Amazing business deals (Avios earning) from Qatar Airways – Maldives £907, Singapore £837, Cape Town £914, Sydney £1414

Qatar Airways has kicked off another amazing round of business class deals under the heading of ‘Qatar Travel Festival’.

This is a genuinely impressive package:

Very, very cheap business class fares from various European departure points

You can book for travel until 15th December 2016!

… all of which earn Avios and British Airways tier points

… or, if you credit to Qatar Airways, will earn triple QMiles

… and you can win a prize as well in a free draw for all bookers

You have five days left to book – these deals end on 17th January.

Full details can be found here.

Qatar Travel Festival

The best fares will not be found from the UK.

Here are a few of the more jaw dropping prices.  These deals are all for business class travel via Doha.

Oslo to Cape Town – NOK 11,895 (£914)

Oslo to Bangkok – NOK 10,045 (£772)

Oslo to Maldives – NOK 11,795 (£907)

Oslo to Melbourne / Sydney – NOK 18,395 (£1,414)

Oslo to Singapore – NOK 10,895 (£837)

Copenhagen to Bali – DKK 13,795 (£1,380)

Copenhagen to Bangkok – DKK 8,945 (£895)

Copenhagen to Dubai – DKK 8,045 (£804)

Copenhagen to Hong Kong – DKK 10,695 (£1,070)

Copenhagen to Sydney – DKK 15,495 (£1,550)

Amsterdam to Bangkok – €1,160 (£866)

Amsterdam to Cape Town – €1,380 (£1,030)

Amsterdam to Dubai – €1,110 (£828)

Amsterdam to Phuket – €1,220 (£910)

Amsterdam to Zanzibar – €1,165 (£870)

These routes would all – apart from Dubai – earn 560 tier points return (140 + 140 + 140 + 140) due to the change of plane in Doha.

As ever with Qatar, you should keep an eye on the aircraft.  The most modern seats are on the Boeing 787, Airbus A350 and Airbus A380 fleet.  The A330 and Boeing 777 aircraft are now all fully flat, however.  A couple may even find the older style seating on these aircraft better as there are pairs of seat together.  The newer planes have a herringbone layout where passengers faces away from each other.

My review of the 787 business class seat is here.  The 777 business seat review is here.  The food and drink is the same high quality whichever aircraft you use.

You can book your Qatar Travel Festival deals on this special site here.

PS.  This morning, a third party website was (accidentally?) selling these fares cheaper than the official Qatar prices.  These fares have now been withdrawn so you should book via the official Qatar site instead.  This will lock in the triple QMiles should you decide to credit them to the Qatar scheme.

    Great recommendation – found PAR/MLE for £950 over October half term and PAR/CMB for £840 for Christmas. Paris is an easier hop with kids. CMB booking 15th to 31st December but it would have let me book until further into January! Seems the travel period applied to the outbound rather than the inbound flight.
