Airlines Are Offering Tons of Post-election Flight Deals, Starting at $7
Last night, the American people heard the results of the 2016 presidential election. And as the population of Canada began to rise, airfares begin to fall.
Whether you’re celebrating or escaping, there are dozens of flight deals available to help you get pretty much anywhere else in the world.
Fly With AirAsia for $6.85
This Malaysia-based low-cost carrier promised early this morning not to “trump” your getaway plans with a flash sale that expires November 12. While flights primarily originate in Malaysia, you can use these short—and super cheap—flights to explore cities all across Asia, including Bangkok, Hanoi, Hong Kong, and the beautiful island of Phuket.
Travel dates are effective immediately, and will be available until May 25. Fares start at $6.85, or 29 Malaysian Ringgits.
Check Out the European Union
According to the Airfare Spot, it’s not just AirAsia riding the turbulent tide of the election. British Airways, TAP Portugal, and a number of SkyTeam Alliance partners (think: Delta, KLM Royal Dutch, and AirFrance) have all posted a number of extremely affordable flight deals.
From New York City, for example, travelers can fly to Palma De Mallorca, Ibiza, Madrid, or Barcelona, Spain, for as little as $400 round-trip. Flights are also available to Geneva and Rome, though depending on your destination, January may be the earliest departure month.
Boston currently boasts the best flight deal to Europe, with round-trip flights to Madrid hovering around $350 round-trip. Travel dates area available from March until early April. Flight can also be found to Milan, Rome, and Barcelona beginning at $361 round-trip.
And if you’re based in Florida, $420 flights are available as early as December 6 for flights from Miami to Milan, Paris, Madrid, or Barcelona on British Airways.
The Airfare Spot also noted flight deals from Dallas to various Italian cities (Naples, Florence, and Venice included) for as little as $371 round-trip. Flights originating in Philadelphia are starting at $387 to Rome and Barcelona; British Airways flights from Chicago to Paris can be had for $419 round-trip, and Los Angeles-based citizens can make moves for $424 round-trip, with flights available to Barcelona, Rome, Milan, or Venice.
Score a One-way Ticket in Ireland
To be clear, you need to first get yourself to Ireland. But once you’re there, you can score one of 1,000,000 seats with the country’s low-cost carrier, Ryanair, for €9.99—just shy of $11. The dedicated United States Election Special includes one-way flights to Amsterdam, Brussels, Basel, and London.
The sale ends at midnight on November 9, but you could be traveling across Europe as early as next week.
