You’ll soon be able to fly to New York for just £56

If you've ever wanted to go see the Big Apple then next year might be the perfect time to do it!

Budget airline Norwegian has revealed plans to cut the price of flights from the UK to New York to just £56 one-way starting in summer 2017. What a bargain! 

There are a few caveats, however. For starters, the flights will only depart from Edinburgh, Scotland. That means that unless you already live in the city, then it may cost you extra to get to the airport.

The bargain flights also won't be landing at JFK or Newark - the most conveniently located airports near the Big Apple. Instead, planes will be using other airports in New York State.

'We’ll also be flying to secondary airports in New York,' said Norwegian chief executive Bjorn Kjos to inews. 'That means we don’t pay as much and can charge cheaper fares.'

This combined with the airline using Boeing 737MAX aircrafts, which burn less fuel than other long-haul planes, means that they can keep costs down.

However, there are additional costs associated with checked baggage, seat reservation and meals.

But even after taking those extra costs into consideration, we're still pretty excited about the idea of scoring a flight across the Atlantic for less that £60. New York, here we come!
