The Polish Star Alliance member LOT is currently selling very cheap business tickets to Tokyo-Narita from Madrid and Barcelona. Prices start as low as €1,449, with great availability in April and May, which is a fantastic time to travel to Japan.
Our calendar displays all available dates from both cities for trips of 4-35 days:
You will first fly to Warsaw. From there, you’ll continue to Tokyo-Narita in a Boeing 787. The long-haul flight (with lie-flat seats) is roughly 12 hours long on the outbound, and 14 hours on the inbound. So the business comfort really pays off.
Search & Book
This deal expires on February 29, 2024 (though most availability will probably be gone sooner). The trips have to begin before May 31, 2024 and have to last at least 6 days (or include a Sunday). Furthermore, the tickets have to be booked at least 21 days before departure.
Our calendar displays all available dates, as does Google Flights. You can either pay €1,499 on LOT’s website or save roughly €50 by booking through Skyscanner. Usually, we’d definitely recommend booking on the airline’s website, but I’ve never had problems with LOT tickets booked through online travel agencies, even when there were cancellations during the pandemic. So really both options are reasonable.
The tickets are issued in booking class F. To give you an example, the entire trip from Madrid would get you:

Information & Tips for Tokyo
Tokyo is Japan’s capital and the world’s most populous metropolis as well as one of Japan’s 47 prefectures, consisting of 23 central city wards and multiple cities, towns, and villages west of the city center.
Today, Tokyo offers a great choice of shopping, entertainment, and culture to its visitors. The city’s history can be appreciated in many excellent museums, historic temples, and gardens. Contrary to common perception, Tokyo also offers many attractive green spaces in the city center.
Best Time to Visit
You can visit Tokyo at any time of year because of its moderate weather. However, the best times to visit Tokyo are from September to November and March to May. Summer in Tokyo is hot and humid and should be avoided.
Although winter in Tokyo is cold, it is not too cold for travel.
Three attractions in Tokyo
- Tsukiji Outer Market
A market for fresh seafood. A very vibrant place with lots to see (and smell).
District for electronic and otaku goods. What one might have in mind when thinking of Tokyo. Newest gadgets to be found.
- Koishikawa Korakuen
Landscape garden next to Tokyo Dome. An oasis of calm in the middle of a bustling city.
Airports Narita & Haneda
The Tokyo Metropolitan Region has two international airports: Narita and Haneda. Narita is the airport where most flights from Europe will arrive. Tokyo-Narita is located 55 kilometers east of Tokyo city center and is served by the Narita Express. The journey time between the city center and the airport is approximately one hour.
Only a few international airlines fly to Haneda. From Haneda, which is south of the city center, it is much easier to get to Tokyo city center. The JR Tokyo Monorail System takes you to Hamamatsucho Station, which is not far from Tokyo Station.

Information & Tips for Japan
Japan, the ‘land of the rising sun’, is located in the east of Asia and is one of the most popular travel destinations on the continent. Big cities like Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto convince urban fans while ski fans get their money’s worth in Hokkaido and Tohoku.
Flights to Japan are usually a little more expensive than comparable offers to other destinations in Asia, but there are exceptions, and you can sometimes find bargains.
Best travel time
Since the country consists of many climatic zones it is hard to name a perfect time for travelling to Japan. However, summer should usually be avoided, as June is dominated by the rainy season and July and August offer sweltering temperatures with high humidity.
Most European citizens do not need a visa to enter Japan for a stay of up to 180 days if they do not want to work, study or train. Travelers that arrive under these conditions without a visa will be granted a residence permit as a “Temporary Visitor” for an initial period of 90 days upon entering the country at the airport.
