This is another big announcement at Green. It comes on the heels of last week's announcement of Frontier flying from Green to Orlando and Denver. Launch fares of $79 to both Guadeloupe and Martinique are now available for sale at Norwegian.com/us. To accommodate the growth from T. F. Green Airport, Norwegian will open its fourth American crew base in Providence this summer. “We are excited to increase our presence in Rhode Island. With eight routes to such exciting and vastly different destinations as the French Caribbean, Scotland, Ireland, Norway and Northern Ireland, we can truly offer the millions of people in and around Providence a variety of travel options based on their interests,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer. “This is Norwegian’s third announcement for new service at T. F Green Airport in just a few months. Norwegian is now the largest international airline at PVD offering eight nonstop destinations, which mirrors the nonstop destinations offered by our largest domestic carrier. We truly appreciate this commitment and ongoing partnership with Norwegian, and look forward to growing the international market out of Providence together,” said Iftikhar Ahmad, President and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC). House Majority Leader Joseph Shekarchi, said, “This further commitment by Norwegian is great news for T. F. Green Airport, the City of Warwick and our state. The airport is a true engine for economic development, and I’m delighted that Norwegian continues to grow its crew base and expand into new markets from T. F. Green.” “Last Wednesday we were here for the announcement of another new airline that will be flying from PVD”, said Mayor Scott Avedisian. “A week later we are back to celebrate two more exciting additions provided by Norwegian Airlines. The new service to the French Caribbean, providing lower fares to the islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe, will undoubtedly help T. F. Green build momentum and position itself as a top competitor within the aviation industry. Again, these accomplishments are a direct reflection of the hardworking and dedicated team at the Rhode Island Airport Corporation.” “We are thrilled with Norwegian’s commitment to our airport and state. The airline recognizes the willingness of our community to partner and support their service. Our customers will have even more convenient nonstop options to Europe and the Caribbean. With the success of these markets, we expect more announcements to follow”, said Jonathan Savage, Chair of the RIAC Board of Directors. “The new connection from Providence, with its great proximity to both Boston and Connecticut, is exciting as it will allow more American travelers much smoother and more affordable access to the Guadeloupe Islands. In the last two years, our French Caribbean archipelago has become the top emerging market for Americans thanks to major media recognition, new flights and now almost daily flights out of New York City, as well as flights from Fort Lauderdale,” said Sandra Venite, USA Director, Guadeloupe Islands Tourist Board. “With an almost 200% increase in U.S. visitors last year, Martinique is thrilled to welcome even more American travelers from the New England area as Norwegian is opening its nonstop route from Providence to our island. Our award-winning island will roll out blue waters, green trails, a red carpet and a warm welcome to all. A vacation in Martinique is a superb experience; there is a ‘je ne sais quoi’ to be remembered in its vibrant culture, délicieuse cuisine, magnificent gardens and, most importantly, in the warmth of its people. Thanks to Norwegian, Martinique is now more affordable and accessible than ever,” said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas of the Martinique Promotion Bureau. Now, Norwegian offers 52 transatlantic flights from 13 U.S. airports to Denmark, France, Ireland, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, as well six routes to the French Caribbean, totaling 58 routes out of the United States. Upcoming 2017 launches from the Green Airport include: Providence to Edinburgh (June 16), Providence to Belfast (July 1); Providence to Bergen (July 1); Providence to Dublin (July 2); Providence to Cork (July 3); Providence to Shannon (July 3); Providence to Guadeloupe (October 29); Providence to Martinique (October 30). Passengers on all of Norwegian’s routes are eligible to join Norwegian Reward, the airline’s frequent flyer program and can earn CashPoints every time they fly, stay at a hotel or drive a rental car. http://www.golocalprov.com/business/norwegian-air-makes-announcement-of-additional-international-flights-from-g
