Norwegian Airlines targets a £60 flight to New York

29th December 2016

Travellers hurt by the post-Brexit depreciation of sterling but wanting to fly cheaply to the USA will be interested to hear of plans by Norwegian Airlines to offer ultra-low one-way fares to New York early in 2017.

The route options are limited at the moment (Gatwick and Edinburgh are two bases) but the airline is attempting to take advantage of using cheaper airports and more fuel-efficient aircraft to lower their operating costs and make a full flight commercially viable. More here from the Guardian.
