$408+ One Ways from Oslo and Copenhagen in Business Class

TAP Portugal is offering Business Class fares between:

  • Oslo and Boston or Newark for $408 one way
  • Copenhagen and New York for $611 one way
  • Copenhagen and Miami for $625 one way

All flights I see have an overnight connection in Lisbon.

Some options have a layover of almost 24 hours, like the flight below, which might be more desirable if you wish to enjoy Lisbon.

The easiest way to see the cheap fares is on Google Flights. Available departure dates for the cheap flights span from September through the end of the schedule.

I brought up the following calendar of cheap fares between Oslo and Boston on Google Flights by clicking the Calendar tab.

You can’t book on Google Flights, but you can find the same prices on TAP’s website.

This is a great opportunity to fly cheaply home from Europe.

Why Norway?

I’m headed there myself in July. The natural landscape looks breathtaking. Check out where I’m headed, the Lofoten archipelago…

Why Copenhagen?

Extremely picturesque architecture and boats. Palaces. Avant-garde…everything? Everyone I met from Denmark is inherently cool.

Mileage Earning

Here’s how the process of crediting to a partner works.

Assuming you have no status, credited to United, and took the flight from Oslo to Boston (w/connection in Lisbon), you’ll earn 125% of the miles flown, or 6,142 redeemable miles.

You’ll also earn 1 Elite Qualifying Segment, $116 Elite Qualifying Dollars (ticket price less government imposed taxes and fees, which I found on ITA Matrix), and 4,914 Elite Qualifying Miles as that is the distance between Oslo > Lisbon > Boston.

If we’re strictly speaking redeemable miles, you can earn a higher percentage of the distance flown if you credit to Air Canada or Lufthansa (200%, so the Oslo to Boston flight would earn 9,828 redeemable miles).

I found the fare class for this ticket on ITA Matrix.

Baggage Allowance

You get a free personal item, free carry on, and two free checked bags up to 70 pounds each included in the ticket price.
