If soaring international airfares have discouraged you from booking a Europe trip this year, the latest offer from Norse Atlantic Airways might prove promising. The Norway-based, low-cost carrier is running a flash sale in honor of its first birthday, with flights from the United States to Europe for as little as $129 each way in Economy Light. There’s also currently a great deal on the carrier’s premium class to London from $822 round-trip.

The sale runs until 11:59 p.m. on June 20 for travel between August 21, 2023, and March 29, 2024, depending on the route, with blackout dates between December 14 and January 8.

Norse currently offers flights from Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. to five European cities: Berlin, London, Oslo, Paris, and Rome. Some of the best deals are on flights to and from London and New York, the Norway-based carrier’s largest and second-largest bases, respectively.

Some of the best deals include:

  • Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to London Gatwick Airport (LGW), from $129 one-way
  • Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport (FLL) to London Gatwick, from $159 one-way

To find the lowest fares, it may be helpful to enter your departure and arrival cities and then use the calendar feature to see the various rates over the course of the month.
The cheapest fares are for Economy Light seats, which have the strictest ticket change rules (any altering costs $200) and only allows travelers to bring an underseat bag for free, with all additional baggage (overhead and checked) costing extra. Meals in Economy Light are not included. Norse also offers Economy Classic and Economy Flextra fares that are each a bit more but with more inclusions.

Norse Atlantic’s premium offering, which features wider seats with a 43-inch pitch and a “generous recline,” according to the airline, has three tiers: Premium Light, Premium Classic, and Premium Flextra. Premium Light is the level at which the $822 roundtrip flights from SFO to London are currently on offer, which allows for a free carry-on, two meal services, and priority check-in. “It costs about $75 more each way if you want to add checked bags to your ticket. These are still good prices even if you do choose to add on checked bags,” reports Going.com (formerly Scott’s Cheap Flights), which alerted us to the attractive premium roundtrip fare for the long-haul flight from California to the U.K.

Norse Atlantic Airways is the reincarnation of Norwegian Air’s transatlantic arm, which, at one point, was among the largest European airlines with flights to the United States. However, Norwegian ceased transatlantic service in early 2021 after declaring bankruptcy. Norwegian Air does continue to operate flights within Europe.
