Inflation continues, but next summer you can travel to Europe from Fort Lauderdale for under $200. If you want to go back, you’ll have to cough up some more.
North Atlantic Airways, a low-cost carrier that offers low-cost transatlantic flights between select US cities and Oslo, Norway, has announced its summer 2023 schedule.
In addition to frequent flights from New York to London and Berlin, the airline will operate twice weekly flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to Oslo from March through August. The cheapest one-way economy package fares start at $190 including tax. According to the airline’s website, the $190 fare is available for 34 days from March to October.
Fares are higher during peak summer months from June to August, up to $400.
So what’s the catch? The cheapest economy package, Economy Light, looks like the bare minimum experience with only one underseat bag included in the fare. If you want to check in your luggage, or if you want to eat with your luggage in the overhead bins, you’ll need to pay an extra fee to upgrade to Economy Classic. The next level, Economy Plus, allows you to choose your seat.
Then there are three levels of “Premium”: Lite, Classic and Plus. With the Premium Plus upgrade, he gets priority check-in, premium boarding, 2 checked he gets 2 meals and 2 checked bags. You can also use “Premium Boarding” and “Priority Check-in”.
Still, if you limit yourself to one under-seat bag, $190 is the lowest price from Fort Lauderdale to Europe. From Oslo you can find flights and trains to other European cities.
And when are you going back? The cheapest flight from Oslo to Fort Lauderdale is $229.
Airlines are not immune to inflation. When it debuted last spring, the lowest one-way fare from Florida to Europe was $149.
The airline, which entered service in early 2021, has a fleet of 15 “modern, fuel-efficient and eco-friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliners.”
