From the fjords of Scandinavia to the perogies of central Europe, SAS Scandinavian Airlines can fly you to several European cities this fall, winter, or spring, for an affordable price. Tickets have been marked down to the airline's hubs in Copenhagen (CPH), Stockholm (ARN), Oslo (OSL), and beyond. Flights to Europe are as low as $282 roundtrip.

Save even more if you travel with a checked bag. Scandinavian Airlines sells a fare that includes one free checked bag for about $55 more roundtrip than the lowest available hand-luggage only fare. Compare that with the $120-$160 extra that other major carriers usually charge for a standard Economy fare and you'll save big if you prefer to purchase a classic Economy ticket.

Travel Availability

Below are the advertised rules for this sale, however, most routes only have the lowest fares available through the end of May. Travel dates in early June are mostly available from Newark only.

  • Travel Period: November 1, 2019 - June 10, 2020.
  • Outbound Blackout Dates: December 19, 2019 - January 5, 2020.
  • Minimum Stay: A Saturday night stay is required.

Departure days will vary by city pair as SAS doesn't operate every route on a daily basis. Itineraries from Boston are only available November 1 - 21, 2019, and again from April 20 - May 31, 2020. Flights from Miami are operated on limited days of the week.

A few of the connecting flights listed may require an overnight layover in Scandinavia. This can be a bonus opportunity to visit another city in Europe before flying back to the U.S. and it can potentially save hundreds of dollars as well. Click on the fare details below for more booking info.

Sale Period

Tickets must be purchased by August 27, 2019, or while supplies last.

These prices are for SAS Go Light fares, which only include a carry-on bag (up to 18 lbs.) plus a small personal item. Checked bag fees for Go Light fares are $60 each way. If you need to check a bag, it's much cheaper to purchase the next level Go Smart fare for around $28 more each way ($55 roundtrip). Go Smart fares include one free checked bag.

Seat Assignments

You may choose your own assignments from standard economy class seats that are still available during or after booking. Both Go Light and Go Smart fares have limited free seat selection in the back of the plane.

Alternate Fares

Go Smart fares will cost an extra $55 roundtrip and will include one free checked bag. This is a much cheaper option than adding a checked bag to the Go Light fare à la carte.

There are several destinations in Scandinavia on sale. Search for some super deals to places like Helsinki (HEL)Bergen (BGO), Aarhus (AAR), Gothenburg (GOT), and more. Flights to other destinations throughout Europe are also on sale by SAS, but you may find connections to European destinations outside Scandinavia to require an overnight layover on the return flight.

If you want to visit multiple cities in Europe, this sale can be a great opportunity to book an open-jaw itinerary by flying into one city and back from another, since it's such a widespread deal covering several European cities.
