La Compagnie Launches New Flights to London

The French airline expands its offerings to London.

Good news for those with transatlantic connections: La Compagnie, the nine-month-old, business class–only airline that introduced a new standard of affordable luxury last year, just added London to its repertoire. 

We tested out the second-ever run last week, and after dining on smoked salmon, watching Goldfinger on the provided Samsung Galaxy Pro tablet (coincidentally, our flight number was 007), and relaxing with the flatbed seat’s built-in massage feature, we slept through the rest of the seven-hour journey—surely a testament to the comfort of the trip.

The new route, which joins Paris as the company’s second destination to and from Newark Airport, is currently offered four times a week; service is expected to expand to six flights weekly by June. While business-class amenities are provided to all travelers, tickets are available in three tiers: Full Flex, Semi-Flex, and Best-Buy (from $1,948 round-trip). For those planning summer travel, don’t hesitate: Book your trip before May 31 for a special “Summer Duo” fare that starts at $3,090 round-trip for two passengers.
