This U.S. hub will launch a new flight to Greece in May, with starting fares as low as $249

Traveling to Greece from the United States has never been simpler.

On Wednesday, the low-cost carrier Norse Atlantic Airways, headquartered in Oslo, Norway, revealed the opening of a new route between John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) in New York and Athens International Airport in Greece. From May 30, 2024 through October 26, 2024

The new flight will take nine hours and thirty-five minutes. At the moment, the airline flies for eighteen hours straight between New York and Athens, with a stopover at London’s Gatwick airport.

In a statement, Bjorn Tore Larsen, the CEO and founder of Norse Atlantic Airways, stated, “This launch underscores our commitment to meeting the evolving travel needs of our passengers.” “We believe this route will not only cater to the demand for travel to Greece but will also create opportunities for cultural exchange and business collaborations between these two vibrant destinations,”

The airline advertises that tickets for the new route, begin at $249. However, during the summer, one-way fares vary from $528 to $1,039 in price.

According to Norse, passengers can also use the flight as a hub from which to arrange independent connections to other Greek islands, including Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Naxos, and Milos.

The aircraft used for the flight is a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which comes with two cabin options: Economy and Norse Premium. Through the purchase of add-ons, passengers can upgrade their ticket to include additional meal services, checked baggage, reserved seating, and more.

Greece offers a plethora of attractions for tourists, ranging from its stunning beaches to its capital city. Santorini, dubbed the “most Instagrammable island in Greece,” will welcome a number of new establishments throughout 2024, including the 37-suite luxury resort Santo Mine Oia Suites and the brand-new The Villas by Santo Collection.
