You read that right. In an estimated four to five years, it seems that according to Ryanair, we could see these rates. A spokesman from the airlines said that it hopes to feature one-way transatlantic flights priced at approximately 10 pounds, which is about $15 U.S. Dollars. They see it as a sensible evolution in the European market, as airlines such as Norwegian Air already offers low-cost flights across the Atlantic Ocean for under $200. This is their attempt to break the pattern of high-priced flights seen all around.
The shift could do wonders for the intercontinental and international business sectors, as well as help spread education and culture both ways. Students no longer will have to save up for years in order to go backpacking across Europe as is a popular trend among young adults.
Primary destinations projected for this include New York, Boston, Chicago, and Miami in the United States. On the European side, London, Dublin, and Berlin are set to offer these low-cost flights.
Though time will be necessary for this to take place as Ryanair lacks the long-haul air crafts needed to handle the long flights. Still, progress is better than none at all.
