More Budget Flights to Europe: $89 to Norway
We know where you're going this summer.
Norwegian Air continues to make good on its promise to make ultra-cheap flights between the United States and Europe a thing.
Today, the budget carrier introduced their newest routes—New York and Rhode Island to Bergen, on the western edge of Norway—with tickets starting at $89, including all taxes.
According to The Points Guy, the flights will take place twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, beginning July 1.
Since late 2016, the airline has been promising cheap fares for as little as $69 one-way to destinations across Europe. And in February, the airline launched $65 flights from Rhode Island and New York to Edinburgh, Belfast, Cork, Dublin, and Shannon.

It’s not just Norwegian offering super-cheap seats to Europe. WOW Air, too, has introduced flights for less than $70 one-way.
While these $89 fares are likely to sell out fast, they’re not part of any particular flash sale. Instead, Norwegian and WOW are looking to make affordable air travel to Europe the norm. And they’ve been able to do so by introducing new, energy-efficient aircraft (A330-300s, Boeing 737MAX planes) and servicing smaller airports.
These $89 flights to Bergen, for example, won’t fly out of John F. Kennedy International Airport. Instead, travelers will have to depart from Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, New York. That’s about an hour and a half north of Manhattan.
