Austin may be a big city, but even the hustle and bustle of Texas's capital still isn't enough to scratch that wanderlust itch. Fortunately, Austinites will finally be able to travel nonstop to Paris, France in May 2020. That's right, no more jumping through hoops to get across the pond, only jumping for joy because we finally can!
Starting May 6, 2020 Norwegian Airlines will be flying passengers from Austin, Texas to Paris, France nonstop, and they'll be taking off at none other than Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
The cost for these flights are priced as low as $220 for economy one-way tickets and $830 for premium one-way tickets. Having zero stops along the way makes a ticket to Paris worth it at almost any price.
See you in May, Paris! 🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷 #flyAustin https://t.co/fKhp6c3tnM— Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (@Austin-Bergstrom International Airport)1571931130.0
Flights from Austin to Paris will be available on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays between May 6 and September 20 and Fridays and Sundays from September 25 to October 23, all of which begin next year. Make sure you plan ahead, though when planning a trip all the way to Paris that kind of goes without being said.
While in Paris there's absolutely no shame in visiting all of their popular tourist spots. The Eiffel Tower, Musée du Louvre, Tuileries Garden, and Palace of Versailles should all be at the very top of your to-see lists.
Europe is completely unlike the U.S. in that you can travel for an hour and wind up in a completely different part of the country. Don't be afraid to explore, and since the tickets starting at $220 are only one-way, you can come back to the good 'ole U.S. whenever you'd like!
May 2020 feels like forever from now, but it'll be here before we know it. Let the countdown begin.
