Flights to New York are usually among the cheapest ways to get to the USA. Prices around 300€ are not a rarity. But non-stop connections for that cost don’t come too often! Departing from Athens, you can buy tickets with SkyTeam carrier Delta for 298€ to get to New York’s JFK Airport.
As always, fares that come at such a low price do not include any checked baggage, but you can add the option to bring a larger bag or suitcase during booking. Unfortunately, this will raise the price to around 460€.
Search & Book
Google Flights won’t show these cheap fares, so you’ll have to try our Travel Dealz flight search tool or Skyscanner to find suitable dates. Generally, the deal should be available in September. Some available times would be:
- September 4th to September 14th
- September 8th to September 20th
- September 10th to September 25th
- September 16th to September 27th
Tickets should be issued in booking class E, and you can earn between 25% and 50% of the actual distance travelled with most SkyTeam programs.
