Looking for a trip across the pond but not wanting to break the bank? You no longer have to with new low-cost routes between NYC and London on Norse Atlantic Airways.
Norse Atlantic Airways officially launched last year, priding themselves in affordable transatlantic travel, with their first flights between London Gatwick and New York JFK Airport starting at £255 ($249) for a return ticket.
Recent regulation changes from the US Department of Transport has cleared the UK branch of Norwegian Airlines for direct trips between the US and UK, rather than having to route all flights through Norway—and at a rather agreeable price tag.
Current one-way flights are available between NYC to London starting as low as $120 for select dates. Travelers are also able to explore cities from NYC like Berlin and Oslo for prices just around $200.
Inflight passengers can enjoy typical international amenities such as on-demand movies, comfortable seating, along with food and drink. The airline offers both economy and premium tickets. The economy cabin has a variety of options from economy light to economy plus. Premium tickets include wider seats and 35% more leg room, which can definitely be worth the higher cost for longer flights.
Routes between the UK and major U.S. cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and more are expected to be added by March 2023.
