You know that European getaway you’ve been fantasizing about for, you know, ever? Well, now might be your chance to start planning: Budget airline Primera Air just announced new U.S. routes to Europe flying out of Boston, Newark Liberty, and Washington Dulles.

One-way trips to Brussels, Belgium, start at just $149 from Boston and Newark and $199 from Washington Dulles. And if you’ve got a bad case of the travel bug, you won’t have to wait TOO long: Planes are flying out of Newark Liberty as early as May 9, 2019, according to USA Today.

Primera Air added Brussels to their list of European destinations accessible from the U.S. because they noticed “a strong demand for low-cost trans-Atlantic flights from New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C.,” Anastasija Visnakova, Primera’s Chief Commercial Officer, said in a statement.

If Brussels is not your destination of choice, no problem—Primera Air already travels to London Stansted and Paris Charles de Gaulle from all U.S. cities. And then the question is posed: Why not just book all three?

But before you do so, just be mindful that Primera Air is a budget airline, which means you have to pay additional fees for services. For example, advance seating assignments start at $39.99 per flight, and additional bag costs (beyond one personal item) begins at $11.99 for larger carry-ons and $44.99 for checked bags.

Oh, and make sure you bring food on board with you—meals are not provided and the cheapest option is $14.99. After all, you might want something to hold you over on an international flight. (See all the additional fees here.)

However, if you’re simply looking to get overseas at a minimal cost, this is your ticket to book—whether a returning flight is in your future or not.

Tickets are available to purchase as of this week—but who knows for how long.
