Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. In this case, however, you’ll need to search through Google and book on Norwegian’s site. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to travel.
Lately we’ve seen quite a few deals on flights to Europe, but few to London. Fortunately, the UK’s capital city is finally on sale for summer travel, with discounted nonstop flights available from several US cities, including Charlotte, Philadelphia, Tampa, Washington and more. Nonstop flights start at $690 and go up to the $800s, depending on your departure airport — if you don’t mind adding a connection, you can save an additional $30-$50 when flying out of certain cities.
The cheapest fare available is a $690 nonstop flight from Tampa (TPA) to London Gatwick (LGW) on British Airways. There are also flights from Baltimore (BWI), Charlotte (CLT) and Philadelphia (PHL) to London Heathrow (LHR), priced at $734 or $736 on British Airways. These fares are available primarily on American, British Airways and US Airways flights and appear to be bookable throughout the summer, with the best availability in July.
Here are a few examples of fares we found:
Tampa (TPA)-London Gatwick (LGW) for $690 on British Airways:
Charlotte (CLT)-London (LHR) for $734 on American:
Philadelphia (PHL)-London Heathrow (LHR) for $736 on British Airways:
Baltimore (BWI)-London (LHR) for $736 on British Airways:
