BRUSSELS AIRLINES is holding a 48 hour fare sale for travel from Europe to New York City (JFK) for as low as €499. The fare sale ends at midnight CEST on 18 October so there’s only 1 day left to take advantage of this offer. To take advantage of the special fare, please visit BRUSSELSAIRLINES.COM.

I tried several sample bookings and found plenty of availability from Brussels to JFK for €497, so even a bit better than the advertised rate. Fares from other cities within Europe to New York ranged in the low to mid €500 range and connect through Brussels for a Brussels Airlines flight to New York.

The fare is valid for travel between 5 January and 28 February 2013. A Saturday night stay is required and maximum stay is 90 days. Once booked, the ticket is non-refundable and non-changeable.

Brussels Airlines started service to New York in June and uses the Airbus A330-300 for the route. Though I have yet to fly Brussels Airlines (hoping to change that VERY soon), I have had several readers come back from flying Brussels Airlines telling me that they were very impressed with the aircraft, crew and overall flight experience.
