Flights to Europe are even more expensive than usual due, in part, to rising fuel prices, but round-trip flights to Oslo, Norway, just popped up for less than $500. With this deal, you can even get a round-trip flight from New York City‘s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Oslo Airport (OSL) for as low as $227 in September and October.

Round trips to Oslo from New York and other U.S. cities — including Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Boston and Chicago — are also available from September to April starting at $443; these rates are up to 49% cheaper than the usual prices for this route.

You’ll have to act fast with this deal since it’s only expected to last one to three days.

Sample flights

There are lots of options, but exact deal details differ by dates and routes. So, we’re going to lay out the exact routes here for your convenience:

  • JFK to OSL, starting at $228 for travel from September to October 2022, which is 72% less than the average price for this route.

Additionally, there are a handful of flights that are still approximately 40% less than what they’d normally cost, despite being more expensive than the fall JFK to OSL route:

  • JFK to OSL, starting at $474 for travel from November 2022 to April 2023.
  • Dulles International Airport (IAD) to OSL, starting at $474 for travel from September 2022 to April 2023.
  • Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) to OSL, starting at $443 for travel from September 2022 to April 2023.
  • Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) to OSL, starting at $468 for travel from September 2022 to April 2023.
  • O’Hare International Airport (ORD) to OSL starting at $458 for travel from September 2022 to April 2023.

To book this deal, visit Google Flights and take a look at the booking calendar, which lays out prices for all travel dates. Select your travel dates, then choose the airline and flights that suit you best. 

This round-trip flight is a great option available from JFK to OSL in early October for $229 — the layover is about two hours each way.

You’ll notice that this flight is available to book via both Delta and KLM, but we booked directly through Delta because it was cheaper than KLM. You’ll have the choice between booking an Economy Light fare or upgrading to economy.

The Economy Light fare is the cheapest option, but know that checking a bag costs an extra $70. You also won’t have the freedom to change or cancel your flights, choose your seats or earn miles for your trip.

With the economy option, you’ll be able to choose seats, change flights without any change fees, cancel the flight for its full value, board earlier, get miles and bring one checked bag for no extra cost. Think about what’s best for your needs before deciding to go with the cheapest fare.

Bottom line

This deal gives you the opportunity to save up to 72% on round-trip airfare to Oslo from several major airports in the U.S., including JFK, IAD, BWI, BOS and ORD. With this deal, you can get to Europe within the next year without breaking the bank.

While $227 is the best deal of the bunch (though it’s not available as long as the other options), a round-trip flight to Europe for less than $500 is still a great deal.

Take it from us: If this is a deal you want to take advantage of, don’t delay. Nail down those dates and get this rate in the next few days while it lasts.
