It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for: nonstop low-cost flights between London and New York are back.

Norwegian start-up Norse Atlantic Airways has confirmed August 12, 2022, as the launch date of its new route linking London Gatwick (LGW) with New York (JFK).

“We are very pleased to now be able to welcome customers looking to book great value flights between London Gatwick and New York JFK,” said Bjorn Tore Larsen, CEO of Norse Atlantic Airways.

The news comes a month after the long-haul, low-cost airline announced its first-ever route from Oslo (OSL) to New York (JFK) will take to the skies on June 14, 2022.

Here’s everything you need to know about the hottest new route in the sky.

Super Low-cost Fares Between New York and London Are Back

When Norse Atlantic says low fares, it means low fares.

We’re seeing the airline’s lowest return fares between New York and the U.K.’s capital for just $313 — that’s even $7 less than what the airline advertises in its latest press release.

To put that into perspective, the next cheapest return fare we’re seeing is $535 with JetBlue — that’s a saving of over $200!

Not only that, but the airline’s lowest premium economy fare is just $571!

“The introduction of affordable Norse Atlantic Airways point-to-point flights between Europe and the United States will benefit both local tourism and businesses,” said Larsen.

Bear in mind that this is the airline’s Economy Light fare and only includes an underseat bag measuring no more than 17 x 14 x 8 inches (45 x 36 x 22 centimeters). An underseat bag is not to be confused with a carry-on bag which will cost you an additional $25 each way.

Hot Tip: Norse Atlantic’s Economy Light is the best value fare if you only need a carry-on bag. Simply select the Economy Light fare and add a $25 carry-on bag for each leg of your trip and it works out cheaper than the Economy Classic fare.

The crazy low $313 return fare then becomes $363 when a carry-on bag is added, which will be needed in most cases.

Economy Class is the next fare category and is $90 extra each way. It includes an underseat bag plus a carry-on bag (max weight of 22 pounds/10 kilograms) and a standard checked bag (max weight of 50 pounds/23 kilograms), as well as a meal.

You can also opt to add meals to the Economy Light fare. The prices for meals are per person and per flight and will cost you $30 for the first meal service and $20 for the second.

Flight Details

The daily flight appears to only be seasonal, as the last bookable service through the airline’s website is on October 29, 2022.

The schedule for the service is as follows:

  • Depart London Gatwick (LGW) 1 p.m. — Arrive New York (JFK) 3:55 p.m. 
  • Depart New York (JFK) 5:55 p.m. — Arrive London Gatwick (LGW) 6:20 a.m. (+1)

The route from London Gatwick (LGW) to New York (JFK) will be the airline’s fifth to the U.S., joining Oslo (OSL) to Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), and Orlando (MCO).

All of Norse Atlantic’s routes will be operated by one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

Final Thoughts

When Norse Atlantic launches its new New York (JFK) to London Gatwick (LGW) route in August, it will officially be the cheapest way to fly nonstop between the 2 cities. 

Here’s to the continued expansion of the airline’s route network!
