Beginning in June, Norwegian Air International will launch summer and winter flights to Edinburgh, Scotland, out of Bradley International Airport, the airline announced Thursday.

This will be the second airline that has added an international flight at Bradley in less than a year, following the addition of Aer Lingus flights to Ireland last fall.

Norwegian flights from Windsor Locks will operate three times a week beginning June 17, and twice weekly during the winter season, at an introductory one-way cost of $65, including taxes, the airline said.

"With the addition of these flights, travelers flying internationally for business or pleasure have even more convenient travel options in the Greater Hartford region," Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said. "Bradley International Airport is recognized by many as being faster and less stressful than other nearby airports – and with the addition of new flights to Europe, as well as new destinations around the country, that reputation only improves."

Malloy and Norwegian Air officials are scheduled to hold a 1:45 p.m. news conference today at Bradly Airport in Windsor Locks to discuses the flight.

The new Connecticut trans-Atlantic flight is one of 10 new routes to northern Ireland and Scotland from Stewart International Airport north of New York City, T.F. Green Airport in Providence, R.I., and Bradley, the airline said.
