As I was heading for bed last night, Qatar Airways was rolling out its major new Qatar Airways Travel Festival sale.
Prices are as low as £601 for Stockholm to Dubai in Business Class, a route that would get you 400 tier points and a large pile of Avios.
When this ran at the start of the year there were some astonishing deals, such as £800 business class tickets to Asia. Remember that all Qatar Airways flights earn Avios and tier points in British Airways Executive Club and, if you head to Asia, you’ll earn 560 tier points per return trip.
The best deals will involve starting your trip in another EU country.
I will do a full summary on Tuesday. Here are some deals out of Stockholm in business class:
Dubai – £806 for one person, £780 based on two travelling (in reality, it is pricing at £628 – SEK 7,000 – for one traveller and £601 based on two travellers)
Bangkok – £1200 for one person, £1020 based on two travelling
Singapore – £1295 for one person, £1087 based on two travelling
Sydney – £2160 for one person, £1750 based on two travelling
These pages should have a summary of the best deals:
In most cases you must book on the Qatar Airways website by 5th September and travel between 15th September and 30th June. No travel 15th December to 10th January.
More tomorrow when I’ve had a chance to see what is out there.
