In an effort to promote their new flight paths from London’s Gatwick Airport to New York, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale, Norwegian airlines has announced introductory ticket prices starting from a mere US$240 one-way to New York. The airline’s tickets are now on sale for new North American routes beginning in July 2014 serviced by Boeing 787 Dreamliners. While flying across the Atlantic in budget airline accommodations doesn’t sound like the most appealing traveler experience, Norwegian offers in-flight entertainment systems for free, but charges about US$50 for a package including meals, luggage, and preferred seating. Even with the charge, the airline is still far below the fares offered by its competitors, charging US$450 for a one-way ticket from New York to London this month. Norwegian plans to fly three times weekly from New York’s John F. Kennedy to London’s Gatwick, and twice weekly from Los Angeles International Airport and Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport. Ticket prices to Fort Lauderdale start from US$290 and prices to Los Angeles start from US$320, one-way.
