Whether you’re looking for an extravagant, last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for your partner or just planning your year of travel, the Emirates Limited Time Companion Sale is worth checking out. Until February 16 (be sure to book by 11:59 p.m. EST), special fares on one of the most luxurious international airlines include round-trip flight deals for two people starting under 1,000. $. Halve that in half and you get the same price as a US cross-border flight to travel to places like Milan, Athens, Dubai, Bangkok, Bali, and Johannesburg.

Travel period depends on itinerary, but most city pairs can be booked between February 18 and November 15, 2020. Please note that there are weekend surcharges for economy class flights booked on Friday, Saturday or Sunday in both directions. As for where the pairs can fly, the cheapest routes are from New York (JFK) to Milan and Athens, both under $ 900 round trip for two. Flight deals for two in the $ 1,500 to $ 1,900 range are available from Fort Lauderdale to Dubai, Boston to Bangkok, Chicago to Bali, and San Francisco to Cape Town. Although these base fares are for economy seats, Emirates is known for its legroom, generous meal service and free drinks (cocktails included) and plenty of inflight entertainment options, even in its economy class.

For those who are avid business class travelers, there are also plenty of great deals to be had. Tickets for two from New York to Milan cost less than $ 6,000; from Chicago to the Maldives, a long-haul flight of over 25 hours, they start at $ 10,498.

Better yet, groups can also claim offers. Although space and availability are limited on the discount itineraries, travel can be booked for anywhere between two and eight passengers traveling together at a time, meaning those planning trips with family or gatherings of friends can also enjoy the spirit of Valentine’s Day. Just note that changes and cancellations must take place for all passengers on the itinerary at the same time and the trip must be completed together. So now is not the time to invite fluffy travel companions.
