Low winter fares are loaded with many airlines this week and Norwegian has low fare $139 one way deals from New York JFK to the Scandinavian capital cities. The fare is $139 one way from JFK to ARN, CPH or OSL. The fare differences come in round trip ticket prices for each city with even lower priced return flights from Oslo and Stockholm to New York and only slightly more for Copenhagen.
Round trip ticket prices are as low as $261 round trip to Oslo, Norway; $270 round trip to Stockholm, Sweden and $291 round trip to Copenhagen.
The catch with Norwegian is you save significantly by packing only a free 22 lb. carry-on bag, bring your own food on the plane and play seat roulette by booking a ticket with no additional fees and hoping for a window or aisle and not the middle seat or hope to move once on the plane. One carry-on bag, up to 10 kg/22 lb is free to take on board and normal 55 x 40 x 23 cm (22 x 16 x 9 in). A pre-assigned seat for JFK to Europe is $45 one way. A checked bag from JFK to Europe is $45 one way. A meal on the flight from JFK to Europe is $45.
Otherwise the fare is $90 more each way for the LowFare+ ticket at $229 one way and includes one checked bag, meals and drink and self-selected seat. The weight limit is 15 kg/33 lb if you pay a $90 Low Fare+ fee., which includes seat, one checked bag and food.
The $90 Low Fare+ fee is lower for tickets booked through Norwegian’s European website. This is why Google Flights suggests buying two separate one-way tickets.
