BERLIN - With a boom in budget airfares rapidly taking hold in Germany, the country's Bonn-Cologne airport is attempting to reach a deal for cheap transatlantic flights, which could cost as little as EUR 100, the weekly news magazine, Spiegel reported Monday.

Airport chief Michael Garvens is at present negotiating with several well-known US carriers to reach a co-operation deal, which if successful would further expand Germany's already extensive network of no-frills air links across Europe, Spiegel said.

In particular, passengers travelling the new transatlantic route from Germany could connect up with flights provided by budget airlines Germanwings, an offshoot of Germany's flag carrier, Lufthansa and Hapag-Lloyd Express.

Fares on the new transatlantic route could cost as little as EUR 100 during the introductory phase, Spiegel said.
