The Lufthansa Group has started a new companion sale this week. You know the drill: If you book for at least two passengers, you’ll get heavily discounted tickets to worldwide destinations.
This time, you can fly with Lufthansa and Swiss to e.g. Nur-Sultan for €794, to Tehran for €894, to Nairobi for €996, to Rio de Janeiro for €1,038, and many more (price pp for a trip with two passengers). There’s availability until September 2022.
Here’s an overview of all destinations on SWISS’s landing page:
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

While the page states the sale has already ended, it has been restarted since. Prices should be available until November 28, 2021.
