Airline says 737 woes doomed service

Norwegian Air announced it would end its flights as of Sept. 15 from Stewart International to Dublin — the last service it offered from the New Windsor airport — because of financial losses attributed to the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max jetliner following two crashes.

The airline began flying out of Stewart in July 2017.

The discount airline also canceled four weekly transcontinental flights out of Providence and three flights from Hamilton, Ontario. Last year the airline suspended flights from Stewart to Edinburgh and Belfast, and earlier this year dropped flights to other locations in Ireland. Construction of a customs facility will continue at the airport, according to the Orange County executive.
