The following fares are all at prices below what we regularly see for that specific city pairing and destination. Some are part of ongoing sales, and some are unadvertised price drops that may only last for a limited time. If you're interested in any of these handpicked deals, we recommend you book ASAP to avoid missing out on a bargain buy.
Here’s a deal that’s hard to beat from Royal Jordanian’s Global Summer Sale we posted earlier this week. In case you missed it there are lots of great airfares to destinations in the Middle East and beyond that rarely go on sale, like this fare from New York-JFK to Tel Aviv for $609 roundtrip. Travel is valid from September 10 through March 20, 2020, with departures available on most weekdays. As an example, I found seats departing JFK on Tuesday, November 12, and returning from TLV on Thursday, November 21, 2019. Peak holiday travel dates blacked out.
Southwest’s latest nationwide sale has some great deals out there for late summer and fall travel. Take this one for example; fly nonstop from Chicago-Midway to Denver for $122 roundtrip through the middle of December. Since Southwest flights can only be purchased directly with the airline, I went to Southwest.com, to find this fantastic fare. Tickets at the listed price can be booked leaving MDW on Tuesday, September 3, with returns from DEN open on Tuesday, September 10, 2019. Other dates are widely available, but the sale ends this Thursday so you’ll need to start planning your Rocky Mountain high on the hurry.
There’s never been a simpler way to visit the Big Easy from Phoenix with this new nonstop service from American. Fly from the carrier’s Sky Harbor hub to New Orleans for only $131 roundtrip this January or February. For the most part, flights leaving Phoenix will have to take place Tuesday, Wednesday with return flights from NOLA available Monday through Wednesday and Saturdays. As an example, I was able to secure tickets at this price leaving PHX on Wednesday, February 5, and returning from MSY on Monday, February 10, 2020.
Count yourself four-leaf lucky with this deal from Aer Lingus, fly nonstop from Boston to Dublin for only $346 roundtrip. Travel around the city enjoying the 12-pubs of Christmas this December with this fare that’s valid on select travel days starting in late November through December 15, 2019. As an example, I found seats at this price departing BOS on Thursday, December 5, and returning from DUB on Saturday, December 14, 2019. This price is for Aer Lingus's Saver fare, which only includes cabin baggage. If you require a checked bag, you can upgrade to the Smart fare category for $40 more each way. Travel dates in November available for about $20 more.
Travel from Baltimore to St. Thomas, USVI for $299 roundtrip on Delta Air Lines this winter. No passport needed! Flights to the tropical U.S. territory are available on scattered dates starting in January and February 2020. Travel is possible most days of the week, but you’ll need to play around with travel dates as some weeks are starting to sell out quickly. Searching Delta’s website, we were able to see departures from BWI on Thursday, January 23, with a return from STT on Monday, January 27, available. Making for a perfect long weekend winter getaway.
In honor of the 4th of July, Emirates Airlines is having a sale to destinations across its global network, flights to Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia are all seeing some sweet price drops by the Dubai-based carrier. One of the best deals out of the bunch is this nonstop fare from Newark to Athens, Greece for $560 roundtrip. While other airlines are charging $60 each way for a bag to Europe, you’ll have one included when flying with Emirates making this a perfect choice for passengers looking to pick up some souvenirs on their trip. As an example, I found tickets at this price departing EWR on Sunday, September 29, and returning from ATH on Tuesday, October 8, 2019. Holiday travel blacked out.
It might be a little late to spend Independence Day in the nation’s capital, but that doesn’t need to stop you from taking a trip there on the cheap later this year. Fly nonstop from Seattle to Washington DC-Dulles for $237 roundtrip this fall. You’ll have your pick from Alaska, Delta, or United on flights departing on Tuesday, Wednesday starting on September 4 through November 20, 2019. United still limits its carry-on baggage to a small personal item, so if given a chance pick Delta or Alaska as they allow for a full-sized cabin bag. Searching Alaska, I found seats at this price departing SEA on Wednesday, October 2, and returning from IAD on Tuesday, October 8, 2019.
Visit incredible India in style on the world’s best airline for 2019, Qatar Airways. To celebrate the 4th of July, Qatar is offering $50 off itineraries when applying promo code: FIREWORKS. Using the code, I was able to knock down the price on a route from Philadelphia to Mumbai to $759 roundtrip. Much cheaper than all other available options during that time frame. You’ll find this deal available on select Sundays through Thursdays starting in early September through late November. Searching Qatar’s site, I found flights leaving PHL on Monday, October 28 and returning from BOM on Tuesday, November 12, 2019. Only Qatar’s website will allow for the promo code deal so head on over there to book.
Soak up some sun south of the border and visit San Jose del Cabo, Mexico for $250 roundtrip on American Airlines.
