Norwegian Air has had a bunch of cheap fares to Europe in 2016, but not many of those have been from the West Coast.
Via The Flight Deal, I learned that they’re currently offering $240 round-trip tickets on their new Oakland-Stockholm route. They’re recommending ticketing in Swedish Krone to save $30, so use a credit card that doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees.
Stockholm is a beautiful city. I enjoyed a few days there in the colder part of the year and still found it a wonderful place to walk around. I stayed at the Sheraton Stockholm. It’s located right near the main train station and easy walking distance to a number of inviting areas, like Gamla Stan. It’s a solid chain hotel option if you’re looking for one.
Norwegian Air charges a lot of fees. In order to keep your trip cheap, make sure you read through all the details beforehand.
I flew Norwegian last year on a 5-hour flight. It really wasn’t that bad. I’m not the tallest guy in the world (5’9″, though the media guide lists me at 6 foot), but I had decent legroom.
Now, the Oakland-Stockholm flights will be on a 787, which means less wear and tear on your body from better cabin pressurization. I would expect that the legroom would still be similar.
Act Quickly If You’re Thinking About Europe
I think these fares are lower than the rates they launched the route with, so I don’t believe they’ll last very long. Remember you have 24 hours to cancel the flights with no penalty since they originate in the US.
Stockholm is an easy jumping off point to other places in Europe. There are tons of reasonably priced flights to plenty of places if you’re not in the mood to spend time in Stockholm.
