Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Stockholm / Berlin / Copenhagen to Singapore from £885 business class, with 560 BA tier points

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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

Qatar 787 350 business class

Qatar Airways business class is excellent as I reviewed here, here and here

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.

    Rob, you mention you don’t need to pay with a MasterCard, but when i get to the booking screen, only MasterCard is an option. Any way around this?

    • Anon says:

      After you get a booking ref and before you pay, open a new browser window. Go to QA site, manage booking, enter booking ref and name. Booking will be on hold awaiting payment. Go to pay…now you can pay with any card

  • occasional ranter says:

    Genuine question: is it really worth getting 3 flights each way in order to travel Qatar business class, rather than just travelling Singapore Airlines economy direct from London to Singapore ? The latter seems less of an ordeal to me, much as I’ve enjoyed some of the business class flights I’ve taken.

    • Alan says:

      For that length of flight I definitely would, although I really appreciate the legroom and am used to always having to connect for long-haul flights anyway!

  • Tony says:

    Ive tried connecting to the Mastercard Quatar thing but I keep getting a blank screen ?
