    Pack your bags. Next February, you will be able to fly from Oakland to Rome for only $229.

    Norwegian Air is pushing to expand its international travel from the United States with bargain priced flights, reported USA Today. People itching to take a vacation will be treated with cheap and direct trips from cities like Oakland, Los Angeles, and Newark. Rome is just one of the many destinations for Norwegian Air.

    Other non-stop flights from Oakland include trips to London, Barcelona, Copenhagen, and Stockholm. You can fly to each of these cities in July for less than $300.

    The company has declared itself as “the world’s fastest growing airline” and seems to be holding to that claim. Along with flying out from the trio of cities listed, USA Today also reported that the company will go from 12 other U.S. locations to 13 different destinations spanning across Europe. Fifty-two of those flights will travel direct. This means no layovers or missed connections.

    To make customers’ lives even easier, Norwegian Air has added price trackers when looking to book a flight. With this, flyers are able to compare costs of the airline’s trips. This can be accessed by choosing a destination and departure location. Other features will summarize a city’s attractions and culture. You may even be given a suggested reading about the vacation spot.

    Those who travel may also get to board the new Boeng 737 Max, according to USA Today. The airline has confirmed that is has ordered 100 of these aircrafts, so travelers will be able to fly in the new Boeng plane as soon as this summer. Along with the contemporary interior of this plane, it will also be more eco-friendly, using less fuel than their previous models.

    Flights can be booked online now at Norwegian Air’s website.
