I have already written about the Norwegian Airlines flash sale, with tickets for $99 including taxes New York to Belfast and Edinburgh (you still have time to buy a ticket!). You can also fly into London with Norwegian for $194.90 one way.

If you prefer to fly on a flagship carrier like American Airlines and British Airways, don’t book through the airline’s website direct, our flight experts will quote you cheaper for Economy, Premium Economy, Business and First Class long-haul flights.

In the low cost sector, you might consider Ryanair which is offering cheap flights from US to Europe into Madrid on Ryanair.com, through a partnership with Air Europa, a Spainish carrier. These prices are coming in at around $345 into Madrid.

Now Air Lingus is getting in on the game. They are offering transatlantic flights on their new Airbus A330-300. The new A330 aircraft has a total capacity of 313 seats, which is made up of 30 business class seats and 283 economy seats and is routed between Dublin and New York JFK.

Aer Lingus now has 63 aircraft with 15 of these servicing its long-haul network. A new route between Miami and Dublin joins Aer Lingus’ existing transatlantic routes Boston, Chicago, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, Washington and Toronto from Dublin and Boston and New York from Shannon, as well as Los Angeles, Newark and Hartford.

Aer Lingus’ transatlantic growth is an integral element of its successful strategy of expanding its Dublin Airport base into a major European transatlantic gateway. Flights from New York in the US to Dublin on Air Lingus start at around $330 each way.
