From Meridiana: New Nonstop Service to Milan from Miami + $490 Intro Fares

Has it ever been easier, or cheaper, to travel internationally from the U.S.? As we've recently mentioned, low cost carriers are expanding at such a rapid rate, and well beyond the usual Northeast markets.

Starting June 8, Italian budget airline Meridiana will begin nonstop service from Miami to Milan, operating 4 times weekly. Meridiana currently flies nonstop from New York JFK to Milan, making Miami its 2nd U.S. city. 

Connecting service is available for travel elsewhere in Italy, including Catania, Palermo, Lamezia Terme, Rome, and Naples.

Special intro fares are available from Miami, with fares starting at $490 round-trip.

Seen below, we were able to find seats from Miami to Palermo for $490 round-trip in August, connecting via Milan. Not bad for summer travel!
