Bostonians looking for great deals on flights to Europe may get lucky with a sale, but these are always the 10 cheapest flights from Boston to Europe.

Hopper Editors - Oct. 26, 2017

It's no secret that Boston's Logan International has long been a gateway to North America for travelers from Europe, who've capitalized on some of the cheapest transatlantic fares going to make their jaunts across the pond. What's often forgotten though, is that the benefits work two ways, which means New England locals can reap the rewards too. In fact, Boston is home to some of the best flight deals to Europe on the continent, with some routes going for as little as $500 return!

Using the huge amounts of flight data that we collect here at Hopper, we have identified the 10 cheapest places Bostonians can fly to in Europe, on average. That means prices to the following destinations will be close to the prices mentioned here throughout the year and, though the occasional fare sale will pop up, typically the cheapest flights from Boston to Europe will be to one of the following 10 destinations.

The top three reasons to visit Copenhagen:

  • The Brunches: Brunch is big in Copenhagen and becomes nothing short of ritual during the summer months, when locals head out to devour succulent plates of smorrebrod sandwiches and smoked salmon to cure their hangovers from the night before.
  • The House Parties: With drink prices notoriously high and the best clubs only finding their momentum in the early hours, Copenhagen locals have developed a penchant for the pre-drinking party, when friends gather to gurgle vodka and share stories before the night begins in earnest.

The country's flag carrier, Turkish Airlines, offers fliers from Boston the only direct route between the two cities, but Air Canada, interestingly enough, often runs fare sales on the route.

As you fly into Reykjavik on one of Icelandair's super-cheap direct connections from Boston this year, don't let the quaint timber homes and pious cathedral towers of this town fool you, because beneath the surface its nightlife is more like the bubbling and brooding metamorphic volcanoes that loom in the distance — we promise!

Once again it's Portugal's Ponta Delgada that takes the biscuit as the cheapest European destination for fliers out of Boston, with round trip prices on the route from Boston coming in at just $434 on average. It's hardly surprising either, given the city's unique location on the edges of the Volcanic Azores, rising sternly from the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
