SkyTeam members Air France, Delta and KLM came together to offer cheap flights from New York to Oslo. The fares only include a cabin bag. Without SkyTeam Elite or Elite Plus status, a checked bag would cost an additional US$150 (~€155) return.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Delta with your preselected flight dates. You can also use the Travel Dealz flight search, where you can get redirected to KLM or online travel agencies. Unfortunately, direct linking to KLM does not work.
The three airlines use different aircraft for the New York rotation plus there are some itineraries including a BOS transfer. Normally, you’d need to stop in either Amsterdam or Paris. However, this is a great price, especially considering how newcomer ULCC Norse Atlantic is more expensive (and they do not include carry-on bags or meals).
Search & Book
We couldn’t find an expiration date, meaning that these flights can sell out anytime. A 7-day minimum stay applies. You have to book at least 28 days before departure and all travel must be completed by October 29.
The best way to search for dates is to use our availability calendar above as we have filtered out airport changes in Paris. From there, you can choose to be redirected either to Delta’s website or to the Travel-Dealz flight search. There, you can book through KLM or online travel agencies. Alternatively, you can search for dates on Google Flights.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
Delta issues these tickets in booking class E. A flight via Amsterdam both ways would get you the following mileage:
- 6,808 Miles on China Eastern Eastern Miles
- 3,404 Miles on Aeromexico Club Premier
- 2,114 Miles on MEA Cedar Miles
- 2,114 Miles on Air Europa Club
- 2,114 Miles on Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
- 2,114 Miles on China Airlines Dynasty Flyer
- 1,692 Award Miles + 30 XP on FlyingBlue
- 846 Miles on Vietnam Golden Lotus Plus
Hotel prices in Oslo usually start at roughly €100, depending on the hotel category. Whichever category and hotel you opt for, make sure to get the best price! Our recommendation is to search on booking.com, or even on our own Travel-Dealz hotel search:
To get to Oslo from the airport, you should choose the national rail operator, VY. Their regional trains cost only NOK 114 (~€11) (NOK 114 (~US$11)), takes 23 minutes and can be combined with Oslo local tickets.
The express trains (which used to be much more expensive) take just 4 minutes more, but cost NOK 210 (~€20) (NOK 210 (~US$20). For students, it’s half-price, but you would probably need an Oslo local ticket to continue.
