As we move out of January and onward closer to spring, we all know what holiday arrives Feb. 14. Whether you spend it with your significant other or your friends, or try to ignore it completely, nothing quite says “I love you” like flying business class to Paris, Milan or southern France. The all-business-class airline La Compagnie wants to help you get there for less with a limited-time 2-for-1 deal.
Airline: La Compagnie.
Routes: From Newark to Milan, Italy; Paris; and Nice, France. ORY/NCE/MXP.
How to book: Directly with the airline.
Travel dates: Through the end of 2023; some blackout dates apply and are subject to availability and not available on all dates.
Book by: Feb. 14.
Tickets can be changed without a fee, though the least-expensive fare classes are nonrefundable.
This Valentine’s Day, French business-class airline La Compagnie is offering 2-for-1 deals across all three of its routes:
- Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Milan Malpensa Airport (MXP) or Paris-Orly Airport (ORY) from $3,800 round-trip, with two tickets included.
- Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (NCE) for $4,800 round-trip, with two tickets included.
While we have seen cheaper prices on La Compagnie, this deal can make sense for some. We recommend always using Google Flights to compare one “sale” price to other available options to ensure you’re getting the best 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, and I must admit, no Valentine’s Day has compared since.
