Savings on Overseas Flights

Several airlines have announced lower prices for flights from North America to Europe and farther afield, provided you book by various dates in January.
Finnair ( has rates as low as $660 from New York to Warsaw round trip for midweek flights up until April 30. New York to Vilnius, Lithuania is priced from $630 under the same conditions, while New York to Helsinki starts at $700. These flights must be booked by January 17.
Finnair flies from Canada to Europe only in summer, but there are also good prices on these flights in you book this month. Toronto to Helsinki flights start at $899 return, provided you book by Jan. 30. I have taken this flight as well as a couple of other Finnair flights and always found the service pleasant and the equipment good.
British Airways ( also has some good deals on travel beyond Britain, provided you book by Jan. 23. An example is New York to Bangalore, India for as little as $981, or Los Angeles to Johannesburg, South Africa starting at $1,258. Similar rates are in effect from Canadian destinations.
Air France ( is offering fares such as $853 return from Houston to Amsterdam, with a 10-day minimum and 30 day maximum stay. Place your order by Jan. 31 to get savings like this.
With fares as low as these, and with global warming, winter and early spring may become the new high season for travel abroad.
