The 12 Cheapest European Airports to Fly Into From the United States

As you know, Europe is cheap right now. Like mad cheap. Which is great news for your big summer adventure to stalk the continent's hottest royals. Or visit Lichtenstein.

It got us thinking: are certain European airports consistently cheaper to fly into from the United States than others? To find out, we asked the travel/data experts at both Hopper and Kayak to analyze round-trip flights from the US to Europe over the next three to five months. While, obviously, exact ticket prices depend on where in the US you're flying from, both sites were able to provide fares from a "typical US city" (essentially, an average of all major US airports).

In the end, we combined their data, sorted it from most-to-least expensive, and discovered that (surprise!) Russia is where we should be headed this summer. Or, well, one of these other European airports...
