Low-cost airline Norwegian is launching new flights to America from just £69.
There are 10 new routes – 38 weekly transatlantic flights from Edinburgh, Belfast, Cork, Shannon and Dublin to greater New York, Boston and New England areas.
The flights will serve three destinations on the US east coast, with a focus on smaller US airports – offering good access into the New York, Boston and New England areas – which results in lower fares.
Passengers will fly on new Boeing 737 MAX planes which have a longer range and greater seat capacity than existing single-aisle aircraft. Passengers will be able to buy hot and cold food on board.
