What are Open Jaw Flights?

Open jaw flights are two separate flights. The first flight flies from one airport (DESTINATION 1) to another airport (DESTINATION 2) and the second flight flies back to the first airport you flew from (DESTINATION 1) from an entirely different airport (DESTINATION 3).

For example, your first flight flies from London to Miami and your second flight flies from New York back to London. How you travel from Miami to New York is entirely up to you. It can be as direct or indirect as you like and you can visit as many other places as you want along the way.
