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:
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.
How to earn Avios from UK credit cards (September 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.
