Seattle to Zurich, Switzerland - $396 CAD roundtrip including taxes | peak summer and Christmas flights

Zurich, Switzerland

The Star Alliance has dropped the price of their flights from Seattle to Zurich, Switzerland down to $396 CAD roundtrip including taxes for travel in the peak summer travel season (August 2018).

Some of the overseas legs are operated by Lufthansa. Some are operated by SWISS. Some are operated by Air Canada. Some are operated by United Airlines. Try to choose flights with the first 3 if you can.

There are also some dates around Christmas and New Year's Eve (2017-2018) that are cheap.



Availability for travel

December 2017 (around Christmas and New Year's Eve)

August 2018

How to find and book this deal

1. Try starting with a Google Flights search like this one...

Google Flights: Seattle to Zurich, Switzerland

2. Click on the departure date box to open up the calendar view and look for the cheaper date combinations. Look for the dates that are in the $400s and $500s roundtrip.

From Google Flights you can click through to the airline's website to book these.

NOTE: The cheaper dates around Christmas and New Year's Eve aren't showing up on Google Flights. See below.


4. Or, if you want to book them for quite a bit less ...

Go to Momondo

Search for a flight from Seattle to Zurich, Switzerland (ZRH).

Use the same dates you found on Google Flights.

For the Christmas and New Year's Eve dates, try...

Dec 25 to Jan 8, 9, 10 -- $409 CAD roundtrip
Dec 28 to Jan 8, 9, 10, 11 -- $409 CAD roundtrip
Dec 29 to Jan 10 -- $409 CAD roundtrip


From the Momondo search results, the booking site that is usually showing these for a low price is the low quality booking site TravelMerry.

TIP #1: Look for the flights where the overseas legs are operated by Lufthansa or Swiss or Air Canada (better than United Airlines). Usually you can get a flight with one of these high quality airlines in at least one direction.

TIP #2: Once your Momondo search completes, try sliding the Max Flight Duration slider on the left down to around 36, to filter out really long flights.

IMPORTANT: Many of the booking sites showing these fares are in $USD (including TravelMerry) - so watch out for that.
