There’s no time like the present to book a trip to Greece. Especially now that Emirates just announced a limited-time sale on companion tickets from Newark to Athens.

On Wednesday, the airline shared details of its sale, which will allow travelers to book two tickets from Newark (EWR) to Athens (ATH) on non-stop flights starting from $949 in economy class. Passengers can also book business class fares starting at $5,999 and first class fares starting at $9,999.

But if you want to get in on the deal, you better act fast. The sale only runs through 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, Oct. 12.

The sale is also only valid for travel taking place between Nov. 5, 2018 and Dec. 18, 2018, and Dec. 26, 2018 through May 14, 2019.

If you’re hoping to not lift a finger in the vacation planning process, you could always book an Emirates Vacation for two, which will help you discover the best parts of Greece for seven whole nights starting at just $1,845.

Greece is a destination that can be enjoyed any time of the year. With the flight sale, Emirates — the only airline to offer a year-round non-stop service between the U.S. and Greece — made a few suggestions on what to do and see in both the fall and winter seasons.

On its list, Emirates suggested checking out Athens, the country’s capital. With fewer tourists crowding both the streets and historical sites visitors could get to see more than ever.

Next up, it suggested visiting an olive farm for some olive oil tasting. October and November are harvesting time for the plant, making it an ideal opportunity to taste test a new batch.

And since you’re there in the colder months anyway, Emirates suggested you take to the slopes at one of the country’s ski resorts, including taking a few runs down Mount Olympus itself. And for an aprés ski treat, get your hands on kotosoupa avgolemono, a Greek culinary specialty of chicken soup with an egg and lemon base.
