From there, I selected a nonstop flight departing Newark (EWR) on Jan. 12 and departing from Paris (ORY) on Jan. 17, for just over $1,600 round-trip.

Bottom line

"The City of Light shines year-round, but winter in Paris is particularly magical with holiday markets, festive lights, seasonal cuisine and more," says La Compagnie, and I'd have to agree.

For business-class flights that are normally priced on a good day around $2,000, this is a deal, so be sure to book by Dec. 12.

As of Dec. 10, France is currently open to both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers from the United States, although the latter must have a compelling reason for travel, in addition to a mandatory quarantine. All travelers must show results of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of arrival in France.
