Flights across the pond are getting cheaper all the time.

On Thursday, JetBlue and Norwegian Air announced an interline agreement that will allow passengers to seamlessly transfer between the two airlines when booking flights between the Americas and Europe.

The partnership has a planned launch of summer 2020, but passengers will be able to start booking these flights early next year.

Travelers outside of Norwegian’s 11 U.S. destinations (Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle) will be able to fly JetBlue to connect to the Norwegian network (which has flights all over Europe, including France, Italy, Scandinavia, Poland, Italy, Greece, and more).

And those coming the opposite way will be able to connect to JetBlue’s network of 60 U.S. and nearly 40 Caribbean and Latin American destinations.

“Of course we can say the implications are affordable fares to Europe because Norwegian Air always offers low fares to Europe, bookable now,” Min Kim, Norwegian’s senior communications manger for North America, told Travel + Leisure. “And JetBlue is a low-cost airline, with the best domestic fares. Combined, customers across the U.S. will have greater, seamless access to transatlantic flights at unbeatable ticket prices.”
