SAS $597 LAX to Stockholm August dates

Scandinavian Airlines SAS has low fares under $600 round trip from Los Angeles LAX to several airports in Denmark, Norway and Sweden for travel in August. These fares are easier to find on the SAS website than Google Flights and they price out several hundred dollars more on United Airlines.

One aspect of summer travel fares that has become apparent to me over the past two years is a steep climb in airfare for late June and July departures compared to August departures. The round trip airfare from California to anywhere in Europe is generally $1,000+ from mid-June through July, before fares drop by hundreds of dollars in August.

Most European airports are still priced in the $800s and higher for August, except Scandinavian airports see a fare drop in August making this a far cheaper month for air travel from the USA.

Google Flights Aug 10 LAX Europe fares

SAS fares to several Scandinavian airports in August are hundreds of dollars less than even low-cost carriers Norwegian and WOW Airlines to these airports.

SAS fares in August flying LAX to Stockholm nonstop are hundreds of dollars less than flying to any other airports around Europe. Norwegian Airlines, RyanAir and a variety of other airlines will place you almost anywhere in Europe for $100 to $200 round trip. From California, routing your European vacation through a Scandinavian airport gateway can reduce airfare significantly for a trip to Europe in August.

The major carriers usually discount several other places in Europe for September travel so this deal is for travelers who want to visit Europe in August.
