Fare deal. £1,550 London to Rio.

LATAM airlines have an excellent business class fare from London to Rio, and a variety of other destinations in South America running at the moment.

London isn’t normally the best place to start long-haul trips in a premium cabin, for a number of reasons.  Firstly is the the UK Government applies what’s knows as Air Passenger Duty (APD), which adds £150 alone to the cost of a long-haul flight.

Secondly, London is generally seen as a relatively premium market so non-stop flights are generally priced quite highly compared to smaller European cities.

So for UK residents, a deal like this where you don’t have to position somewhere in Europe is both attractive and convenient.

These fares have quite a number of conditions:

  • Need to buy before midnight on 9th July 2017
  • It books into Z class which earns tier points with British Airways and earns at 125% Avios
  • 31 day advance purchase
  • Non-refundable and non changeable
  • Minimum five night stay, or a Saturday night
  • Fares are valid from 4th July to 6th September
    • Except between 20th July to 6th August
  • Must return on or before 6th September

As you can see from the matrix on their website, there’s pretty wide availability.
