From both Austin and Chicago, Norwegian will launch non-stop flights to its base at London’s Gatwick airport this spring. The carrier will offer four flights a week from Chicago (starting March 25) and three a week from Austin (starting March 27). The new service on Boeing 787 Dreamliners will launch with fares starting at $174 one way from Chicago and $249 from Austin.

Beyond the two new cities, Norwegian also is adding more destinations from U.S. cities it already serves. The airline will add routes to Paris from Boston, Newark and Oakland.

With the new service announced Wednesday, Norwegian will offer 56 different trans-Atlantic flights from 15 U.S. airports to 13 destinations across France, Ireland, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Norwegian’s tally of U.S. routes grows to 62 when its service to the French Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe is counted. The carrier flies to the islands from New York JFK, Providence and Fort Lauderdale.

You can already book the new routes on their website.

Fees

While Norwegian offers great prices, there’s tons of fees to watch out for, unless you’re traveling only with a small carry-on. You’ll be charged for advance seat assignment or meal service for the roughly six-hour flight. A checked bag will cost you $45 one way. Check out their optional service charges here to make sure this is a good deal for you.

These are great prices for one way travel to London but just make sure you read up on their fees. You can book the return leg separately.
