Fare Alert Delta/SkyTeam sale $472-$534 DEN/MCO/ORD/WAS to 24 airports in France Jan-May

This is a fare alert for the most extensive list of airports in France I have seen on sale in the past year. There are discount fares from Chicago, Denver, Orlando and Washington to Paris and more than 20 other cities in France from $472 to $534 round trip. Many of these cities are places I have never even heard of before this post. I became so overwhelmed by the magnitude of routes on sale that I simply made a list of the cities with a Google Flights link for the Chicago route and ticket price. If a city interests you, then change the USA city to see similar fares from Denver DEN, Orlando MCO or Washington D.C. WAS.

These are all cities with Icelandair routes, which is what I started to write about with $425 Icelandair fares from Denver to Paris. Then I realized how big this Delta/SkyTeam sale is for France and unprecedented in my searches this past year. This SkyTeam sale to France seems to be the real fare alert for readers.

This is a great opportunity for people around these USA airports in Chicago, Denver, Orlando, and D.C. who want to fly somewhere in France besides Paris. I did not find these low fares to regional airports in France from other Icelandair airports in the USA like Seattle, Minneapolis, Boston and New York.

Interestingly, Nice is the only major city in France I do not see as part of these fare sale routes.

I found these itineraries on Google Flights, however many of the regional airports come up on Google Flights as requiring a phone call. I found plugging in these airports into Momondo pulls up an online travel agency ticket at the same price. Or pay $25 and call the airline to book.
