To celebrate summer, all-business-class airline La Compagnie currently has a deal offering a limited number of business-class flights from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Paris or Milan starting at $2,300.

This deal is only available to the first 500 people that book and flights have to be taken in August 2022, so be sure to book ASAP if interested.

While not the absolute cheapest business-class deal we've seen for these routes this year, $2,300 is still a solid deal compared to the other business-class options available for August. If you're looking for a last-minute getaway to Europe this summer, it's worth considering if based in the New York City area or can take an affordable positioning flight.

Airlines: La Compagnie.
Routes: Newark (EWR) to Paris (ORY) and Milan (MXP).
How to book: Directly through the airline's promo page.
Travel dates: August 2022, excluding certain blackout dates.
Book by: July 14, 2022.

Sample flights

There are only two routes available in this deal, with round-trip flights out of EWR starting at $2,300 while they last, specifically:

  • EWR to Paris Orly Airport (ORY).
  • EWR to Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP).

To book this deal, head to the airline's website to book directly and enter your desired route — either EWR to ORY or MXP.

We searched for flights from EWR to ORY to get an idea of availability, looking at travel dates Aug. 10–Aug. 17, 2022.

Be sure to select the “Promo” fare when prompted to make your selection from the available fare types to ensure that you get access to the $2,300 round-trip deal.

Note that promo fares are non-refundable, though all fare types allow ticket changes for free (you'll just pay any fare difference). If you want more flexibility, you can pay more to book a “Smart” fare, which allows you to cancel your flight for $600, or the "Flex" fare which offers free cancelations.

Stanard La Compagnie service includes lie-flat seats in a 2-2 configuration, free Wi-Fi, amenity kits with Caudalie skincare products and seasonally curated menus by Michelin-starred chefs — even on promo fares.

Maximize your purchase

Make sure to use a card such as The Platinum Card® from American Express to earn bonus points on your airfare purchase, for 5x 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. The Citi Premier® Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve are also great cards for booking airfare, earning 3x points per dollar on airfare. The American Express® Gold Card gets you 3x per dollar on airfare that you book directly with the airline. Then we have the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card which earns 2x points per dollar on travel. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.

Bottom line

This is a good deal for business-class travel to Europe this summer since comparable flights from the New York City area over the same time period on other carriers start at $5,300. La Compagnie's $2,300 non-stop round-trip business class offer is going to be hard to beat for last-minute travel this summer, so be sure to book soon if interested.
