Flights leave from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) and land at Paris-Orly Airport (ORY).
Most of the flights in the $360 to $390 range include a layover. The below flight has a short layover in Lisbon each way.
TAP allows passengers on this basic ticket to bring one free carry-on bag; travelers can check a bag for $85.
If you’d rather fly from JFK or land at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), tickets will be a tad more expensive.
You could land at CDG and spend Valentine’s Day in romantic Paris for $462 with this mixed United and Air Canada itinerary.
These prices are for basic economy and include one free carry-on. Any reservation changes or seat changes will come with a fee.
Your first checked bag will cost an extra $75, and your second checked bag will cost $100.
