Icelandair is offering some pretty sweet deals that will take you from New York City to destinations all over Europe, and with availability every month from September 2023 to May 2024, you’ll have plenty of time to plan your trip.

The journeys may be long, but it’ll be well worth it with fares for under $1,500 round-trip.

Here’s what you need to know. 

Fare Details

The first thing you should know is that most of the itineraries on sale will involve a lengthy layover in Reykjavik (KEF). And although Icelandair doesn’t offer lie-flat seating in its business class cabins, the roomy seats, inflight entertainment, and Icelandic-inspired cuisine will almost make you forget you paid so little for these flights.

  • Class: Business 
  • Routes: New York (JFK) to Stockholm (ARN), Berlin (BER), Munich (MUC), and Copenhagen (CPH)
  • Dates: September 2023 to May 2024
  • Rates: From $1,430 round trip

To find this deal, first head over to Google Flights. Here’s an example from New York (JFK) to Stockholm (ARN)

We’ve found the most availability in January 2024, though flights are available each month from September 2023 to May 2024. 

There’s a lot of flexibility in the duration of trips you can take, so if you’d like to spend a bit more time in Stockholm, for example, enjoying fantastic Scandinavian design, beautiful greenery, and world-class museums (ABBA I’m looking at you), or moseying around the quaint shops and cozy cafes of Gamla Stan, it’s still fairly priced.

This is true whether you’re heading to Stockholm or venturing to Oktoberfest in Munich — availability is widespread across this window of time.

Best Ways To Book

You’ll nearly always find the cheapest rates through third-party providers such as Expedia or Priceline, which can be tempting when the price difference is significant. However, this isn’t usually something we recommend as airlines tend to be less helpful when you’ve booked with a travel agent versus booking directly.

Still, if saving money is most important, be sure to use a card such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve® to pay, which will earn you 3x Ultimate Rewards on all travel purchases and includes excellent travel insurance to boot.

Otherwise, The Platinum Card® from American Express is an excellent option if you’re booking directly with the airline since it earns 5x Membership Rewards on all flights booked directly with the airline or via (up to $500,000 per year).

Final Thoughts

We’ve found a ton of budget-friendly flights from New York (JFK) to Europe in Icelandair’s Saga business class through Google Flights. What you lose in lie-back seating you make up for in dollars in your wallet. We don’t expect these prices to last, so if you’re interested … book now!
