Do you just need to get away? Well, this time it’s not Southwest Airlines to help, but the European discount carrier, Norwegian Airlines. They have been promoting some crazy fares across the Atlantic and are at it again: They currently offer fares from New York, Miami, Orlando, Los Angeles and San Francisco to cities all over Europe for under $300 one-way.
Here are some of my favorites in the list with departure from Oakland in the San Francisco Bay Area, all one-way:
Amsterdam, April: from $212
Barcelona, March: from $258
Berlin, April: from $226
Munich, April: from $226
Paris, April: from $226
There are many other cities on sale, as far afield as Dubai for $310! If you are looking for some sunshine, destinations in Greece, Spain and Italy are also available.
You can find all the deals here.
I haven’t flown them myself. Norwegian is a low-cost carrier, so you should not expect too much. They do operate brand new Boeing B787 Dreamliner, which is a plus. They also have in-seat entertainment systems, which is better than United and other mainline carriers. According to their site, they offer meals and drinks for online pre-order for a charge. Your carry-on up to 10kg is free, check-in luggage costs extra.
At these prices, it’s worth a try! Have fun and travel safely!
