Icelandair launching San Francisco-Iceland route June 1, 2018 is an airfare deal opportunity I have been anticipating. Icelandair tends to offer some of the lowest airfares to Europe in their periodic sales. Often major alliance airlines compete.
Icelandair San Francisco to Paris for $366 round trip is the kind of deal I am talking about. Ticket prices for September 2018 are as low as $381 for SFO to Paris CDG.
SFO to Manchester UK $416 in September and SFO to LGW for $481 in September. October has even lower prices.
Other Icelandair ticket deals:
Icelandair San Francisco SFO – Keflavik, Iceland KEF – Paris CDG – KEF – SFO
Best thing about these low Icelandair fares is the flight times are mid-day with good departure and arrival times. No 4am WOW arrival in Iceland. Also, a 22lb. carry-on bag included and seat selection. You can add a checked bag by upgrading the fare for $50 each way.
Wait until September and October, or even sooner, and there may be some competitive pricing for fall travel by the major airlines. Denver is the city that comes to mind where Icelandair drove Europe sale prices down significantly across major alliance airlines in recent years.
