Norwegian adds third daily London to New York flight – landing at 1pm

That’s the verdict from Norwegian, who have just launched their third daily flight to the Big Apple.

The low-cost airline has added a mid-morning service to their transatlantic offering, tickets are available now and the flights will run from October 29.

Prices start from £155 one way in economy and £455 one way in Premium.

Thomas Ramdahl, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian said: “New York remains one of the most popular routes for Norwegian customers.

"We are delighted to be able to offer an additional frequency between London Gatwick and JFK Airport which will provide even further choice and flexibility combined with great value."

Last year the airline launched its second daily flight to New York, which meant travellers could take a day trip to the city if they wanted to.

So Sun Travel did just that – we sent a reporter over on the plane to try out just ten hours in Manhattan.

Norwegian has been making a name for itself over the last few years, for its super cheap transatlantic flight offerings.

The airline has invested in fuel efficient planes, which allow it to go further with cheaper fuel costs.

It now operates low-cost flights to everywhere from San Francisco and Seattle to Denver.

While the base fares are super cheap, added extras like check-in baggage, in-flight food and seat selection do push up the price significantly.

Last month, it was revealed that British Airways is plotting a bid to takeover popular budget airline Norwegian Air.

BA's owner International Airlines Group today confirmed it is exploring a potential acquisition of low-cost carrier Norwegian Air Shuttle.

Norwegian Air has expanded rapidly over the last 12 months and it has ordered several new aircraft to serve a raft of fresh routes.

Shares in Norwegian Air Shuttle rocketed 18 per cent in Oslo following news of IAG's interest.

IAG said that it has acquired a 4.61 percent stake in Norwegian and that it planned to start talks with the airline which included the possibility of a full offer for the company being made.
