Norwegian Airlines’ flights from UK to New York
For people in the UK who love New York, this is some awesomely insane, jump around in your PJ’s news, Norwegian Airlines have recently announced that they have plans to offer one way flights in the summer for wait for it…..£56!!!
This was announced by their Chief Executive who said they plan to offer these from Edinburgh, Scotland and Shannon in Ireland starting this summer. They plan to do this by using more efficient planes to cut down on the cost of fuel and fly to secondary airport’s.
A spokesman said: “We are working on plans for new transatlantic routes from Edinburgh and Ireland which we expect to launch in 2017, and a key part of our plans are to make sure they are truly affordable, allowing as many people as possible to fly.
“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.”
Return flights to New York for less than £130, where do I sign up!
Only arriving in the summer and unfortunately, for people who don’t live close enough to Edinburgh or Shannon, they will have to commute to those cities before flying out to the big apple. Then again who knows, this insane new pricing may have a knock on effect to help drive down the costs for other routes out of the UK and US, which can only be good news for travelers.
What do you guys in the UK think? Will you be willing to travel up to Edinburgh or Shannon to take advantage of these Norwegian Airlines’ flights from UK to New York. As a regular traveler I for one will seriously consider exploring this option, let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
