Star Alliance member Lufthansa is extending its sale from France by a handful of African destinations. Short haul destinations like Algiers start at €99 (without checked bags) and long haul destinations like Johannesburg start at €381 (including checked bags). These fares vary by just a few Euros from four different French airports.

Flights from Strasbourg tend to be cheapest, as they feature a bus ride between Strasbourg and Frankfurt instead of a flight on either the in or the outbound leg. Prices from Lyon, Nice & Paris are usually €10-€20 more expensive than listed above.

For these flights, checked in bags come at an additional cost of €40 on

Strasbourg to Algiers as cheap as €99.
