Sale routes

This Valentine’s Day, French business-class airline, La Compagnie, is offering 2-for-1 deals across all three of its routes:

  • Fly from New York City (EWR) to Milan (MXP) for $2,800 round-trip, with two tickets included.
  • Fly from New York City (EWR) to Paris (ORY) and Nice (NCE) for $3,000 round-trip, with two tickets included.

Service from EWR to MXP is a new route for La Compagnie launching on April 15. Its EWR to NCE route resumes service on May 7.

Round-trip tickets for the mentioned routes normally start at around $2,600 per person, so this is really an incredible deal.

“With just 76 full-flat seats in a 2×2 configuration, couples can cozy up and enjoy an intimate and comfortable flight with state-of-the-art entertainment, free Wi-Fi, refreshing amenity kits with Caudalie skincare products, seasonally curated menus by Michelin-starred chefs, plus a selective list of organic wines and champagne,” the airline told TPG.

I spent Valentine’s Day in the City of Light in 2012 with my girlfriends from college while we were studying abroad. I must admit, no Valentine’s Day has compared since.
