There seems to be a bit of a transatlantic price war going on with airline fares. The latest crazy prices come from Norwegian, at £161 for a Belfast / New York (Stewart) return. The airline are selling off spare capacity on the route, which ceases operation on the 27 October. The cheap flights are available through September and October.

London > New York (Stewart)
Return | Hand luggage only | 05 Sep > 11 Sep | £161pp
If you look at those dates on Kayak, the best price is £221. However, going directly to the Norwegian website, and adding the code FLYFORLESS when prompted (the campaign code box is often pre-populated when using the links on this page) you'll see much better rates. I selected an outbound flight from Belfast at the £79 LowFare option, and a return leg from New York Stewart at £82.10 LowFare. The total cost came in at £161. These fares do not include a meal or checked luggage, so a Boots meal deal and compact hand luggage is recommended. A checked bag will cost an extra £100 (£50 each way) but could be shared between a few people.
Obviously, for the majority of readers, Belfast isn't the most convientient of departure airports. However, you could combine a short stay in Northern Ireland with a trip to the Big Apple. It's also worth noting that this route is operated by Norwegian’s new 737MAX - a narrow body aircraft with just one aisle which might feel unusual for a long haul flight. Also, New York Stewart is a 90 minute-ish coach ride from Manhattan. On the plus side, immigration queues are much shorter than the main hub airports, so that 90 minute journey could well be worth it.
Availability is wide open for September and October, so you're sure to find dates to suit you.
About New York
Loud, glitzy, sprawling and relentlessly busy, New York is the ultimate megalopolis…the city of cities that never sleeps! Made up of five boroughs, of these Manhattan conjures up the primary iconic images most people think of.
Situated where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic, with so much to see and do you’d be hard-pushed not to be wowed. But a word of warning… you may feel like you need a relaxing holiday when you get back!
People love New York for countless different reasons, with spring, early autumn and Christmas the busiest tourist periods. Weather-wise, best times to visit are April to June or August to October when the weather is generally milder and you’re less likely to need to carry a coat. Peak daytime temperatures in September are about 25°C, decreasing month by month to February. Summers are warm and humid and winters can be extreme, often with snow and biting winds. On the plus side, the bitter chills of NYC winters do feel dryer and somehow less harsh than the British cold. Read our full destination guide here.
