If you live in Chicago or Austin, you now have a reasonable way to get to Europe without spending a fortune. Forget about air fares in the thousands and think in terms of hundreds (dollars, that is).New guy in town
Named the World's Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Value Airline of the Year 2018, Norwegian recently launched two new routes from Chicago and Austin to London. These flights began March 25 and March 27 respectively. Norwegian is the first low-cost airline to offer transatlantic service from both cities.“When we initially announced our new Chicago service back in July 2017, we did so with four weekly flights. However, due to high demand, we increased our offering to daily service. In Austin, we're only the second airline to offer year-round transatlantic service, and our goal is to increase frequency in the near future. Both of these cities have great growth opportunities,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian's Chief Commercial Officer.
