Flying cargo class to Italy would be worth it, but this is legitimately nice.

We could waste time selling you on the merits of a trip to Italy, but that would truly be a waste of time. You already know Italy is gorgeous, you know about the history, the fashion, the food and dare we say, the wine? Milan is the perfect place to start an Italy trip, with easy access to the fashion capital of the world, but also nearby gorgeous country regions. Emirates offers one of the roomiest, best economy cabins in the game, and they’re back with $499 round trip flights from New York to Milan and $599 for Athens.

The Milan Deals

Emirates fly a spacious, quiet and downright comfortable A380 between New York’s JFK Airport and Milan, Italy. The airline has just released a sale with $499 round trip flights for fall and winter travel, helping you beat the crowds and save money at the same time. And yes, Italy is lovely in the fall. If Greece is more your speed, there are $599 round trip flights from Newark.

The Dates

These deals are widely available fromΒ September 17th, 2018 through December 18th, 2018, and then again from December 26th, 2018 through April 15th, 2019. If you can make a trip within these dates work, you’ve got yourself a deal. Just be sure to book by June 8th, when these deals expire at midnight EST. You must stay a minimum of 4 days, or over a Sunday – either works.

How To Book

These deals are easy to book! Emirates has both deals loaded onto their New York Sale page, so just jet over there (here) to get booking. Not every single date will be available, but these prices are easy to find on the Emirates website. Once in Italy, it’s extremely easy to train, plane or drive to all the destinations on your bucket list, like the truly incredible Lake Como. Here’s a side by side comparison of Emirates economy versus other top airlines, just in case you’re not sold!
