Per this FlyerTalk thread, there are some lovely $300 one-way or $600-$700 round-trip deals right now from SFO and other Bay Area airports to Gotenburg, Sweden. Tickets must be purchased by February 23, and there is no advance purchase requirement (meaning you can fly to Europe tomorrow if you want!). Similar to last week's LAX - Billund, Denmark fares, these flights can be purchased as one-way flights as well.

I was able to find several routings for these flights through London (LHR), Helsinki (HEL) and even Madrid (MAD). I was also able to find flights throughout April and May, in the height of summer (with select dates), and even in the early Fall.

The best way to quickly search for these available fares is to use the ITA Matrix calendar search, and play around with the cities and dates that interest you. I recommend choosing the option to see the calendar of lowest fares when searching.

Here are a few of the deals I was able to find:

From San Francisco via London $681 round-trip on British Airways

Itinerary for SFO-GOT on British Airways

From San Francisco via Rome $312.90 one-way on American Airlines

Itinerary for SFO-FCO one way on American

There are numerous other one-way routings that will get you to various European cities for roughly the same fare, which is a great opportunity to plan a summer trip. Additionally, there are also some great fares to be had from Norway to San Francisco. Theoretically, it's possible to combine two of these trips, which will leave you with a very cheap round-trip itinerary to Europe.

As always, if you’re looking to earn even more miles, then be sure to use a credit card that maximizes airfare purchases, like 3x on airfare with the American Express Premier Rewards Gold or 2x Ultimate Rewards points on the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.

To book these flights, I'd recommend heading over to Orbitz, where you can search for these cheap fares!

Best of luck, and if you're able to get in on this deal, please share your triumphs in the comments below!
