Cheapest Flights To Ireland From USA
That dream trip to Ireland is about to become much more affordable
Cheapest flights to Ireland from USA
Norwegian Air have long promised the cheapest flights to Ireland from USA. Now, with 2017 upon, it appears we won't have to wait much longer. There have been some legislative issues to sort out on both sides of the Atlantic. However, as we settle in to the new year, Norwegian plan to have some bargain early fares on sale from February and, in this case, 'bargain' really does mean bargain. Early promotional prices are expected to start at just $69.
Speaking to Irish media in December, Niall MacCarthy, managing director of Cork Airport confirmed that Norwegian are planning to offering significant savings to consumers travelling between the US and Ireland.
We’re predicting the the fares will be in the €150 one-way mark, including your bag, and we think there will be some lead-in special offers around the €69 mark, to get the route primed.
With the first route set to be fully operational from July, Norwegian also confirmed that the final average cost of flying from New York and Boston to Ireland will be less than $350 return, including taxes. With that price also set to include one checked bag, it will come as no surprise to learn that Norwegian won't be offering the bells and whistles that legacy transatlantic carriers provide to consumers.
For one, you're unlikely to have ample legroom on your five hour journey. Norwegian will operate the route with the 186-seater, narrow-bodied Boeing 737 MAX. Similarly, don't expect to be turning up at JFK or La Guardia for your flight from New York to Ireland. Instead, Norwegian are set to officially announce Stewart International Airport near Newburgh as their base for the New York flights. Similarly, it looks likely that the Boston service will be operated out of T.F. Green Airport near Providence, Rhode Island.
Having said all that, Norwegian, much like their Irish counterparts Ryanair, certainly succeed in disrupting the status quo and there'll be no shortage of consumers willing to forego the extras to secure low-cost transatlantic fares. Icelandic carrier WOW Air have already opened up the low-cost transatlantic route but, with those flights requiring a two hour stop in Reykjavik, Norwegian's offering will no doubt be even more tempting to US visitors planning a trip to Ireland in the summer of 2017.
