A family trip to Europe just got much cheaper thanks to this limited time deal where kids fly free on Scandinavian Airlines.
From today, Tuesday, September 17 through Friday, September 27, 2019, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS)will be offering free base airfare for children up to 11 years old. For just the cost of applicable taxes and fees, children traveling with an adult will be able to travel in SAS Go and SAS Plus classes from SAS’ seven US gateways, including Boston, New York, Miami, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles to the Nordic countries of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. Applicable travel dates are from November 1 - December 1, 2019 and from January 8 - March 24, 2020.
Plus, even kids between 12-25 years old can still get a deal thanks to their Youth Ticket exclusive rates.
And, there's even more good news for eco-conscious travelers. Kids will also fly green thanks to the airline's CO2 Youth Offset Program. The airlines estimates the amount of CO2 emissions for each child ticket and puts the equivalent amount of funds towards renewable energy projects. Wondering just what to do now that you've already started planning your Scandinavian family vacation? From museums to theme parks to bustling cities, parents and kids will find plenty to occupy them. Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
