Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Good Qatar Airways flight sale deals to Asia – but not from the UK

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Whilst great Qatar Airways business class deals from the UK have dried up in recent years, mainly due to the joint venture agreement with British Airways, we still see deals out of Europe.

Until 30th April there are some good prices (vs current comparators) to Asia. These fares are valid until the end of the year, although you won’t find much in July and August. Apart from that …. availability is not bad.

Remember that these deals should earn 560 British Airways Executive Club tier points each because each return trip is 4 x long-haul flights of 2,000+ miles. These earn 140 tier points each. You’re over 90% of the way to a British Airways Executive Club Silver card, although you’d also need four BA or Iberia cash flights in your current membership year to be upgraded
