I just read a recent article in the Wall Street Journal about new sources of cheap air fares to Europe. This summer, the fares to Europe have been very high. In this article, New Sources of Cheap Fares to Europe, the author talks about discount international airlines starting to fly from smaller U.S. airports for much less than the traditional airlines. For example, a flight out of T.F. Green to Frankfurt on Condor airlines costs $700 versus a flight from Boston to Lufthansa at $1743. Business class on these flights can be several thousand dollars less as well. Condor flies out of Portland, Oregon and will soon add flights out of Austin, Texas. If you are planning a trip to Europe this summer, it is worth checking out flights from smaller regional airports for potential savings.
