Budget airline Norwegian plans to slash the price of flights from Edinburgh to New York.
Tickets will be sold on flights to airports other than JFK using six Boeing 737MAX aircraft, which burn less fuel than other long-haul planes.
At the moment the cheapest flights are around £150+, and are available in the middle of January.
Edinburgh is just a four or five hour train ride from King’s Cross, and a tram links the city centre to the airport.
“Our planes are very, very fuel efficient,” said Norwegian’s boss Bjorn Kjos.
“We have a totally different set up to other airlines. The Boeing 737MAX has a very modern engine, which means it can go for a longer distance.
“We’ll also be flying to secondary airports in New York…That means we don’t pay as much and can charge cheaper fares,” he added.
The flights are expected to begin in summer of this year.
