Miami MIA and Ft. Lauderdale FLL surprised me in how few deals are offered to Europe compared to San Francisco SFO, Los Angeles LAX, Chicago, ORD and New York JFK/EWR. The common ground for these four airport regions is Norwegian Air.
Miami prices do not seem to be heavily impacted by Norwegian Air in a review of airfare today for travel departing April to June. The discount rates by major airline competitors do not seem to be in place against Norwegian flying out of Ft. Lauderdale FLL. Fares to Scandinavia. Norwegian Air flies to a few other places from Miami at $200 or more less than competitor airlines, but not too many real deals out of FLL Airport and Miami for Europe.
Condor Airlines is the exception with some very low roundtrip fares from $400 to $650 to places like MAN Manchester UK, ARN Stockholm Sweden, and CDG Paris, France.
Ft. Lauderdale FLL lowest fare deals
- Ft. Lauderdale FLL – CPH Copenhagen, Denmark $604 Norwegian Air May 3-10 (United/SAS $946)
- Ft. Lauderdale FLL – ARN Stockholm, Sweden $674 Norwegian Air May 3-11 (United/Luthansa $904)
- Ft. Lauderdale FLL – SXF Berlin, Germany $702 Norwegian Air May 3-11

- Ft. Lauderdale FLL – DUB Dublin, Ireland $805 Jet Blue/Aer Lingus May 13-20
Miami MIA –ARN Stockholm $434 – $575 roundtrip deal
Condor Airlines/SAS via Manchester, UK
Condor Airlines flies Miami MIA – MAN Manchester, UK Sundays and Fridays. Return flights are only on Fridays. There are some very low fares with limited seats remaining for MIA-ARN Stockholm in May. There are deals to other cities in Europe too, like Paris CDG under $650 roundtrip.

This could be a great opportunity to snag a very low fare to Europe in May 2015 using the charter service Condor. The airline has flight deals to Paris, Germany, Helsinki, Oslo and the UK.
Orlando MCO is where there is competition happening between Norwegian and the big alliance airlines for Orlando, Florida air passengers. Up next.
