    Gatwick/Buenos Aires air shuttle by Norwegian start from £259 one-way

    A new breed of low-cost carriers such as Norwegian, Wow are taking on the old guard such as British Airways and Air France-KLM in the skies above the Atlantic.

    This Wednesday, the first ever budget flight from London to South America departs from Gatwick airport. Fares on the 14-hour Norwegian Air Shuttle flight to Buenos Aires start from £259 one-way. The seats are tightly packed and food and luggage cost extra, but the no-frills model of flying, so well established on short-haul routes, is becoming increasingly common on intercontinental flights.
