Fly Business to France and Take a Helicopter to Monaco for $1,600 Round-Trip
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
La Compagnie, the French boutique airline, is one we're fond of. With an all-business class cabin, lie-flat seats, nonstop service to Paris (ORY) and Nice (NCE) and frequent sales (often under $1,500 round-trip), it's hard to hate the airline.
Now, the airline is giving us an even better reason to fly with them.
The carrier is running a sale where you can book flights from Newark (EWR) to Nice (NCE) — but that's not all. After arriving in Nice, you can then take a quick helicopter ride from the airport straight to Monaco. Best of all, the seven-minute ride is bundled in your fare.
Limited dates are available, but it appears the cheapest fares are in late September through mid-October, as first reported by Premium Flights.
