Star Alliance Business Class Companion Sale: Sydney at €1,557 pP, Auckland at €1,757 pP from Amsterdam

Swiss Boeing 777 Business Class Privacy Seat 3

Star Alliance member SWISS currently offers a very sexy partner sale from Amsterdam. The absolute highlights of this sale are the €1,757 business class roundtrips to Auckland and, even better, €1,557 roundtrips to Sydney. All itineraries feature two layovers – one in Zurich and one in East Asia, most likely in Singapore or Hong Kong.


This is a partner sale – you have to purchase tickets for two adults to get the quoted price.

2 tickets to Sydney for €1,557 each
2 tickets to Auckland for €1,757 each

You will fly in Swiss’ business class within Europe and onwards to Singapore or Bangkok. From these airports, you will enjoy Singapore Airlines’ (SIN) or THAI’s (BKK) luxurious premium products to Sydney. If you’re flying to Auckland, you’ll usually fly to Hong Kong, and then continue to Auckland with Cathay Pacific.


We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.

Search & Book

The fare rules state that this deal expires on January 11, 2021 and covers flights until December 2021. You can find flight dates on Google Flights (instructions). You should then book the flights to Auckland via Lufthansa’s landing page (most convenient option).

Flights to Sydney can be booked via SWISS’ website. Don’t forget to enter at least 2 adults in every search mask, since this is a partner sale! It is also important that you select “Lufthansa Group” for Airline:

When proceeding with a booking, you’ll be presented a selection of all available flight options. Once you’ve reached this site, make sure to select exactly the same flights as seen in Google Flights.
