Norwegian (STO:NASO) Launches the "Cheapest Ever" Transatlantic Flight

Alert your travel buddies and pack your bags, because Norwegian Air has just announced that starting in June, it will launch flights from the US Northeast to Europe for as low as $65.

The deal was announced Thursday on Norwegian.com, where you can snag flights to travel to destinations that include Dublin and Edinburgh by this summer.

Norwegian said it would fly from smaller USA airports with lower fees to keep costs low, and use narrow-body Boeing 737-MAX Aircraft due to be delivered later this year.

"The Norwegian Air International route will be Bradley Airport's second nonstop transatlantic route", CAA Executive Director Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., said.

"With the addition of these flights, travelers flying internationally for business or pleasure have even more convenient travel options in the Greater Hartford region", Malloy said in a statement.

The new transatlantic routes will be operated on brand new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, it said.

Since launching its first transatlantic routes in 2014, Norwegian set a new bar in terms of low fares. During the last two months of the year, the frequency of flights drops, as do the prices, with numerous $99 one-way flights.

Mr Kjos added that avoiding primary airports like London Heathrow and New York's JFK means "we don't pay as much and can charge cheaper fares".

This is the first time in Cork Airport's history that it will offer flights to the United States. While a low-priced airline model does come with plenty of concerns, Norwegian's implementation of it has the potential to disrupt the airline industry as a whole.

Late last year, it launched twice-weekly flights to Las Vegas for less than £400 return, and this year the airline is increasing its number of flights from London to the U.S. by 55 per cent.

Service to Dublin from Stewart International Airport begins on July 1 with daily flights during the summer and thrice weekly during the winter seasons; and from Providence, flights will operate five weekly flights starting July 2 during the summer and thrice weekly during winter. Norwegian was named the Most Fuel-Efficient Airline on Transatlantic Routes by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT).

This time it's Norwegian Air, a 24-year-old carrier serving 150 destinations around the world. Those who jumped on the offer will be able to fly round trip from the U.S.to Scotland for $145.
