You might soon be able to fly across the Atlantic for €60. No, Ryanair didn’t make any secret announcements, in fact Norwegian Air have beat the budget airline to it.

 

The CEO of the European airline Bjørn Kjos told Reuters this week that his company is exploring nonstop flights from the US to Europe for as little as €60.

So, all of those daydreams about strolling down fifth avenue with hands full of shopping bags could someday be a reality.

The airline said that while no decisions have been made on which European airports it would operate from, its existing operations at Gatwick, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham would "naturally be the first destinations to consider operating from," according to The Telegraph.

Iceland's Wow Air recently offered one-way fares between Boston and Paris for €88.
