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.
Norwegian’s cheap flights to Europe are back again — this time for travelers originating in Los Angeles (LAX). The latest deal is for flights to Copenhagen (CPH), Oslo (OSL) and Stockholm (ARN) from $302 round-trip. As usual with the airline, if you book through the Norwegian version of the website (accessed by selecting Norge as your language), you’re able to save quite a bit extra on airfare. The cheapest rates are available only on a handful of dates through the spring, but you can find some other slightly more expensive fares on a more frequent basis.
Routes: LAX to ARN, CPH, OSL
Cost: $302+ round-trip in economy
Dates: Winter and spring 2016
Pay With: American Express Premier Rewards Gold, Citi Prestige or Chase Sapphire Preferred
Here are a few examples of what you can book:
Los Angeles (LAX) to Copenhagen (CPH) for 2,697 NOK ($302) on Norwegian:
Los Angeles (LAX) to Oslo (OSL) for 2,718 NOK ($304) on Norwegian:
New York (JFK) to Stockholm (ARN) for 3,081 NOK ($345) on Norwegian:
