KLM $343 USD Toronto YYZ to Tallinn TLL Estonia; Paris $481 in dynamic Skyteam sale to Europe

Skyteam is participating in a fare war that I watched develop in front of my eyes. I think this is one of the first times I have actually watched fares drop in a big way as I searched Google Flights.

Skyteam dropped fare to Helsinki and Baltics yesterday from across North America to $600s. I don’t know what fares were like from Toronto yesterday. Today I saw a post that Air Canada had low fare to Helsinki at $412 USD round trip. As I searched that fare on Google Flights, FinnAir posted an even lower $390 round trip flight about an hour ago flying nonstop flights Toronto to Helsinki. FinnAir dropped prices for several Scandinavian cities and Baltics.

Within minutes Skyteam dropped Baltic fares down to mid-$300s.

Here are some of the low fares I have seen in past hour from Toronto YYZ for travel from September into winter 2016.

YYZ – MPL Montpellier, France $512

YYZ – NTE Nantes, France $493

YYZ – FCO Rome, Italy $440 Alitalia nonstop

YYZ – OPO Porto, Portugal $508

You get the idea. This is a great fare sale from Toronto.

There are many more European airports with SkyTeam fares far lower than you will likely find available for travel from the USA. Places like Croatia, Serbia and Albania and many regional airports in Italy, Spain and France are priced in the mid $500s to $600s round trip.
