Budget Travel - one way travel from western europe to the us
Apr 3, 11, 11:26 pm
i am trying to find out which airlines offer inexpensive one way flights from western europe (preferrably germany) to the us. so far i only found air berlin (around 400 dollars total for some dates). are there any other in this price range?
If you aren't a US citizen or don't have a Green Card then a one way flight could be problematical as you may need to apply for a visa

Pretty much all western European countries are exempt from visas to the US.
The one way ticket could be a problem though ...
If arriving by air or sea, they are traveling on an approved carrier (See the approved carriers list) and have a return trip ticket to any foreign destination;
Most do not offer cheap one way tickets.

i am aware of those passport/visa requirements. this would be a flight back to the us. several airlines offer one way tickets to the us for less than 500 for certain dates. i am also trying to find a round trip ticket with the right itinerary but have not had much luck so far. air berlin seems one of the better options.

Iceland Express have one way fares and fly from Berlin, 'Frankfurt' Hahn and Friedrichshafen (amongst other places in Europe) via Reykjavik to New York and Orlando - you'd need to check their schedule as there aren't flights every day (with the exception of London).

Aer Lingus offers reasonable oneway fares, and as a result most of the major/legacy airlines offer cheap oneway fares from Dublin to major US cities. Dublin can of course be cheaply reached by Ryanair. Oneway fares originating in London are also pretty reasonable these days, especially on Kuwait Airways but also others (do a Kayak search). LHR/LGW are usually not quite as cheap to reach from elsewhere in Europe as Dublin though.
Condor (http://www.condor.com/us/index.jsp) from FRA.

What fares have you found for those airlines? Condor one way seemed very expensive.
