Summer Europe Fare – Delta / Alitalia – $880: New York – Milan, Italy. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

The number one request we receive — deals for Summer travel to Europe. There are not that many opportunities left for under $1,000 roundtrip tickets from the US to Europe. Milan continues to be bright spot with the intense competition between Alitalia, American, Delta, Emirates and United.

Delta and Alitalia still has some $880 fares to Milan for nonstop (limited) and some with connections for $901. The best part is that its available for July and August travel. Obviously, these are over our 6 cents per mile criterion.
