Today might just be the BEST day of our entire lives because news just in is that you can now fly to New York and Boston from a mere €69 for a one way flight, with return flights coming in at only €138.
Budget airline Norwegian Air International (NAI) announced this morning to the Irish Independent that they will operate 12 flights a week from Dublin to Boston/Providence and New York, and four flights weekly from Shannon to Boston/Providence and New York.
Good news for Cork folk too, as there will also be three departures weekly from Cork to Boston/Providence - perfect for a spot of shopping. Flights from Cork to New York are expected to be in action for 2018.
Flights to New York will fly into Stewart Airport, located about an hour north of New York City, so no worrying about arriving in the middle of nowhere.
The budget flight prices include all taxes and charges (so no sneaky last minute price hikes) and are roughly one-third of the price of transatlantic flights with airlines like Aer Lingus, Delta and American to the US.
It doesn't include extras like checked bags, meals and seat selection but sure stuff your carry-on to the brim and pack a few crisp sambos and you'll be away.
It seems the transatlantic price war has officially begun, with WOW Air, the Icelandic low-cost carrier, also set to start flying direct from Cork to Reykjavik this May.
It offers one-stop transatlantic services to a range of North American destinations, including New York from €159.99 each way.
Best news you'll hear all day? We thought so, just book those holiday days quick before anyone else does.
