Super cheap US flights are back with £100 fares to New York – but you'll have to get to Paris first

SUPER cheap flights to the US are coming back this summer – but Brits will have to get to France first to make the most of the bargains.

Low-cost airline French Bee has launched flights between Paris and New York for just $139 (£100) this summer.

The French airline already offers cheap flights from Paris to San Francisco, but will now fly three times a week to Newark Airport.

The cheap fares will be no frills – meaning no extras such as meals, check in luggage or WiFi, but passengers will get a carry-on bag included.

There will be in-flight entertainment onboard with the new flights on Airbus A350s.

French Bee CEO Marc Rochet said: "Being the first affordable nonstop route option from Newark to Paris-Orly, we are convinced price remains a decisive factor.

"Thanks to our model and the unrivaled performance of our A350-900 fleet, we are able to offer flights at extremely competitive prices and always in optimal comfort conditions."

Cheap flights to the US to the UK have all but stopped due to the pandemic, with airlines including WOW Air and Primevara, who offered fares as low as £99, going bust.

Norwegian airline Norwegian have stopped transatlantic routes, once flying to a number of US cities from £149.

The 7 hour, 25 minute French Bee flight will fly from Paris at 6:45pm, with flights from Newark back to France at 10:55pm.

A new start-up carrier called Norse Atlantic Airways also has plans to launch cheap flights to New York, Miami and Los Angeles from European cities including London, Paris and Oslo.

It is also worth noting that the US remains closed to the UK, having shut the borders back in March 2020.
