Norwegian announced on Thursday that it is opening new flight crew bases at Rhode Island's TF Green Airport and Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, New York.
Year-round flights from those airports to the capital will begin in June, and to Ireland and Northern Ireland in July.
There also will be flights to Scotland from Connecticut's Bradley International Airport.
One-way flights will start at 65 US dollars (£52) for the first 10,000 seats. Once the introductory phase is over, flights will start at 99 US dollars (£79).
