If you want to get over to Greece during their shoulder season (September/October), here is a deal that lets you get there from New York City for just $120 one-way! Yes, it is Norwegian but this is a pretty good price!
Fly Norwegian from NYC to Athens from $120 One-Way
Let’s get this out of the way first – it is Norwegian that will be your carrier so you will be paying for any extras that you would normally expect to get with some other carriers. I have never flown them (yet!) but I would like to think that this is a crazy good deal!
If, you travel light (like a lightweight carryon) and don’t mind 9 hours on Norwegian in any seat, this is a deal you should take advantage of! Greece in the shoulder season of September/October is a really great time to visit. Not only is the weather still pretty good but you can head to some resorts that would typically cost hundreds of dollars a night and get them for as little as 20% of summer costs.
Here are the details on the Norwegian flights:
- Frequency: Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday
- Aircraft: 787
- Outbound Times: 9 hours and 10 minute duration
- Departure – 12:55PM
- Arrival – 5:05AM (the next day)
- Starting October 8, departure time will be 12:30AM and 4:40PM arrival
- Inbound Times: 10 hours and 30 minute duration
- Departure – 9:25AM
- Arrival – 12:55PM (the same day)
- Starting October 9, departure time will be 7:55AM and 11:25AM arrival
It will end at the end of October. The cheapest prices are found in the later part of October but you can find $140 in September as well as up to $220. The prices on the reverse route are really good as well (roundtrip can be done for as little as $375) but I would instead choose to book an award ticket on the reverse. If you use miles that normally charge fuel surcharges, you will find that they are cheaper from Europe (Star Alliance, that is). Read this post for more information.
