Western USA: €331 Oneworld Flights from Scandinavia (€403 with Luggage)

LasVegas 5

Oneworld partners British Airways, Finnair, American Airlines, and Iberia are currently offering cheap flights to various US destinations from Oslo, Stockholm and Gothenburg starting at only SEK 3,811 (~€341). While that price isn’t particularly exciting for the East Coast, it’s a good price for the Western side of the country, like Los Angeles, Seattle or the Bay Area. Unfortunately these bags only ainclude a carry-on bag. Adding a checked bag would raise the fare to at least SEK 4,646 (~€416).

These are the prices from Oslo:

Many destinations can be reached with only one layover in London or Helsinki. To others, however, you’ll have a second layover in a major airport in the USA (e.g. Chicago). A great opportunity to stretch your legs – or even to add a mini-stopover.

Search & Book

This deal expires on July 17, 2023. Your trip has to be at least 6 days long or must include a Sunday. Furthermore, you must book these flights at least 7 days before departure. While these flights are non-refundable, they can be rebooked for a fee of €150 + the price difference.

You can use our calendar above that will show you availabilities for some of the routes. Once you selected your dates, it will forward you to either BA’s website with your preselected flight dates. In this case, we don’t recommend booking through online travel agencies (OTAs). For the other routes, you can use BA’s best price calendar, linked above for each destination.

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 approximately €20, 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.

Currency

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.
