"Due to the continued grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX by the European aviation authorities, our flights to and from Cork and Shannon will be re-routed via Dublin for the remainder of the summer season," the airline said in a statement. "Cork is a seasonal route, while the reduced availability of aircraft has led to the removal of Shannon services this winter," it added. The decision is a result of the grounding of hundreds of Boeing 737 MAX jets worldwide, following two fatal recent crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. Norwegian has now grounded all 18 of its Max planes, impacting the number of flights it has been able to operate across its network. “Customers travelling to and from Cork and Shannon are being re-accommodated on to different aircraft types between Dublin, New York and Providence to ensure travel plans can continue with minimal disruption," it advises. Affected customers can rebook or receive a free refund, and may also claim expenses for rail or bus travel to … [Read more...] about Norwegian will not resume flights from Cork or Shannon this year
ECO-WARRIORS wept as they tried to shut down Heathrow Airport at the start of the Easter holidays today, but their protest failed to disrupt a single flight. Climate-change activists from Extinction Rebellion (XR) sobbed as they were faced by police at Britain’s busiest airport on Good Friday morning. The group had plotted to close Heathrow with up to 800,000 passengers due to travel over the Bank Holiday weekend. But the demonstration fizzled out without any flights cancelled, as an Extinction Rebellion organiser insisted the group had caused "emotional disruption". This morning, up to 20 protesters - many of them under the age of 17 - stood by the tunnel that leads to Terminals 2 and 3, but roads nearby remained open. Around 15 children held a huge banner which read "Are we the last generation?" as they gathered at a roundabout near Heathrow terminals two and three. One boy told Sky News: “I don't want to be the last generation. “I've told you I'm here out of love … [Read more...] about Heathrow protest – Extinction Rebellion protesters sob as they fail to delay a single flight despite plotting to ‘shutdown’ airport
