Flights to South America typically aren’t the cheapest, but a great deal can save you some serious cash — and it’s in premium economy.

Here’s what you need to know about this deal — and how to book!

Fare Deal — The Details

This deal is operated by United Airlines to Santiago (SCL) in Chile. This deal is available from many United hubs, including Chicago (ORD) and Newark (EWR), and all include a layover in Houston (IAH).

Play around with a few dates on Google Flights and book directly through the airline or an online travel agency (OTA) like Expedia. You’ll find cheaper rates using lesser-known OTAs, but if you want more peace of mind, you may want to book with a more reputable option.

  • Class: Premium Economy
  • Routes: Baltimore (BWI), Chicago (ORD), Denver (DEN), New York/Newark (JFK/LGA/EWR), and Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Santiago (SCL)
  • Dates: April through June 2024
  • Rates: As low as $1,040 round-trip

Hot Tip:

While the short-haul flights are operated in economy, you’ll enjoy nearly 10 hours in premium economy on the flights between Houston and Santiago on United’s Boeing 767.

Best Ways To Book

The best availability can be found between April and June of 2024, though other dates may be available at a higher price.

Make sure you pay with a card that rewards you for travel purchases. Here are a few of our favorites — all of which offer big welcome bonuses and elevated earnings on flights:

Final Thoughts

This is a fantastic deal for South America, which is notoriously expensive if you’re booking in a premium cabin. Like many flight deals, this one likely won’t last long, so make sure to book before it’s gone!
