Airline Deals –
Norse Atlantic –
This reasonably new airline is launching a new non-stop route between New York City and Rome, and celebrating with fares as low as $239 each way, which means you can visit the Eternal City on the cheap.
This is the fifth European destination for Norse and the first in the Italian market, after successful launches for routes between New York and Paris, Oslo, Berlin and London.
The first flight is set to take off from New York’s JFK to Rome (FCO) on June 20th at 1:00 am EDT.
“Rome is such a wonderful destination, and we are thrilled to be able to give Americans the chance to fly there this summer for such a great rate, said Bjorn Tore Larsen, Norse Atlantic Airways CEO in a press release received by ecoXoplorer.
“Norse is giving travelers the chance to jet off to new and exciting places in our ever-comfortable Boeing 787s. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, we hope this gives customers an incentive to finally book that trip to one of the most beautiful cities on earth.”
This iconic airline is launching a new route between New York and Gothenburg, Sweden’s second largest city and one of the world’s most sustainable destinations.
Gothenburg is home to equally iconic car-maker Volvo, also known for sustainability, and for safety. The iconic crystal manufacturers Kosta and Boda are nearby, too.
Gothenburg is a relatively small city packed with all the highlights of a major international destination: culture, shopping, world-class restaurants and stunning nature.
Also, Gothenburg celebrates its 400th anniversary in 2023, with many events across the city.

Yes – I’ve been to Gothenburg, and ready to return.
The route between Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and Landvetter will be aboard a brand-new Airbus 321 Long-Range plane with three each-way departures every week, substantially shortening the travel time.
Departures from New York are on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and from Gothenburg on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. This is a seasonal route, for the whole summer season of 2023 and returning for the 2024 summer season.
