Norwegian Air launches £69 flights to the US

Published on : Saturday, February 25, 2017

NorwegianThe budget airline Norwegian Air has launched bargain flights from the UK to New York costing just £69. The airline has unveiled direct flights from Edinburgh and Belfast to New York and Boston.

 

Flights from the USA to the UK are even cheaper with journeys starting at just £52 for the first 10,000 seats.

 

The new routes, announced yesterday, will give fliers in Belfast the chance to travel non-stop to the US for the first time since United scrapped its daily service in January, while providing those in Scotland with a potentially cheaper transatlantic option than is currently available with the likes of British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines.

 

The cheaper fares are offered thanks to the type of plane used, a Boeing 737MAX aircraft which burns less fuel than other long-haul aeroplanes, and the smaller airports where the planes land. These smaller airports carry significantly lower landing charges which help the airline keep costs down.

 

While the flights are at rock bottom prices, passenger will have to pay extra to buy food on board and to put luggage in the hold.

 

Virgin Atlantic and Delta Air Lines will launch in summer, operating up to five times a week. Norwegian is aiming to save money, and keep fares down, by using Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, located around 70 miles north of New York City.
