To search any of the included flights, start by searching your origin and destination city via Google Flights, as shown below with this round-trip flight in late October from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Bogata’s El Dorado International Airport (BOG) for $633 on American Airlines.

In this deal, you’ll find fares for business class, the offerings of which vary by airline. For example, this class on American Airlines includes premium seating, priority boarding, free changes, seat selection and carry-on and checked luggage (up to one and two bags, respectively).

Although the fares in this deal vary by route, this one specifically is nearly 70% off its usual price tag of $2,000. In fact, the other routes included in this deal are all usually $2,000 for a business-class ticket, which makes the discounted prices in the $500, $600 and $700 range a pretty stellar deal.

Maximize your purchase

Don’t forget to use a card that earns bonus points on airfare purchases, such as The Platinum Card® from American Express (5 points per dollar on airfare booked directly with the airline or through American Express Travel, on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year), Citi Prestige® Card (5 points per dollar on airfare), Citi Premier® Card, Chase Sapphire Reserve (3 points per dollar on airfare), American Express® Gold Card (3 points per dollar on airfare when booked directly with the airline or through Amex Travel) or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card (2 points per dollar on travel). Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.

Bottom line

Colombia is a spectacular country with everything from beaches to jungles to thriving cities to explore. The U.S. dollar is strong right now, too, which makes it a good deal once you’re on the ground. These flight prices can’t be beaten. Based on a test search for this story, prices have already begun creeping up, likely because it’s an uncommon price point for business-class fares. That means you should book ASAP so you don’t miss out.
