If you’re a Star Alliance flyer looking to explore a fascinating Middle Eastern country, while enjoying lie flat seats and plenty of miles, this is one of the best deals we’ve seen in a long time. Lufthansa has a business class companion fare, which prices out to just €344 per person round trip for fully flat bed business class to Kuwait or Saudi Arabia.
These kinda deals don’t come around often, so here’s how to get in while the going is good. Oh, and Tel Aviv is also available at the same price and solo travel is fine for that deal…
These flight deals are for travel from Zurich to Kuwait or Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. With the new Saudi e-visa, this is one of the cheapest ways to be amongst the first visitors into the country, and also one of the more comfortable options too. Lufthansa operates an Airbus A330 on both routes, which means you’ll have a wide body aircraft for the mid haul flight between Frankfurt and the Middle East.
This is an incredible price to rack up elite qualifying or status miles with Lufthansa, Swiss, or any Star Alliance mileage program.
The Dates You Can Travel
These flights are valid for Monday through Wednesday departures from October 2019 through July 2020. That’s an extremely wide range of dates for such a staggering deal. A Saturday night stay is the only requirement, so you can do a mid week to end of week trip, or something shorter too. Longer is fine.
It’s absolutely worth finding a friend, colleague or family member, even if they are imaginary, since the price for two combined is far lower than the price of just one person. Yo Yo Ma famously used to book a seat for his cello.
You never know how long a fare like this will last, so if its for you, don’t hesitate. Firm up your dates and book while you can. You can find this fare easily using Google Flights by searching for 2 pax from Zurich to KWI or RUH for Kuwait or Riyadh.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new Saudi Arabia tourism visa you can obtain online, just in case that’s where you’re headed. €375 is absolutely incredible for a business class round trip fare, so book while you can!
HT: YHBU for the great find.
