There’s a cheap deal on Avianca between Los Angeles (LAX) and San Salvador (SAL), the capital and largest city of El Salvador, in lie-flat business class. Even better, it’s under $1,000 round-trip!

Let’s take a look.

Fare Deal — Details

The flights are operated on Avianca’s Airbus A320-200 aircraft, which offers lie-flat seating for the 5-hour flight. One leg is operated in a 2-2-2 configuration while the other is in a 1-2-1 configuration.

Recently, we reported that Avianca — Colombia’s flag carrier — would bring back business class service on select routes within the Americas, and this route appears to be one of them.

Take a look at dates on Google Flights and then book directly with Avianca for the best deal. You’ll find slightly cheaper prices with other online travel agencies (OTAs), but you should book directly in case your travel plans change.

  • Class: Business Class
  • Route: Los Angeles (LAX) to San Salvador (SAL)
  • Dates: January 2024
  • Rates: As low as $811 round-trip

Bottom Line:

While San Salvador might not be at the top of your travel list, the city has some fantastic (and cheap) points hotel options if you’re doing a mattress run. For instance, the Hyatt Centric San Salvador, a Category 1 hotel, has rates starting at just 3,500 per night (off-peak). You’ll also find affordable points hotels through Hilton, Marriott, and even an InterContinental!

How To Book

There’s solid availability in January, which is perfect if you want to travel soon within the next month.

Once you’ve found travel dates, the next step is to book your flight with a credit card that rewards airfare purchases. Here’s a glance at some of the best travel cards out right now:

Final Thoughts

This is an excellent deal, especially given the lie-flat seating on Avianca’s Airbus A320. You might not have considered San Salvador as a travel destination, but it’s a city with a fantastic food, arts, and culture scene — plus some of the most affordable points hotels in Central America!
