The most budget-friendly tickets are offered to the US East Coast. Equally compelling are the flights to San Francisco, California starting at €632. The ticket includes 2x 23 kg checked baggage.
Here are some of the destinations you can fly to with this deal:
In some of the deals from Barcelona, there are cheaper flights offered with LEVEL, but LEVEL is not a member of Oneworld, so you won’t be able to earn miles from these flights.
The tickets are only available at the best price on Finnair’s website. Our travel search initially redirects you to Finnair for the search. From there, you can easily book the deal in premium economy in just a few clicks. There’s availability for January and February 2024.
There are various ways to reach your destination. For example, American Airlines operates non-stop flights from Barcelona to New York and Philadelphia. For San Francisco, we recommend flights via London (or Madrid). Within the USA, there is only one economy class available, and for a 6-hour flight, this is not enjoyable.
There are also direct flights from Barcelona to Boston and New York, operated by LEVEL. These come with various drawbacks (onboard service, miles, …). However, for those simply looking for a more comfortable seat than in Economy, it may still be worth considering.

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.
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.
