It’s great to see some excellent value business class fares from Washington, D.C. to Europe for once, rather than just deals from New York!

You can thank Portuguese flag carrier TAP Air Portugal for this bunch of tempting tickets to some of Europe’s best and most exciting cities, such as Amsterdam (AMS), Berlin (BER), Geneva (GVA), London (LGW), and Paris (ORY).

Tempted? Us, too. Here are the details of TAP’s business class fares to Europe starting at just $1,879!

Fare Deal — Details

TAP Air Portugal operates its state-of-the-art Airbus A321LR NEO jets on the long-haul route between Washington D.C. and Lisbon (LIS). From there, you’ll connect onto a short-haul hop to your final destination.

The narrow-body jets feature lie-flat seats in a staggered 2-2, 1-1 configuration. You’ll want to aim for the 1-1-configured rows, which boast the coveted “throne seat” for optimum privacy.

  • Class: Business
  • Routes: Washington-Dulles (IAD) to Amsterdam (AMS), Berlin (BER), Geneva (GVA), London (LGW), and Paris (ORY), via Lisbon (LIS)
  • Dates: October through December 2023
  • Fares: From $1,879 round-trip

However, note that some of the return flights include an overnight in Lisbon. While accommodation is not included in the fare, it’s the perfect chance to soak up the best of Portuguese culture and cuisine in the country’s capital.

As TAP is a member of the Star Alliance, you’ll also be able to add your United MileagePlus or other Star Alliance frequent flyer number so you won’t miss out on earning miles for the trip.

Example Deals

The best way to find dates that suit you is by using Google Flights and narrowing down the search by selecting TAP as the airline from the ‘airline’ tab. We’ll show you the prices when booking directly through TAP Air Portugal’s website.

The destination showing the cheapest fares is London at $1,892.

Best Ways to Book

When booking a cash ticket, it’s always a good idea to use a travel rewards credit card that will compensate you for booking flights.

For example, The Platinum Card® from American Express will earn you 5x points on flights when booked through the Amex Travel portal or directly with the airline (up to $500,000 per year; then 1x points).

Hot Tip:

Booking through an online travel agency (OTA) such as Kayak or Expedia can potentially save you a few dollars, as noted above. However, it’s worth remembering that if you need to make changes or cancellations, the headache that can often come with dealing with an OTA can make the money you saved seem insignificant.

Final Thoughts

This deal is the perfect combination of great value fares, a solid business class product, and exciting destinations.

The only thing left to do is decide which destination…

How and where can I book this deal? I went directly to the TAP Air Portugal and it does not have the “business class” option.

Hi Peter. I just went to Google Flights and typed in one of the examples included in the article, the Washington DC to London example to be exact. Once I selected the flights I wanted, there was a link at the bottom that took me to TAP Air Portugal to book the flight. On the TAP Portugal booking site, the “Executive” option is business class.
