A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about some great fares enabling you to bounce around Europe on Aegean. The cheapest prices are reserved for non-stop European destinations from Thessaloniki (as low as $38 to places like Munich). These sale fares end today so do not delay if you want some cheap European tickets!
Aegean Fare Sale
If you combine fares like this with other great deals (like the under $500 tickets to Europe), it really gives you a chance to experience more of Europe for just a tiny bit more than the taxes on an award ticket – and you don’t need to use any miles to do it! These fares are pretty good, but that they are on Aegean is also good. Aegean Airlines is really a great airline with exceptional crews, nice lounges, and nice onboard service (even in coach). It is the airline that I fly now more than any other single airline and I always appreciate the experience.
Here were the details of the sale (which ends today) from this post:
The sale is based on travel from Thessaloniki or Athens (Thessaloniki is the cheaper city) to many cities around Europe. The return is a little more expensive, but it is still quite cheap overall.
To book these tickets, head on over to this aegean booking page and you can search by calendar for the cheapest options. The breakdown is by monthly period and city and looks like this:
- 9/22 – 10/31 – Athens from 55€ and Thessaloniki from 34€ – 20% off
- 11/1 – 1/11/2015 – Athens from 52€ and Thessaloniki from 33€ – 30% off
- 1/12 – 3/28 – Athens from 49€ and Thessaloniki from 29€ – 40% off
The sale fares are available on all direct, international flights from those cities. Returns are more expensive but not extremely so. Availability at the sale price is pretty good and you can use the calendar to find the cheapest date options. Remember, while all the tickets are cheaper during this time of year, only the direct flights from the above cities will reflect the discount of 20 – 40% off.
