Posted May 29th, 2011 - 11:07 am by from Istanbul, Turkey (Permalink)
I'm looking for a cheap flight from istanbul to anywhere in US. Dates are at the last week of july and beginning of august. The final destination can be anywhere in US. Dates are flexible. Is there anyone having any idea, or seen an advertisement?

Your best bet is to make your way to Dusseldorf and fly Air Berlin to Miami. Alternatively, make your way to any of these cities and you'll be covered: Brussels, London, Berlin, Amsterdam.

If you can make your way to Athens you can find flights for around 10-30 euro to Brussels, Belgium.

London - NYC is pretty cheap.

check out skyscanner.com for price ideas. Some airports are more expensive to fly out of than others due to airport taxes.

Check out flights to SFO (san francisco), LAX (Los Angeles), Miami (MIA), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) (right outside Miami), NYC (covers all 3 major airport in and around New York), DCA and IAD (Washington DC).

skyscanner has an option that lets you check flight prices by country as well as ANY destination. So you could try searching for flights from IST to US (code for United States).

I've checked out flights from Istanbul to the US and they're not cheap. That's why I recommend you make your way to Germany, Belgium, Holland, or England.

If you want an idea for cheap flights to and from a particular city, you could try

MIA to EVERYWHERE on Skyscanner.

This will give you a list of all flights from Miami with prices to various destinations around the world. I normally expand my search by year, just to get a rought idea of the cheapest countries that have cheap flights from Miami. Yes, the results you're looking are TO Miami, but just reverse your search and you'll usually find similar prices.
