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

Qatar Airways has launched a week-long sale.

We haven’t seen any pricing at the time of writing, but we’ll give it some extra coverage later in the week.

If you book TODAY, however, you will get an extra 10% off all flights booked via the Qatar Airways website or their mobile app.  You’ll need to use this link to the website and the discount code 24HOURS.

The 10% discount is off the base fare, excluding the taxes and fees.  For economy tickets, that means the 10% discount will end up being quite a bit smaller, but some decent savings will be made on Business Class tickets.
