Low-cost airline Norwegian has today launched £179 flights to Boston from Gatwick.
The flights from May 13 next year are on sale now at Norwegian Airlines which is the only airline to offer UK passengers low-cost long haul flights to America and already serves New York, LA, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.
Boston will become the fifth US destination. The flights use 787 Dreamliner aircraft and will depart on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays.
Norwegian CEO Bjørn Kjos said: “Today we have launched the UK’s cheapest flight to Boston, helping to make this popular New England city affordable at long last.
“Norwegian offers the UK’s only low-cost, long haul travel to the USA and Boston will become our fifth new destination since introducing our pioneering flights last year. We expect Boston to be a popular addition offering an exciting new city break, and providing affordable access to the New England region for both business and leisure travellers.
“The cost of flying to America has been too high for too long, and the success of our transatlantic flights show there is huge demand for quality, affordable long haul travel. We are pleased to add Boston to our network from London Gatwick as we continue our exciting plans for UK growth.”
The flights will depart Gatwick at 5.45pm, arriving in Boston at 8pm.
