Winter is coming, so head south… to the beach, in business class.

You haven’t completed your world beach conquest until you’ve landed in Brazil. Sure, you’ll find some pretty impressive stuff all over the world, but it’s not often you find a magnificent city, set amidst colorful hills, with two of the worlds best beaches offered as the centerpiece. Ipanema and the Copacabana must be seen to be truly believed, and with £450 one way business class deals allowing you to use miles the other way home, or £960 round trip – incase you have no miles, now is the time to go. Flat beds to Brazil, anyone?

AZUL is a popular Brazilian airline with great new flat bed business class seats on their long haul flights. These deals offer flat beds in business class on the direct flight from Paris to Sao Paulo, and if you wish to carry on to Rio De Janeiro, you’ll end up in coach for the short 1 hour or less flight to Rio, which goes into Santos Dumont – the cool, airport with impeccable views of the Rio skyline. And for any nerds, saying “errrr I won’t fly them unless I earn a boat load of miles with someone else”, you can earn miles with United or TAP, giving you two strong Star Alliance earning choices. To the best of our knowledge, these deals are only available from Paris, for travel to Sao Paulo or Rio De Janeiro.

We told you winter was coming. You can fend off winter right as it strikes, because these business class deals are available at the lowest prices for travel in November. If you want to fly later in the year, or earlier, you’ll look to pay about £400 more, though you will find options with Swiss and Lufthansa as well at the higher rates.

These deals are awesome because if you only need a one way, you can have it. If you’ve got miles, you can use them going the other way. Of course, if you want to fly round trip business class to South America for £960, that’s pretty great too. These deals can be booked directly on Expedia for the best pricing, with particularly good availability leaving on the 13th or 15th of November. Be sure to enter PAR (for all Paris airports) since these flights leave from the more convenient Orly, and either RIO for (all Rio airports) or Sao Paulo (all) since these flights go into a different airport. If you’re struggling to find dates, you can use Google Flights to help find the prices as well, but Expedia is your best bet.

  1. GSTP, great tip as usual!

    Just for some people to know in advance, the flight is marketed as Azul, but the company doing these flights out of ORY is actually Aigle Azur, which flies from Orly to Viracopos / Campinas airport. This airport is the main Azul hub out of Brazil.
