Norwegian Air is now selling one-way tickets for flights from the U.S. to the British Isles for as little as $65 — including taxes.

In an announcement Thursday, the budget airline describes the $65 rate as an “introductory fare” for 10 new nonstop routes that it will start flying this summer.

By Friday, many flights at the $65 rate had sold out, but tickets for the new routes were still available for as little as $99. Visit Norwegian’s website for the latest prices.

Norwegian does not charge for carry-on luggage. The airline also notes that you can save additional money by:

  • Bundling a seat reservation
  • Pre-ordering a meal service (including alcoholic beverages)
  • Pre-paying for checked luggage

Norwegian’s 10 new Boeing 737-MAX trans-Atlantic routes will fly out of:

The routes will fly to:

  • Belfast, Northern Ireland

Bjørn Kjos, CEO and founder of Norwegian Air, says in the company announcement:

Our new, non-stop service will enable tens of thousands of new travelers to fly between the continents much more comfortably and affordably.
