Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 22, 2013 -- Last minute luxury airfare to Asia and Europe just dropped to incredible levels, reports FlyFirst, a leading premium travel provider. Today, FlyFirst announced the new discounted airfare for last minute travel in business and first class cabins booked by August 26, 2013, as available.
"These new last minute deals on first and business class tickets are available at the perfect time," says Graft. "International travel is escalating and families are searching for deals on summer travel. Offering deals like these on last minute flights is especially helpful for families trying to fit in a trip before most North American kids head back to school."
Travelers heading to Asia at the spur of the moment can expect to pay as little as $3,370 for business class and $4,430 for first class. Regular business class fares to popular Asian destinations can range from $6,980 to as much as $21,000. Ordinary first class rates to Asia vary from $13,800 to about $27,000, thousands of dollars more expensive than the newly released discounts at FlyFirst.
Asia, already a frequent destination for business travelers, is quickly becoming a popular vacation spot for North American pleasure travelers. Japan, Southeast Asian countries such as Myanmar, Cambodia and Lao and South Asia's India and the Maldives all report significant increases in international arrivals at their respective airports, according to the Pacific Asia Travel Association's March 7 report on 2012 travel. "Whether our customers are traveling to Seoul, South Korea, to attend to business interests, or to Thailand to explore inviting beaches and roam historic sites, the new discounts offer new opportunities for travel," says FlyFirst Public Relations Manager Julia Graft.
Last minute European deals are just as significant. While regular business class tickets to Europe hover in the range of $6,000 to $8,000, FlyFirst's new last minute deals offer business class fares as low as $2,840. Similarly, under the new discount sale, first class travelers to Europe can expect fares to come as cheaply as $3,570.
Always a popular business and pleasure destination for Americans and Canadians, Europe is the top destination for U.S. travelers. More than 18 percent of all U.S. international travel was made to Europe, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce Office of Tourism & Travel Industries. The next closest destination was the Caribbean, with 10.6 percent of the market share.
Frankfurt, London, Paris, Barcelona and Amsterdam are all top European destinations for business travelers and vacationers alike. Each city is home to a vibrant business district, operates robust financial centers and offers a large international airport. Each also features stellar landmarks, historic sites and attractions that appeal to visitors from around the world.
Although several airlines announced recent drops in first class and business class ticket prices, some came under fire because the tickets required advance purchase of at least 60 days. That's not the case on the latest round of summer sales at FlyFirst, since the newest discounts are available for last minute luxury flights.
For more than eight years, FlyFirst has offered unparalleled deals on first and business class flights of all kinds, from last minute and one-way trips to multi-city destinations.
