Sample flights

The deals below are basic economy fares on TAP Air Portugal, which include a meal and a carry-on. You will pay extra for checked luggage and seat selections. Flights below include a stop in Lisbon each way, so the shortest flight time we found was just over 10 hours. There’s not enough time to explore Lisbon with a short layover, but some flights give you half a day or more to get out between flights and see the city.

We found one of the cheapest deals from New York (JFK) to Barcelona (BCN) for $291 round-trip in March.

Travelers from the Windy City can snag a flight from Chicago (ORD) to Barcelona (BCN) for $323 round-trip throughout March.

We also came across a business class deal to Poland on TAP Air Portugal, including a meal, carry-on, two checked bags, premium boarding, priority check-in and seat selection. The deal is available from February to May and September to October.

This fare was reported by Scott’s Cheap Flights. 

There are options on TAP from New York (JFK) to Warsaw (WAW) at $1,625 round-trip with a layover in Lisbon (LIS) each way. Note that layovers can be a full day. The two examples we provided below stop for over 18 hours in Lisbon, which gives you time to explore the city and a business class seat makes that even more doable as you are more likely to sleep on the plane. According to Google Flights, prices for a business class ticket to Warsaw can normally range from $1,800 to $2,950.
