New flights to New York from London are launching with returns from £255

New York City is on most people's radar for holidays, whether it's the sightseeing, the shops or the nightlife that's earned it the title of the City That Never Sleeps.

However, US holidays aren't exactly budget-friendly for Brits – but thanks to new flights, you could find some tempting bargains.

That's because Norse Atlantic Airways has opened up new flights between London Gatwick and New York JFK, and there are currently fares from £255.

The daily service will be taking off on the 12th August, with services on the swish Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

There are two cabin choices; Economy and Premium. Passengers can can choose from a range of rates including Light, Classic and Plus – the latter of which includes baggage allowance, two meals and flexible tickets.

The airline says that it plans to add more US destinations although it hasn't given a timeframe yet.

As well as the new route, the company will be operating temporary flights between Gatwick and Oslo this summer, also with Premium and Economy cabins – and fares from £41 each way.

Holidays to the US just got a little more expensive for Brits this month as the destination increased visa fees by 50%.

The cost of an Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA) – the visa that most Brits use to enter the country – has increased from $14 (£11) to $21 (£17).

The document lasts for two years and is mandatory for visitors to the US, such as Brits using British passports, travelling under the Visa Waiver Program.

All those who travel through the country on the way to somewhere else also need to pick one up.
