Norwegian boasts largest non-North American airline serving metro area

Kjos visited Stewart in September 2017

NEW YORK – European low-cost carrier Norwegian was the largest non-North American airline to serve the New York and New Jersey area in 2018, according to Port Authority of New York and New Jersey data.

Over two million passengers were carried through John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty and New York Stewart International.

The airline currently offers 13 European nonstop destinations from the three airports.

“Norwegian has continued its growth in passenger numbers in a fiercely competitive and critical market across the Atlantic to the New York City area,” said Bjorn Kjos, the airline’s CEO. “We see this as a positive indicator that passengers on both sides of the Atlantic continue to embrace and support our award-winning service and our disruptive model on transatlantic routes.”

Norwegian began Stewart service in the summer of 2017.

Overall, Norwegian offers over 55 nonstop routes from Europe to 17 airports in the United States.
