A massive European airfare war is waging right now, forcing major airlines like American, Delta, United, Swiss Air, KLM, and Air France to drop prices.

We’ve seen cheap peak summer tickets to Sweden, a flurry of affordable flights to cities across Germany and France, and unbeatable prices on trips to Amsterdam.

Today, Scott’s Cheap Flights and Thrifty Traveler reported that travelers can also purchase round-trip flights to Barcelona, Madrid, and Málaga in the mid-$300s.

Currently, the best deal is available to Madrid from Fort Lauderdale, with tickets starting at $348 round-trip in May.

But travelers can also find flights to Barcelona for $380 round-trip from the New York City area; for $396 from Charlotte, North Carolina; and for $379 from Dallas to Madrid.  

Travelers interested in flying to Spain this summer (the best deals are generally popping up in May, June, and August) should use Google Flights to search for deals from their home city to multiple airports at once.

For those who would prefer to spend summer exploring another European destination, Ireland, England, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland are also deeply discounted. And according to Thrifty Traveler Premium, more than 30 U.S. departure cities are being included in the sale.
