US West Coast: €304 Nonstop United Flights from Paris (Without Luggage)

San Francisco Painted Ladies

Star Alliance carrier United is offering great fares for flights from Paris to the two most popular West Coast destinations. You can fly nonstop to San Francisco at €304 or to Los Angeles for only €309, with a stop in San Francisco.

This fare will only include one piece of carry-on as well as a personal item. If you want to add checked luggage you can do so on the carriers’s website for an extra €100-120 per round trip.


Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s current immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
