On midnight Saturday morning, the inaugural Norwegian flight from NYC to Paris took place, and it was dirt-cheap. The best part is, the service is anything but.
Norwegian, recognized as the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline three consecutive years, launched flights from three United States airports to Paris’ Charles De Gaulle Airport July 29. This includes four weekly flights from New York’s JFK International Airport, two weekly flights from Los Angeles International Airport and one weekly flight from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Before this, the airline only operated flights from Paris Orly International Airport to five Scandinavian destinations.
Norwegian only launched their U.S. operations three years ago, and since then has become a beloved supplier of affordable yet still appealing air travel for American explorers. The airline now has more nonstop routes from the U.S. to Europe than any other European airline, with 38 routes from the U.S.
OK, now to the good stuff: Flights from the U.S. to Paris are available for purchase with introductory fares as low as $175 one-way, including taxes. Of course that doesn’t mean you can fly any day you want for $175; for the lowest available fares to any Norwegian destination, use their nifty Low Fare Calendar.
All Paris flights will be operated on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the world’s most modern and eco-friendly fleets.
