Great news for the Irish living in Toronto as they’ll soon have a super cheap Norwegian Airline service to Dublin at their disposal.
From March 31, 2019, the lucky Irish living in Canada and Canadians alike will be able to avail of the fantastic cheap fares to and from Ireland offered by budget transatlantic airline Norwegian Air. The US has taken advantage of the low-cost airline for some time now but this new service, available to purchase for next year now, is the first of Norwegian’s direct transatlantic flights between Canada and Europe.
With prices starting from $219 (US) one-way, the Dublin to Toronto Hamilton service will run daily. As with other Norwegian destinations, the Hamilton International Airport is located a little bit away from the city itself but is nothing more than a further 40-minute journey. Buffalo in New York and Niagara Falls are also just an hour away.
