We love Paris, so I was excited when Norwegian Air announced new direct flights from Paris to the US for only $175 each way. It’s been more than a month since the announcement, but I decided to do a quick search on my phone today to see what I could find.

I didn’t expect to find any of the introductory fares still available, and I didn’t, but I was pleasantly surprised to still find plenty of incredibly cheap fares — like less than $500 roundtrip cheap. The takeaway: You can still find super cheap flights to Paris, you just have to search for the right things.

Here’s how to do it:IMG_1900

1. Put in your airports. You can choose to depart from Los Angeles (LAX), Fort Lauderdale/Miami (FLL), and New York (JFK). You will fly into the main airport in Paris: Charles de Gaulle (CDG).

2. Select “Low Fare Calendar,” to see an easy to navigate calendar with the lowest fares. Also select “direct only” because having to worry about connections is the worst.

3. Compare prices and choose dates. The cheapest dates each month will be in bold. You can quickly flip through the months to find the best deals. Right now the cheapest flights are in fall 2016, which is awesome because Paris is perfect in the fall. Probably my favorite time we visited was in September for a long weekend getaway. It wasn’t as crowded as when we’ve been in the summer, or as cold as the winter. Though really it’s Paris, and honestly we’ve loved it in every season. (Click to enlarge image)

 

4. Check your total and fall in love with the amazing deal you just scored.

5.  Bon Voyage! Have an awesome trip. Don’t forget to check out some of our other Paris posts for other practicalities, plus some excellent off-the-beaten-path ideas that are all free and sure to make your trip an authentic Parisian adventure.
