Bolivia: €1,213 Lufthansa & Eurowings Discover Business Class From Spain

Lufthansa Business Class Sitz A340

Star Alliance member Lufthansa currently sells business class tickets to major Bolivian city Santa Cruz de la Sierra at a discounted price. With two stops (one in Europe, one in Latin America), you can reach the city with departure from Barcelona or Madrid for as little as €1,213.

While this is a great price, this deal comes with some minor catches. For example, most flights within Latin America are usually ticketed in economy class.

Info

Fully vaccinated travellers may enter Bolivia without a test or quarantine. Unvaccinated passengers must present either an antigen or PCR test. If it’s negative, it increases your chances to travel drastically.

The tickets can be rebooked without having to pay a rebooking fee. In addition to the travel dates, the route can also be changed. However, you always have to pay the difference between the old and the new ticket price. Alternatively, there is the Business Basic Plus fare for a surcharge of €100 (cancellation possible for a €250 fee) or the Business Flex fare (free cancellation) for a €180 surcharge in each direction.

According to Lufthansa’s best price search, low prices can be found from September 2022 to April 2023. You can simply use the following form to search for the flights directly on Lufthansa’s website:

According to Lufthansa’s best price search, there are also availabilities at the same price to La Paz in March and April 2023.

After getting to Frankfurt or Zurich in European Business Class, there are usually four options across the Atlantic:

  • Frankfurt – Bogotá (Lufthansa, Airbus A340-300)
  • Frankfurt – Buenos Aires (Lufthansa, Boeing 747-800I)
  • Frankfurt – Panama (Eurowings Discover, Airbus A330-200)
  • Zurich – São Paulo (Swiss, Boeing 777)

From Panama City, Copa Airlines will fly you to Santa Cruz in a Boeing 737 with recliner seats in business class. All other options are economy services by either Avianca (from Bogota) or Boliviana de Aviacion (BoA – from Sao Paulo or Buenos Aires).

Search & Book

No expiration date is mentioned for this deal in the fare rules, but it probably won’t last forever. We were able to find available dates between September 2022 and April 2023.

Stopovers are unfortunately not allowed. The minimum stay requirement is 10 days. You can stay at your destination for up to 12 months, but this is limited by entry regulations for Bolivia and availability.

Finding availabilities for these flights is a real challenge: You can try your luck with Google Flights (instructions). However, not all connections shown there can actually be booked – at least not online. It may be best to use our search form to directly look for available dates on Lufthansa’s website, using the links above.
