SWISS has launched a fare sale from the US to their Spanish destinations including Madrid and Barcelona.
The best fare appears to be Boston – Barcelona for only $506. Otherwise ‘Barca’ and Madrid can be reached for between $580 and $630 from LX’s East Coast gateways.
From the Midwest and West Coast, fares range between the mid $600 and mid $800 range.
As far as Italian destinations are concerned, prices to Rome and Venice are about $40-$100 higher than the fares to Spain.
With SWISS’ poorly designed website, it’s nearly impossible to identify the travel windows and terms/conditions for the fares. With some trial and error, I see most of the best fares are available for late May / early June and September-October travel.
