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.
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.
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 These fares have now been withdrawn so you should book via the official Qatar site instead.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.
