Finnair has off-season discounts for flights from New York City to Stockholm,… (Casper Hedberg / Bloomberg )
Finnair has launched an airfare sale on flights between New York City and Estonia, Sweden, Russia and Lithuania for less than $700 round trip. Los Angeles fliers could use up some air miles or hunt down a cheap L.A.-New York airfare to take advantage of sale prices.
The deal: Prices for economy seats from New York start at $655 to Tallinn, Estonia; $670 to Stockholm; $679 to St. Petersburg, Russia; and $695 to Vilnius, Lithuania.
The sale applies to business class seats too, which cost $2,729 to $2,755, depending on the destination. Reservations must be made at least three days in advance.
When: The offer is good for travel though the end of April and Oct. 1 through the end of the year, based on availability. Prices increase for late spring and summer.
Tested: This is an off-season deal, but the prices are so low it's worth booking a cheap flight to New York. I checked online and found seats available for $680, including tax and fees, for flights from New York to Tallinn on Oct. 7 and returning Oct. 14. (The itinerary I tested happens to go by way of Helsinki, Finland.) Kayak.com shows Finnair as the cheapest airfare by about $300 for those dates.
If you choose to book Finnair from Los Angeles on this deal, expect to pay almost double the price. For example, Los Angeles to Tallinn on the same dates costs $1,245 round-trip.
