Oslo - Paris or Madrid

Hi all,

What's the average price or a good price to fly from Oslo to Paris or Oslo to Madrid during the end of October? I would prefer *A.

I will be in EU for the first time and I see prices from Oslo to Paris for ~$170 via Lufthansa. Is this good? or will it be cheaper?

You could try Kayak or ITA Matrix and look at airfare a month at a time to see if it's a good fare. You could also try a low cost carrier (LCC) like Norwegian Air Shuttle.

In Europe you are probably best to stay away from the LLC since they add fees on and if you are not use to them you could up paying signifantlt more than a mainline carrier. I tend to fly mainline carriers Luftsana/Swiss/SAS knowing there will be know 'hidden costs'

Even with the fees for seat selection and baggage check added on, the LCCs are often still much less expensive than a larger carrier. Depends on what's more important to you. Just because you wouldn't fly them doesn't mean you should dissuade the OP from doing so.

ETA: I have flown EasyJet and Vueling and would do so again.
