Earlier this week discount airline, Norwegian Air, rolled out a killer sale for flights from Providence, RI to introduce new flight routes that will begin later this summer from that airport. The new nonstop flights to Scotland and Ireland which start at $65 for a one way fare are now sold out, but Norwegian Air says its long term lowest fares on these routes will remain quite low, with more deals to come with fares starting as low as at $99 one way.
Norwegian’s eye-popping introductory fares show just how much competition there is among European discount airlines which in recent years have set their sights on U.S. airports. Norwegian, along with Icelandic upstart WOW Air, have added multiple new routes between the New England and Europe recently.
