From the majestic fjords of Scandinavia to the medieval castles of Central Europe, SAS Scandinavian Airlines can fly you to several European cities this 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 with flights across Europe as low as $278 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.
Below are the advertised rules for this sale, however, most routes only have the lowest fares available through the end of March, with April and May flights available for only $20 more roundtrip.
- Travel Period: January 8 - May 31, 2020. Flights between March 31 - May 31, 2020, roughly $20 more.
- Travel Days: Daily, but will vary by city-to-city pair.
- Blackout Dates: None listed
- 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 from March 30 onward. Flights from Miami are operated on limited days of the week through April 12, 2020.
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.
Tickets must be purchased by October 21, 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.
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.
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 destinations in Europe, this sale can be an excellent 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 airports.
As an example, I found seats departing Newark EWR on Sunday, March 1, returning from Dublin DUB on Sunday, March 8, 2020, for $278 roundtrip.
