It’s rare to see low business class fares originating from Washington D.C. area. If seeing Machu Picchu has been on your bucket list for a while, I’d say this is the perfect opportunity to do it.
You can fly comfortably in Business Class between January and May 2020 on Avianca for as low as $900s round-trip. The fares are available almost every day, including holidays like Martin Luther King and Memorial Day weekends. Also, one of the reasons I think this fare is attractive is because you don’t have to purchase a separate ticket or make other travel arrangements from Lima to Cusco because it’s all included in the itinerary.
Fare: Starting at $900s
Origin Cities: Washington Dulles (IAD)
Destination Cities: Cusco (CUZ)
Cabin: Business Class
Dates: Almost every day from January until May (Summer) 2020
How to Find
You can search on Google Flights. Just enter the origin of Washington Dulles (IAD) and the destinations Cusco (CUZ). You should be able to see good options. You can even add a free stopover in Bogota or Lima by playing around with the multi-city feature.
How to Book
Once you find your desired travel date, you can typically book it directly on Avianca’ website, which I highly recommend. Alternatively, you can also book it through Online Travel Agents (OTAs), which usually gives you a 24-hour free cancelation should you change your mind.
Where to Credit
It’s interesting to note that the itinerary is booked into A and D fare buckets, so your mileage earning may vary depending on your frequent flyer program you are crediting it. You can find the full chart on Where to Credit.
Thoughts and Suggestions
It’s rare to see low business class fares originating from Washington D.C., especially to South America. The economy class fare for the same route costs around $600s, so the business class fare is marginally more expensive. If you are looking for a quick getaway to South America, or simply wanted to check off your bucket list, this is an excellent opportunity. Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
