Denver Deals $330 Paris, $352 Amsterdam Jan-May 2018

Winter travel deals to Europe are in full swing this week from cities across the USA. Denver has Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris deals around from $330 to $400 round trip with American/Oneworld, Delta/Skyteam, United/Star Alliance and Icelandair for travel January to May 2018. Other cities in France and Italy are in the $400s.

United Airlines $352 Denver – Amsterdam

Denver DEN – Toronto YYZ (22h layover) – Amsterdam AMS – Toronto YYZ – Denver

$351.66  Thu April 12 – Sat April 21

DEN-AMS $352 UA Apr12-21

Icelandair $330 Denver – Paris

Denver – Keflavik KEF – Paris Orly ORY – KEF – DEN

$329.92 round trip  Fri April 13 – Fri April 20

DEN-ORY $330 FI Apr13-20

While this Icelandair ticket price is quite low, this provides a good case study for how Icelandair conceded its competitive edge for USA-Europe flights to the major alliance airlines.

Icelandair Economy Light for Carry-On only flyers

DEN-ORY FI economy fare types

The $330 ticket price is the newly introduced Icelandair Economy Light fare, which limits the passenger to a 10kg carry-on bag and does not allow a free checked bag. To get a checked bag requires purchase of Economy Standard fare for $57 more each way. Seat assignment still free and Iceland stopover still a possibility.

At $443.92 for Icelandair Economy Standard with checked bag included, the price difference becomes negligible and may make flying a major alliance airline a better deal.

DEN-CDG $400s Apr13-20

  1. To put these fares into perspective. The taxes and fee’s are almost as much as these fares. For example the Icelandair award trips TATL run $140 to $150 each way much of the time due to surcharges and taxes.
    Departure from Paris is an extra $75 to $100 at times.
    Good deals I’d say.

  2. I’m in Phoenix, haven’t seen any good April deals. Tempted to book this one and find coonecting flight to Denver. Not sure if I should wait for Phoenix deals. Any thoughts?
