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.

Don't worry, if you don't want to take a helicopter ride – and we can't imagine why you wouldn't – tickets to Paris (ORY) are currently as low as $1,400 round-trip on La Compagnie.
