By the end of 2017, travelers will be able to fly between Edinburgh and New New York (one way) for only $69. The route will use Norwegian Air’s six new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which the airline will be receiving in April.
According to Norwegian Air CEO Bjorn Kos the flights will begin the route shortly after for a very small price
“Our planes are very, very fuel efficient,” Kos said. “We have a totally different set up to other airlines. The Boeing 737 MAX has a very modern engine, which means it can go for a longer distance.”
The new route will use secondary airports in New York City, which are less expensive for the Norwegian company and allows then to charge travelers less.
A Times Heral-Record report shows that the company plans to expand to as many as 21 flights per week heading to Scotland, Ireland, Norway, and England from Stewart International Airport, about 60 miles from New York City).
