My favorite way to fly to Europe on miles is a great deal offered by Aer Lingus that lets you fly to Dublin for 26,000 miles per person round-trip plus fuel surcharges and taxes from certain major US cities.
To take advantage of this deal, you need to fly during Aer Lingus’ “off-peak” dates, which run two-thirds of the year.
Now available is the Aer Lingus Calendar for 2021 that shows the airline’s “peak” and “off-peak” dates, so you, too, can take advantage of this fabulous deal!
To take advantage, you’ll need to fly from one of several major U.S. cities like Chicago or New York City directly to Dublin or Shannon, Ireland.
From there, you can fly to other cities in Europe by using Avios (Aer Lingus & British Airways’ miles currency) to book more flights on Aer Lingus or pay to fly a cheap airline like Ryanair.

Here are Aer Lingus’ OFF-PEAK dates for 2021:
- Jan. 7-March 25
- April 12-June 11
- Sept. 6-Dec. 15
We like to fly in late May as soon as the kids are out of school, returning mid-June.
