Have you ever heard of a stopover on a flight? Stopovers are different from layovers – stopovers can last several days to more than a week instead of just a few hours, and they’re a great way to visit two cities for the price of one.
Many major airlines offer free or inexpensive stops to their main hub city, which means you can spend some time in a major city on your way to your final destination. Finding these stopovers can be a little tricky – while some airlines openly advertise the fact that they offer them, others give you a “multi-city” booking option, and some require you to make a phone call or two.
No matter the process, it’s always worth it to find out if a stopover is an option. Here, our EWR Airport parking company shares some stopover options if you’re traveling to one of these countries:
Qantas and Virgin Australia often allow passengers traveling from the U.S. to stop in Brisbane or Sydney while Air New Zealand offers a stop in Auckland. If you’re taking Hawaiian Airlines to Australia, you can stop in Honolulu.
Many airlines stop in the Middle East on their way from the U.S. to Africa, which means you can stop over in Dubai when you fly Emirates, Abu Dhabi when you fly Ethiad, or Doha when you fly Qatar.
Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and American Airlines all have stopovers in Tokyo while Jet Airways travels to Brussels, Mumbai, and Delhi. Air China stops in Beijing, Cathay Pacific stops in Hong Kong, and EVA and China Airlines both stop in Taipei.
If you’re headed to Europe on American Airlines, British Airways, or Virgin Atlantic, you can make a stop in London. Icelandair makes a stop in Reykjavik and Aer Lingus stops in Dublin.
Both Aviana Costa Rica and LATAM stop over in Lima while LATAM also lets you visit Santiago, Buenos Aires, or San Paulo. If you fly Copa Airlines, you can spend some time in Panama City.
