Even with some budget airlines shuttering, cheap flights to Europe from the US continue to be readily available. In fact, the accessibility of affordable airfares may soon increase with JetBlue prepared to begin flights to London in the near future. 

For the second year in a row, Thrillist asked travel booking site Kayak.com to pull data from its site to shine a light on the cheapest summer destinations in Europe from of every US state. The prices reflect a median price to that location over the course of the summer. (So, yes, you can find cheaper flights from time to time, because this is the median price point.)

The data was pulled from searches on Kayak over the last year for flights between May 24, 2019 and September 2, 2019. States without an international airport like Idaho or Delaware were assigned the nearest international airport by Kayak.

The deals can be seen in the map above or in more detail below. One of the most notable takeaways is that cheap flights to Iceland still reign supreme despite WOW Air closing up shop. In last year's data, Reykjavik was the top destination for 25 of 62 international airports for which Kayak pulled data. This year, it was the top destination for 36 of 64. It helps that Reykjavik is really not that far from the US, but it's also just a cheap destination at the moment, as are other Nordic countries. You'll find Oslo, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Copenhagen all on the list.
