Alitalia is currently selling cheap Business Class tickets for flights from Milan to Malta or Tirana, the capital of the Republic of Albania. Also, the other way around is possible, if you happen to live in Malta or Albania. Prices for a return flight to or from Malta start at only €220.
The destinations might not be the most exciting and also the Business Class product will be the European one, missing e.g., lie-flat seats. But this deal is great if you need to collect some miles for your SkyTeam frequent flyer program. For example, a round trip from Milan to Malta will get you 42 XP as a member of Flying Blue.

According to the fare rules, this deal will be around until July 15th. Since it is perfect for a Mileage Run, we can’t be too sure that seats won’t sell out before that date. So you better be fast if you’re interested in booking those flights.
Alitalia has been in financial troubles since quite some time. So they could shut down business at any given time. Since the promoted flights are only a couple of weeks in the future, we think it is pretty safe to book. Still, be sure to use a credit card to purchase your tickets!
The offer is valid for flights commencing on or before October 27th, 2019. Availability is excellent in September and October. But also August shows a couple of flights at the promoted price. Technically you would have to stay at your destination for 3 days before returning to Milan. But the minimum stay requirements include the Saturday night rule. Consequently, you can also fly on a Saturday and return on Sunday, if you wish.
