Flying to Europe may soon be as cheap as flying to the next city over. Maybe even cheaper.

One way tickets overseas could be as low as $69 one-way if a European airline decides to implement these unheard of fares.

Norwegian Air Shuttle is the ground breaking airline considering to offer the low fare. The targeted cities would be those who currently offer no, or very few, international flights. These flights would land along the Atlantic in cities like Edinburgh and Bergen.

Round trip tickets would still remain low at around $300, compared to the current lowest fare of around $500. The CEO, Bjørn Kjos, wants to introduce these low fares as early as 2017. So far they are looking at Westchester County Airport in New York and Connecticut's Bradley International Airport as points of departure.

CEO Kjos said, "I think you will see a lot to that effect within five years' time. What will happen to (Lufthansa) when everyone starts to fly direct?"

They are looking at implementing Boeing 737's, which they state they've ordered 100 thus far. These planes are smaller and better suited for shorter overseas flights of this nature.

Other airlines have already been flirting with low cost fares. Iceland's WOW air supposedly offered a $99 ticket to Paris from Boston. The German airline Condor offered a $279 fare where you can go from Rhode Island to Frankfurt, Germany.

Last year Norwegian had offered up one-way trips for $227 going from London to New York, Los Angeles or Fort Lauderdale.
