Excellent Qatar Airways prices on new route Prague (Cape Town £1237 etc)

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

Qatar Airways is launching direct flights from Prague to Doha on 21st August.  There are currently some excellent prices available on long-haul routes via routes in Business Class.

These fares may expire tonight with the end of the current sale. They might also last longer, but if you want to be certain I would act today.

Some of the best deals are:

Prague to Bangkok – CZK 38,286 (£1299)

Prague to Cape Town – CZK 36,435 (£1237)

Prague to Tokyo – CZK 39,590 (£1344)

Prague to Malé / Maldives – CZK 40,875 (£1387)

Prague to Hong Kong – CZK 37,972 (£1289)

Prague to Shanghai – CZK 41,271 (£1401)

Prague to Singapore – CZK 45,602 (£1548)

We found these prices are for flights at the end of August but there should be similar fares later on.  Availability is there but you may have to dig.  Other bargains are almost certainly available although I couldn’t find anything exceptional to Australasia.

For some odd reason, the cheapest fare is often a Business Saver (grey) one and not a Business Promo (red) one.

Any fares which are part of the current sale are for travel by 10th December.

Remember that these flights earn Avios and BA tier points.

As you’ll earn 140 tier points per leg, these trips will add 560 tier points to your account, which is 90% of your British Airways Silver card sorted.  Remember that you do need four British Airways flights as well as 600 tier points to reach Silver, however – it can’t be obtained purely on partner flights unless some are codeshares with a BA flight number.

The only downside is that the Prague to Doha flights are operated by an A320 which means the first 6 hours of the trip won’t be with flat beds.  You will get the seats below:

Qatar A320

It looks like Prague will be a destination to watch for future Qatar Airways sales.  After all, it is easily accessible from pretty much every airport in the UK and, if you decide to travel out a day earlier, there are few better places to spend a night.

There doesn’t seem to be a Czech Qatar Airways home page at the moment so you should book via the UK site here.  Remember to tick ‘Premium Only’ on the flight search page.

    Hello All
    Hoping this is a silly question. In Qatar airways ; how do I find all offers from one country – previously the countries were a drop-down and a list of fares and dates appeared. Looked at them regularly, not only when a sale was announced. Now cannot find it (have replaced my computer)
    thanks

    • Rob says:

      They have messed about with their website. I’m not sure it’s possible. For most countries you can’t even get a full list by going to that country site now.

  • Adrian says:

    From what I can see on QR the seat maps are identical for the recliner and the flat bed planes so until they start flying we may not know. https://www.qatarairways.com/en-gb/fleet/airbus-a320.html, as Matt says above they are 3 rows of 2×2

  • AndyR says:

    It looks like they are using an A320 with flatbeds in August, then recliners from September onwards. Could change at anytime though knowing Qatar.

    They both have 12 seats so it’s not possible to distinguish that way.

  • Rob says:

    It’s A320 followed by 777 last I checked. Was actually £750 when I did a dummy booking. The trouble is visa issues and not being able to leave the airport at DME so can’t use it as a good city stopover

    • Rob says:

      I’ve seen this deal but I consider it risky. Imagine the Qatar flight is cancelled and you are rebooked for 2 days later. You cannot leave the airport in Moscow so you would literally be living in the departure terminal. No thanks ….

        With a fuming wife and the kids !!!!

        No way from me either !

          What use Avios??????
          DPS to HKG x4 in J on Cathay Dragon for 17,000 Avios pp plus tax of £17pp.

          Me VERY happy!

  • Aceman says:

    Can someone with decent internet (stuck on slow internet in Japan countryside!) kindly find me the best QR jump off point for DEL? Mid September…

    Will need to find somewhere to book urgently!

  • Luke says:

    Any recommendations for Prague airport hotels?

    • Polly says:

      Plenty of really pretty places in the old city. very quaint,,and cute.,great street market, food stalls etc. Really get to experience the city that way. Short bus ride into city. Have you been before?

  • NP says:

    Just checking in for flight to Tokyo tomorrow. We were booked on QR38 which appears to be no longer and we have been moved to QR40 without any prior notice. This leaves us with a 7 hour wait at Doha before flight QR812 to Tokyo. I seem to recall some extra benefits being discussed on longer stopovers in Doha? Also any ideas on what to do in that time other than the business lounge?

    • Polly says:

      Bad luck there.,after you eat something, head straight for the bendy black beds in the quiet area. They are OK for a few hours sleep. They will provide you with a blanket etc. Very helpful staff hanging around. Hope you get a good plane on the Tokyo leg.

      • NP says:

        Many thanks. I thought I’d heard talk of hotel rooms being made available but maybe thats for longer stopovers. Tokyo is due to be on an A350.
