Looking to get whisked away this summer, but don’t want to pay a load for your flights? Well, if you’re a Brit looking to hit up the USA, or vice versa, there are soon going to be a whole host of cheaper options. An Icelandic airline is launching new £200 flights from London to Boston and Orlando. And now, Norse Atlantic Airways are selling return flights from London to New York for just £255.
The budget airline will start flying the route on August 12, allowing travellers to travel between JFK and Gatwick without spending a fortune. Apparently, more US destinations are going to be announced soon, too.
Previously, Norwegian Air Shuttle had attempted to run the same routes for a low price – but axed its operations in January 2021 after heavy losses. Norse Atlantic, however, is much more optimistic, citing the uptick in transatlantic travel as borders reopen. And Gatwick airport, which obviously struggled during the pandemic, is also likely to be pleased there’s a new route opening.
So what are you waiting for? Get booking that US trip via the official Norse Atlantic Airways website.
Did you see Qantas is planning to launch direct London-Sydney flights?
