Qatar Airways sale offering ‘Kids Fly Free’ in Economy

My discussion of the new Qatar Airways sale yesterday focussed exclusively on business class fares.  The airline is also offering some good prices on economy tickets.

In particular, there is a VERY novel ‘kids fly free’ deal.  On some economy tickets, children under 12 do not pay anything except for taxes.

There is a catch.  This deal is only valid on ‘Economy Saver’ tickets in N and S class.  On some routes you will find cheaper tickets in booking classes T, O and W (‘Economy Promo’) which negate the saving.

Here is an example I found to Doha:

As you can see, the two children pay nothing apart from £60 of taxes.  The adults are paying £570 each, however, which is higher than many sale Economy fares to the Middle East.

That said, the average price per ticket in this example is just £313 per person which is exceptionally cheap for a DIRECT economy flight to Doha from Heathrow.

This deal is available on all Qatar Airways routes if you can find dates where the cheapest available Economy ticket bucket is S or N.  You can ONLY book via this specific page of the Qatar Airways website – this deal is not available via Expedia etc.

You need to book by 5th September for travel by 30th June.

    OT – Economist deal seems to be extended to 31 Oct but can’t get Canada to work?

    OT: I see that Roger (not me) and roger (not me either) have posted in this thread, as well as me.

    I’ve no idea who has the longest posting history. Only Raffles would know that (if he bothered). So I’ve added an asterisk to my name to try and make a difference. 🙂
