Norwegian launched 24 weekly transatlantic flights from Cork, Shannon, Dublin and Belfast serving the New York, Boston and New England areas on the U.S. East Coast, with the routes served by brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. To help support the transatlantic operations and future growth in Ireland, Norwegian will open a new base at Dublin Airport later this year. The base will initially include approximately 40 pilots but Norwegian is also exploring options for further pilot and cabin crew positions at the base next summer. Recruitment is now underway for pilots who hold a Boeing 737 operational certificate to be located at the new Dublin base to serve flights from Dublin, Cork, Shannon and Belfast.
