Fly from any New York airport to Greece for under $300 roundtrip. We're seeing fares as low as $281 roundtrip from Newark to Athens and $294 roundtrip from New York to Athens on Swiss, Air Canada, or for a few dollars more on Lufthansa.
Update: This deal popped up in late August and is back live again as of September 3, 2019, 10:30 am ET!
Travel from late October through early April. Departures from New York are available in early October as well, but your return flight from Greece must be the last week of October, or later, to get these prices.
This is a rare deal to Europe that is valid for travel on any day of the week, when available. A Saturday night stay is required.
Peak travel times in late December and early January are blacked out.
