What’s the flight deal with Finnair?
Finnair currently has cheap flight offers between the US and Europe, including New York to St Petersburg, between August 16th and December 14th 2015. The minimum stay is 7 days and travel is only permitted on Sundays through Thursdays.
We found a round-trip flight for just $582.32 from JFK to LED, traveling September 4th to 21st:
The great thing about this deal is that it includes a free stopover, but only if you book by phone – US customers can contact Finnair on +1 800 950 5000. However, despite stating that the stopover is free, Finnair also says that a telephone booking is subject to a service charge.
There are some slightly cheaper fares from New York to St Petersburg this September, like $539 return with Alitalia or $549 with Air France:
So why book the flight deal with Finnair instead?
As well as the free stopover, you’ll get to experience the 2015 Best Airline in Northern Europe, as voted by Skytrax six years in a row.
