If you’re planning a trip to Europe during the peak summer months, have a look at the fares now being offered by Aer Lingus.
Fares from JFK to Birmingham, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Shannon and Manchester are available, on limited dates between July 1 and Aug. 22 for as low as $339 each way. On the Dublin route, for example, that comes out to $780 round trip when all the taxes and fees are added.
Fares between JFK and Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Lisbon, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris and Vienna are as low as $349, each way. For Madrid, that comes out to $820 round trip with taxes and fees.
For many of the destinations the fare is $10 higher each way out of Boston. For Chicago, add another $10 to the Boston fares, each way, for Birmingham, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Brussels, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Paris.
The sale fares are available until 7 p.m. EDT on Monday, March 15. They’re not valid on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and appear to be selling out quickly on other days.
So far, this seems to be the best deal available for summer travel. Spring and fall fares are lower, of course. Generally, whatever the season, we’re not seeing fares to Europe quite as low as they were last year.
