SWISS Puts Spain And Italy On Sale

SWISS Puts Spain And Italy On Sale

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.
