Four years after launching as an exclusively business-class boutique airline between New York and Paris, La Compagnie has announced the launch of a new seasonal route between New York and Nice with the first direct flight scheduled for Sunday, May 5, 2019. Travelers to Nice can now book tickets with a limited-time Discovery Rate of $1,200 round-trip for the first 1,000 passengers.
This announcement comes as the latest in a series of positive developments for the airline, which is awaiting the delivery of its first Airbus A321neo in April 2019. With the arrival of the new plane, La Compagnie will grow its fleet to three aircrafts, further allowing the airline to develop its offer with a new trans-Atlantic flight and direct access to the South of France during prime season.
The new route will operate five times weekly, Wednesday through Sunday, between the months of May and October. Flights out of Newark International Airport will depart at 11:30 p.m. arriving to Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport at 1:50 p.m. the following afternoon. Flights departing Nice will be offered at 6:15 p.m. with a same-day arrival in New York at 10:00 p.m. La Compagnie passengers can also go to Nice on Monday or Tuesday with connections from Paris Orly Airport operated through a special partnership with easyJet.
As with all La Compagnie flights, passengers will be welcomed with lounge and priority access for an exclusive pre-flight experience. Onboard the Boeing 757, guests will experience reclining lie flat beds, amenity kits with Caudalie skincare products, personal iPads, a seasonally curated menu by Michelin-starred chef Christophe Langrée, a selective list of French wines and champagne and artisanal croissants by French bakery, Maison Kayser.
