$15 flights to Europe? Ryanair is coming to the U.S.

Do these surprise spring flurries make you want to get out of town? Then you’re in luck: Irish-based discount airline Ryanair announced this week that it plans to add trans-Atlantic flights.

Unfortunately, it will take about four years for the low-cost trips between Europe and NYC to become available, but once they do, the company says one-way fares could cost as little as £10 (about $15). Seats at those prices will be limited, of course, with most one-way flights costing £99 and up—though that still sounds pretty damn good. Ryanair currently shuttles passengers between 189 European destinations on the cheap, (their website is currently advertising one-way flights from London to Oslo for $16). Officials have said they eventually plan to fly to between 12 and 14 U.S. cities (which will, of course, include NYC). 

To Paris and back for $30? We’ll believe it when we see it, but it’s a really lovely dream.
