Oneworld members British Airways, American Airlines, and Iberia are currently selling very cheap flights from Paris to the USA. Prices start at €253 for flights to New York, but even €300 for west-coast destinations, such as San Francisco is a great deal. This time, you can even fly to many smaller airports in California for only €305! Adding luggage to your trip will cost €100 extra for the roundtrip.
Worried about the Corona crisis? We get it, that’s why we’re only publishing deals for very late 2020 or 2021, where the world will hopefully have gone back to normal. The airlines are also offering flexibility for the tickets that you purchase, so make sure to book directly on the airline’s website.
Here are some examples of cities that you can fly to:
- New York: €253
- Boston: €255
- San Francisco: €300
- Santa Ana, CA: €305
- Burbank: €305
- Ontario, CA: €305
- Fort Lauderdale: €307
- Orlando: €308

- and many others…
Usually, you will always fly from Paris to London or Madrid with British Airways or Iberia and then continue to the United States from there. If you’re flying with Iberia, you’ll probably depart from Paris-Orly. The long-haul flights are usually operated by American Airlines. In some rare cases (e.g. New York), you can even fly nonstop.
You will be served a complimentary meal and be offered free drinks on the long-haul flights.

Information & Tips for USA
The USA offers many sights, natural wonders and cultural significance. Thanks to numerous airlines offering flights across the Atlantic, it is always pretty inexpensive to get there. Alternatively, you can also cross the Atlantic by boat.
Immigration, ESTA & Visa Requirements
The USA has one of the strictest entry regulations in the world. Most EU citizens, among others, are lucky to be able to participate in the so-called Visa Waiver Program. If you get an electronic entry permit (ESTA) for about €12, you don’t need a visa for entry.
The Best Time to Visit
Due to its sheer size, the perfect time to visit the USA varies greatly from region to region. In winter, Florida is very popular due to the mild temperatures. In the summer the West and East Coasts are flooded by tourists which drives up the prices for hotels and flights and during the Indian Summer in late autumn New England is a very popular destination. The hurricane season between July and September can be dangerous in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Florida and the southern states are regularly struck by these tropical storms. Blizzards occur from the East Coast to the Midwest during the winter months and regularly put air traffic and public life on hold.
The US dollar is widely used throughout the world and accepted as a currency in most tourist hotspots worldwide. That being said, carrying cash isn’t necessary in the US, all you need is a credit card! These are very common in the USA and are accepted pretty much everywhere without any issues. If you already have a credit card in your wallet, you should make sure that it does not charge a foreign currency fee if possible. Carrying a few dollars in cash doesn’t hurt though. You might need cash e.g. for the bus ticket if you want to buy it directly from the driver. Most of the time you even have to give exact change.
