A few weeks ago we saw Bay Area to London roundtrip fares plummet to under $500 – an astounding deal. Now, with competition heating up, those cheap fares are back… and available from ALL three airports: SFO, San Jose and Oakland! And on all airlines serving the route: British Airways, Norwegian, Virgin Atlantic and United.
In these heady days, we now have up to NINE roundtrips every day between the Bay Area and London (Gatwick and Heathrow).
- One at San Jose SJC (British Airways)
- Two at Oakland OAK (British Airways and Norwegian)
- Six at San Francisco SFO (British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, United)
With competition like that, I bet we’ll see cheap fares for at least the rest of this year.
What is great about these deals is that they are currently available all the way through mid-May— which means you can fly to London for Spring Break if you fancy that! ‘Tis lovely in the spring!
After May, fares creep up into the $600 round trip range, but even that is a great deal when you consider it’s available during peak summer travel season June-August) when fares normally rise to near $1,800 round trip.
Find these deals on Google Flights. NOTE: If flights are not found on Google flights, try BritishAirways.com, NorwegianAir.com, United.com or VirginAtlantic.com, all of which are still showing these fares as of Noon Thursday Feb 2.
