There are three relatively inexpensive ways to fly on low fare economy class tickets to Europe. Fly a low cost carrier like Norwegian or Wow. Fly an airline like Aeroflot via Moscow or Turkish Airlines via Istanbul for travel beyond your European destination and backtrack on a connecting flight for another low fare option. The third way for low fares is depart from an airport in Canada.

$673.11 CAD/$463.53 USD Wed Feb 3 – Wed Feb 10, 2016
$652USD Air Canada Vancouver YVR – Paris CDG in July
Possibly even better is a summer travel deal available for Air Canada and Lufthansa flights at $652 round trip with wide open availability in June, July and August. Most airlines,even Norwegian and WOW, will be priced well over $1,000 round trip from the USA. Low cost carriers do not look like low cost carriers with July prices. This flight seemed like an incredible deal at $548 round trip when I first checked Google Flights, but is now pricing at $652 to $685 USD round trip for summer travel.
Air Canada Vancouver YVR – Montreal YUL – Paris CDG
$651.29 USD Wednesday July 6 – Sunday July 17
