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.
