Per MileValue, you can score some cheap flights between New York (JFK) and Stockholm for early 2016. Right now, Norwegian Air is currently offering round-trip flights across the Atlantic for 259€, which is about in $275 USD.

The best way to search for these flights is to go to their site, and use the flexible calendar option, where you can get a month overview of the prices. While February 2016 had the cheapest options, they’re some decent deals in December of this year and January 2016 as well.

The best to search is using the flexible calendar function on the Norwegian Air site.

Searching on Norwegian Air will price out the fares in Euros. When looking in February 2016, the cheapest options I was able to find were for 259€, which is about $275 in USD, which is a great price to get to Europe!

While Norwegian may not be a part of a major alliance and these cheap flights won’t help towards any major elite status, you can still bank extra credit card points by using a card that maximizes airfare purchases, like 3x on airfare with the American Express Premier Rewards Gold or 2x on the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.

There are so many spectacular sights and fun spots to visit in the Swedish capital, which has over a million people residing in the metropolitan area.
