Traveling to the United Kingdom on a budget is about to get much easier.

Norwegian Air will offer flights from New York, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Gatwick Airport for just over $240, beginning in July 2014. The budget airline plans on having three weekly flights from New York, and twice weekly flights from the other two airports.

Travelers on Norwegian Air will make the transatlantic flight on Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Amenities such as meals and luggage will require purchase of a package that will cost approximately $50, but the total price is still considerably cheaper than other options.

Norwegian is similar to Ryanair, an Irish budget airline that allows travelers to get around Europe for low prices. The airline is already offering flights from the U.S. to Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm for less than $250.
