Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Flights from the East Coast to Zurich are on sale, with prices starting from just $348 round-trip. Flights depart from New York City (JFK) on American and Philadelphia (PHL) on Delta to Zurich (ZRH). Note that the Delta fare is in basic economy, so you won't be able to choose a seat or change your reservation. This deal is available for departures in May and June, so it's not a bad deal especially considering summer travel to Europe can be double the cost. Make sure to book quickly as these fares may not last!
