  • If you know the departure airport, you could use google.com/travel/explore – zhantongz Jan 23 at 18:08
  • Hello, it'd be helpful to share why you are looking for something other than kiwi.com since it appears to have the desired functionality. – Carl Jan 24 at 5:36

    adioso.com used to offer very wide searches like this, but unfortunately they seem to have gone out of business. – lambshaanxy Jan 24 at 9:49
  • Kiwi.com in last years is declining in functionality and found that have errors on results. So i search something better – Kodis Jan 24 at 22:33

The website http://matrix.itasoftware.com/ (owned by Google) supports this a bit, but you need to learn how to use it for complicated question like this.
In a nutshell, you enter a city pair from about the middle of your starting area to about the middle of your target area, and then choose to allow 'all airports within x miles' (1000 or whatever you want). In the offered list, you can select all airports you want to include (or simply select all). You can then chose to search over a month, and sort by price.

There are some limitations - your starting airports must be all in one country is the worst one; it limits the usefulness for your case a lot.

For Feb 2021, I found FRA-GRU for 309 Euro as the cheapest (multiple days, for example Feb/10)

  • Good info. For reference kiwi.com finds MAD-SCL for 196 € in that period on a full continent search via an intuitive UI. – Carl Jan 24 at 5:41
  • @Kodis, your question is so wide that it is hard to find even a partial answer. So be thankful for those that try, if you can not be that online, please do not post a reaction at all. – Willeke Jan 25 at 16:28

Which sites exist ?

Quite likely none since it's a non-sensical search. There are 420 major/medium airports in South America and 1026 in Europe, which creates over 42000 possible combinations. I imagine you can hit pretty much all of those with two connections and maybe 25% with a single connection. That's still over 10,000.

It's just not practical to search all of these comprehensively and display them in a way that makes sense.

What would you do with that amount of data anyway? You have to have to some reason for looking and that reason should help constrain the search to something more meaningful. That's where ITA Matrix is probably the best tool for.

Kiwi.com allows you to execute a search like this but I sincerely doubt that they search 42000+ connections. They simply will constrain the search for you by some unknown algorithm or rationale. You are better off constraining the search yourself.

However, the combination might work: Using KIWI to pre-screen options and then refining the with ITA. One word of caution: KIWI offers frequently itineraries that are on two separate tickets and require "self connection". You won't find these on any other website: it's risky business and unless you are an experience traveler and know what you are doing you should NOT book these.

  • If you find something you like on KIWI, search with the combination of airports on other sites, to see whether someone is willing to sell the same connection. – Willeke Jan 24 at 14:36

I found https://panflights.com/en/ Seems to be interesting although not perfect and with all functionalities needed to be a flexible search engine
