This year, you will have no excuse not to travel as $69 flights to Europe are becoming available.
By 2018, travelers can fly one-way between Edinburgh and New York for less than a weekend’s worth of meals at the airport. Norwegian Air will receive six new Boeing 737Max aircrafts this April, and the cheap flight routes will be offered shortly after their arrival. Norwegian Air CEO Bjorn Kos explains that the decrease in price is a direct result of the 737Max aircrafts’ modern engines allowing them to be much more fuel efficient.
Kos goes on to explain that the new routes will use secondary airports in New York City (this
excludes JFK) to cut costs further for travelers. The specific airports Norwegian intends to use have not yet been determined; however, they plan to increase number of flights to as many as 21 each week beginning with routes to Scotland, Ireland, Norway and England.
