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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.

Travelers looking to explore popular destinations in Scandinavia currently have the opportunity to book cheap flights from the eastern United States to cities in Finland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden. This deal is available trips starting in October and lasts through dates in February 2020. Airlines offering cheap flights as part of this deal include American, Finnair, United, SWISS, TAP Portugal and other Oneworld and Star Alliance airlines. It is important to note that, though travelers will be allowed one personal item and one carry-on item, checked bags are not included.

This deal includes departure cities in the US such as New York and Miami, with arrival cities including Helsinki and Oslo. Travelers can choose to visit these popular Scandinavian cities in either the late fall or winter months. During the winter, Scandinavian countries boast fantastic views of the Northern Lights, also known as aurora borealis.

To search, head to Priceline or Expedia.
