The airline first started flights from London Gatwick to نيويورك في أغسطس.

ومع ذلك, this included a stopover in النرويج.

The new flights will be able to fly direct without the connection from summer 2023.

The authorisation was issued by the Department of Transport in the US.

This could lead to more US destinations from London Gatwick including to LA, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale from March 2023.

Norse chief executive Bjorn Tore Larsen said: “We are very thankful for the support that we have received on both sides of the Atlantic throughout our application.

“This milestone represents a huge step in creating competition in the transatlantic market that will benefit consumers, stimulate business travel and lead to job creation.

“We are pleased that we will continue to deliver on our pledge to democratise transatlantic travel and we look forward to expanding our point-to-point route network between London Gatwick and the US as part of our summer 2023 schedule.

Norse Atlantic first launched in 2021.

The new transatlantic flights take the place of WOW Air, which used to offer £99 flights to the US but went bust back in 2019

And in 2021, Norwegian Air announced plans to close its long-haul operation and focus instead on a scaled-down European business.

Icelandic airline PLAY is also offering cheap fares to the US from the UK.

If you’re looking for cheap deals, British Airways has launched a flash sale which includes flights to the US.

Here are some other cheap flights too.
