Qatar Airways is currently offering an excellent fare of £885 from Stockholm, £945 from Copenhagen or £999 from Berlin to Singapore in Business Class.
I mentioned this as a PS. to our coverage of the new Qatar Airways sale the other day, because it isn’t actually part of the main sale. I thought it was worth highlighting again in more detail because:
you obviously can’t go wrong at SEK 10,142 from Stockholm, €1,185 return from Berlin or DKK 8,339 from Copenhagen
you get to fly a brand new Airbus A350 from Doha to Singapore, with the latest Qatar business class seat, although Berlin to Doha is an older A330. If you go via Copenhagen or Stockholm, you get a brand new Boeing 787 between Denmark and Doha!
you will earn 560 British Airways tier points for the trip, which is virtually the 600 tier points required for an Executive Club Silver Card – but remember that you need to have four BA cash one-way flights as well before you get promoted
This Singapore deal is NOT part of the main sale. It is only available for departures between now and 21st June. You can return later but the last outbound date is 21st June.
It is not available every day but it is definitely available. Try Stockholm, Berlin and Copenhagen as starting points. You must book by 22nd May.
To get the price of SEK 10,142 / €1,185 / DKK 8,339 you also need to use the promo code MASTERCARD when booking. Click here for details of how the MASTERCARD offer works. The last day to use this code is 21st May, a day earlier than this fare ends.
You do not need to pay with a Mastercard, however.

How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (August 2022)
As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Avios points from UK credit cards. Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!
In February 2022, Barclaycard launched two exciting new Barclaycard Avios Mastercard cards with a bonus of up to 25,000 Avios. You can apply here.
You qualify for the bonus on these cards even if you have a British Airways American Express card:
There are two official British Airways American Express cards with attractive sign-up bonuses:
You can also get generous sign-up bonuses by applying for American Express cards which earn Membership Rewards points.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Run your own business?
We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,000 Avios.
You should also consider the British Airways Accelerating Business credit card. This is open to sole traders as well as limited companies and has a 30,000 Avios sign-up bonus.
There are also generous bonuses on the two American Express Business cards, with the points converting at 1:1 into Avios. These cards are open to sole traders as well as limited companies.
