Today Norwegian, the third-largest low-cost carrier in Europe, launched $65 transatlantic fares (including taxes), which might be the cheapest tickets across the pond ever.
The airline will fly 10 new routes to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland this summer from Stewart International Airport (70 miles north of New York City); T.F. Green Airport in Providence, RI; and Bradley International Airport in Hartford, CT.
Norwegian will be the first carrier to provide European service from Stewart, with four routes to Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh and Shannon. Norwegian’s new routes out of Providence, meanwhile—to Belfast, Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, and Shannon—are the first-ever year-round European routes for Rhode Island’s largest airport. Norwegian will also operate one route from Hartford’s Bradley, New England’s second-largest airport, to Edinburgh. The flights will be operated by Boeing 737-MAX, which means single aisle with 3×3 configuration.
You can purchase tickets at Norwegian.com/us, but keep in mind that Norwegian charges extra for seat reservations, meals, drinks, and checked luggage. And if you want one of the $65 flights, you better act now because they are going quick (and are only available on certain travel dates). Below is a screenshot of a $65 fare from NY to Belfast (already gone).
