This is the travel experience on La Compagnie, a new airline that operates five weekly flights between Newark Liberty and Charles de Gaulle.
The best part: Ticket prices are wonderfully affordable. For a limited time, you can grab last-minute winter tickets on the all-business-class carrier for $1,400 round-trip. Tickets are still available as of today, Tuesday, January 13.
Through the end of the month, La Compagnie is selling January and February flights from Newark to Paris for $1,400 round-trip, including all taxes and fees. The price also covers two checked bags per person. This deal is valid for travel through February 28.
I’m pretty excited about this offer because it turns the tables on the typical, torturous cattle-car airline experience that the 99 percent endures. Sure, you can get across the pond for way less than $1,000 this winter on a coach-class fare from a major carrier. But if you haven’t experienced upper-class international flying before, here’s your chance to check it out at a very reasonable price.
Government officials advise travelers to remain vigilant when traveling to France, in light of the recent terrorist attacks in and around Paris. But France is open for business. The France tourism board is encouraging people to visit in an attempt to show solidarity and support. A significant part of the country’s economy depends on tourism.
If you go, expect to see heightened security in Paris, especially at major attractions, airports and border crossings.
