Well, Merry Christmas, indeed! Airberlin announced this Christmas Eve morning a last-minute $499 sale for winter flights from NYC-Berlin or Dusseldorf (and several connecting cities throughout Europe) booked through January 1, 2013.
• Flights must be booked between December 24, 2012-January 1, 2013
• Offer good for travel between January 14, 2013 – March 15, 2013
• Sale fares for NYC – Berlin and Dusseldorf, and to connecting cities (Copenhagen, Zurich, Vienna, among others).
• Fares include all taxes and charges.
We gave it a whirl and found these sale fares (oddly a few dollars cheaper, at $496.18) for New York – Berlin and Copenhagen flights. As you can see in the photo above, these sale fares weren’t available for every date we searched. However, by bumping the dates around a bit, they were easily attainable.
Similar $496 fares were available for New York to Copenhagen and Vienna. Other destinations seemed to also be on sale, but were a bit more expensive (NYC-Salzburg $687, for example). To try it out, visit airberlin.com.
The New Year brings many reasons to celebrate, and for budget travelers, falling airfares is certainly one of them. Keep the deals coming!
And in the meantime, happy holidays, Cheapos!
