Norwegian Airways will be offering insanely cheap tickets from Britain to New York commencing this summer. The introductory price will be less than £60, making it the cheapest transatlantic ticket in the airline industry.

To be exact, the budget airline will only charge £56 for the ticket. It is a total of 50 per cent stash from its current tickets sales. At present, a single journey ticket from Gatwick to New York costs £125.

The budget fare was announced this new year through Norwegian Airways Chief Executive Bjorn Kjos. To come up with the cheapest flights in transatlantic, the low-cost carrier took several initiatives. First is to use fuel efficient airplanes, nndependent. co reports reports.

Kjos announced via I newspaper that their airline company, based in Oslo, has invested in aircrafts with modern engine. The aircrafts are fuel efficient thus cheaper to run. To be specific, the budget airways will be using Boeing 737MAX for their flights. Boeing 737MAX is known to go longer distance with minimum fuel costs, says Telegraph.

Another way for Norwegian Airways to cut off spending is by routing the flights to secondary airports in New York. By flying to out-of-town airports and not in JFK, that means the company can save more. Thus they can charge cheaper tickets to the passengers too.

At present, Norwegian Airways has a hub at Gatwick and flies to New York twice a day. This summer, the low-cost flight will depart from Edinburgh. The management also reiterates that the passengers will shoulder additional charges for excess check-in luggage and meals.

Aside from New York, Norwegian Airways also flies to Florida, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Last month, they introduced a flight going to Las Vegas for £400 return ticket.
