European low-cost carrier Norwegian are planning to offer Trans-Atlantic Flights from just €69 one-way. The flights between New York and the UK and Ireland are expected to begin in April 2017.
Norwegian said it could offer the cheap fares by using more fuel-efficient aircraft, and by flying to New York’s secondary airports, where fees are lower. The flights in question are likely to be from Edinburgh in Scotland and both Shannon and Cork in Ireland.
The exact routes and timetable remain to be finalised as the airline is reviewing possible airports in New York.
“A number of airports are being looked at while we finalise our plans but smaller airports in the US present us with an opportunity to offer some ground-breaking fares to passengers in the UK, Ireland and the US.”
Norwegian currently offer transatlantic flights from €130 each way and have been fighting a battle to get flights between the US and Cork approved by authorities in the US.
