For an intrepid traveler, Colombia has it all.
Value, food, jungles, beaches, coffee and culture worth diving into. It’s not nearly as far away as people often think, just some 5 to 6 hours from most US gateways, but it’s still 5+ hours on a plane. What if you could turn that into a selling point of the experience though, with champagne and flat beds the whole way? Actually, you can.
Business Class To Colombia
Colombia is open to international travel, with the exception of arrivals from Brazil or the United Kingdom. All you need is to fill out a quick form, and submit a negative PCR test result within 96 hours of departure. This means you could head for this stunning destination as soon as tomorrow.
As an ever buzzing destination and popular travel option given the (relatively) easy entry, airlines are competing to win the lions share of passengers, and right now that means you can fly business class in all the comfort for less than most people pay for basic economy in the back. You can also earn a bunch of miles too.
Delta has round trip business class from New York to Bogota with fully flat beds for just $420. Ok, it’s actually $418, but $420 sounds better. Flights from Boston via New York are available for just around $100 more.
If your budget extends a bit further, there are still fantastic deals from cities like Los Angeles, Atlanta and Nashville where American Airlines also has flat bed business class between $700-$800 with 787 Dreamliner flights to Medellin or Bogota, and Delta too.
Miami is always available for less, and flat beds are available from $300. Miami aside, if you have any miles to your name, or can find a cheap flight, the savvy play is getting to New York where $418 round trip secures Delta One flat beds and a direct flight that’s long enough to enjoy, at 6 hours.
The Dates You Can Travel
If you want to travel this spring or summer, you’re looking at around $70 more per person. Those $418 Delta flights are in the $490’s, and American is at a similar level.
Fall and autumn offer super availability at the lower prices starting in September and thru November. A very welcome feature of these deals is that there’s no minimum stay requirement, so even short trips are totally doable.
