Budget airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet have long been a staple of travel in Europe, and after much back-and-forth, they’ve finally begun to make the transatlantic leap. Norwegian Air announced that it would be introducing routes from the East Coast to Europe last year, opting to keep costs down by flying out of smaller airports rather than major hubs. Today, the much-anticipated tickets went on sale — with prices as low as $65 one way. As is customary among budget carriers, a ticket guarantees little more than a seat (not one of your choosing) and a small carry-on, though passengers will be able to purchase à la carte upgrades like seat selection and checked luggage. Norwegian Air’s first US-Europe flight takes off from New York’s Stewart International Airport on June 15, with additional routes rolling out through June and July.
