PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - The Pease Development Authority in New Hampshire is negotiating with Norwegian Air Shuttle to bring the international carrier to the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease.

PDA Executive Director David Mullen tells the Portsmouth Herald (https://bit.ly/2h5FMTP ) authority officials met with four representatives from Norwegian Air Shuttle on Nov. 23. He says if Portsmouth is selected by the airline to be one of its two U.S. bases - Stewart International Airport in upstate New York is expected to be the other - it plans to fly about 18 flights a week overseas out of the airport. He said the flights would include several in Ireland and England, and one in Norway and Scotland.

Mullen says the airline plans to offer introductory one-way fares as low as $69 overseas.
