Norwegian (STO:NASO) Launches the "Cheapest Ever" Transatlantic Flight

25 February 2017

Norwegian Air is the second airline to offer regular global flights out of Bradley.

Tickets for this service are on sale now at, with fares beginning at $65, including taxes. It will also offer flights between Edinburgh and T.F. Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island as well as Connecticut's Bradley International Airport.

"Tourism Ireland looks forward to working and partnering with Norwegian and Belfast, Dublin, Shannon and Cork airports through various initiatives to drive demand for the new flights", said Alison Metcalfe, Executive Vice President, USA & Canada, Tourism Ireland.

"From Stewart, New York's Hudson Valley airport, Norwegian will be the first carrier to provide European service with four routes to Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh and Shannon". According to Express UK, from London's Gatwick Airport, British travelers could head directly to Rhodes without having to go with interconnecting flights in the country's other Islands. However, this time, US-bound travellers will have the choice of two American airports.

The services are expected to start from July 1.

There's been a wide-ranging welcome for the announcement of two new low cost services from Shannon to the U.S. this summer.

Norwegian boss Bjorn Kjos said the company is able to run flights so cheap because it has invested heavily in new aircraft that is cheaper to run and more fuel efficient. When news got out that Norwegian would soon offer $69 flights, WOW Air beat them to the punch with bookable $70 flights. Weekly parking is available at Green for $65 ($50 with a coupon available on the airport's website). The cost of transatlantic travel has been too high for too long so by connecting Scotland with smaller United States airports, we can offer some truly affordable fares, allowing as many people as possible to fly.

The flights will be operated by brand-new, single-aisle Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. From Stewart, it will fly to Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh and Shannon.

The Europe based airline is growing its flight network to include the USA beginning mid-June after it received a long-awaited approval from the US this past December for Norwegian Air International an Irish subsidiary to operate transatlantic routes.

Norwegian's fares are simply for a seat on a flight and a cabin bag.

"Aer Lingus is a value carrier and competing robustly is part of our DNA".

There will be thousands of tickets offered at the introductory rate of £69, tickets on the next pricing tier will begin at £79.50. Low base fares are heavily advertised, drawing customers in, but then they are charged a ton for add-on items.
