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.

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.

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.

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.
