Deal Alert: Flights From NYC to Greece Dropped to $367 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
It's not everyday flights to Greece are on sale, so when fares dip below $400 round-trip, you book. That time is now. Norwegian is currently offering nonstop flights from New York (JFK) to Athens (ATH) from $367, as reported by Running with Miles.
Remember that Norwegian is a budget carrier so you'll have to pay for a checked bag and to select your seat. However, this is similar to other full-service carriers' transatlantic basic economy fares that impose the same ancillary fees. If you plan on paying extra for those services, it could make sense booking a LowFare+ fare outright, which also includes free meals.
To score these cheap fares head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through the calendar function to find dates and prices that work for you. From there, you can save even more if you book through the airline's Norwegian language website.
