25 Super Cheap Flights Departing SFO in the Next Three Months

By

The weeks leading up to summer are notorious for inciting deep wanderlust among us—you know that feeling of feverishly packing a weekend duffel and making a beeline for SFO, where your wildly expensive flight awaits to take you to a stretch of white sand beach somewhere so you might forget about it all.

Looking to fly to New York City or even Beijing for under $500? Take advantage of the seasonal pre-summer drop in airfare, just before rates climb back up in late-May.


Look out for these cheap, roundtrip domestic flights leaving SFO:

Las Vegas for $88 (Depart April 4th via Virgin Airlines, return April 10th or 11th)

Portland for $207 (Depart April 11th via Alaska or Virgin Airlines, return April 17th)

Seattle for $117 (Depart April 11th via Delta, Alaska, or Virgin Airlines, return April 17th)

Chicago for $205 (Depart April 21st via United Airlines, return 24th, 25th, or 28th)

Dallas for $141 (Depart April 21st via American Airlines, return April 24th)

Austin for $178 (Depart April 4th via Frontier Airlines, return April 10th)

Washington D.C. for $260 (Depart April 11th via Frontier Airlines, return April 17th or 18th)

Miami for $204 (Depart April 11th via Frontier Airlines, return April 17th)

Pro Tip: If you come across deals or discounts that sound almost too good to be true, they probably are. Budget airlines such as Spirit usually offer the cheapest face-value tickets available, but at a cost. (You can end-up paying as much as a $100 per carry-on, each way.) Triple-check the fine print—seating assignments, carry on policies, pricing, etc.—before finalizing your booking.

(Plus, you can fall straight to sleep in one country, and literally wake up eight hours later in another.)
