Cheap Flights New York to London
Norwegian (www.norwegian.com,) Europe's third largest budget airline after Ryanair and easyJet, has begun flying the very popular New York to London route and is offering some unusally low prices, with a one-way fare in low season starting at $257 U.S.
This airline provides free wi-fi on all flights, but as with many budget airlines there are extra charges for a lot of other items. Norwegian already flies between New York JFK asnd Oslo at very good rates--a one-way ticket in August will set you back just $288 U.S. Once in Norway, however, expect high prices for virtually everything. Oil-rich Norway is one of the most expensive countries in the world.
Norwegian provides extensive service in Europe, North Africa and even has routes in Asia. A ticket to Bangkok from Oslo can cost as little as about $230. Why is it that Europeans, who in many ways are more highly taxed and regulated than North Americans, seem to benefit from lower air fares?
In any case, more competition may in time lead to lower costs for us too, or so the theory goes. Happy Canada Day, everyone.
