I’m back from a little hiatus and was happy to find Qatar have a new business class sale on. Sale fares are from multiple European cities, as usual, many of the best fares are from Stockholm. But this sale has more variation, with the many destinations and many European cities to fly from, most routing through Doha with the option to stopover.
What: Qatar limited-time offers in Business Class from EU cities to many cities in Middle East, Asia and Indian Ocean.
Offer: These fares offer pretty decent value in what has been awarded best Business Class by Skytrax four years running. Some routes allow you to experience Qsuite, which is pretty much the best Business Class seat in the sky and rivals some First Class experiences.
Availability: Lots of dates from now into next year, but with some blackout dates during holidays and surcharges for travel during a weekend. Stopovers are permitted.
Book By: 15 December 2019
You will need to book and fly from a European destination. If you must fly from the UK, the same sale is also running from the UK, but you will pay more with less choice of destinations. To position to your origin city, there should be plenty of cheap flights from the UK.
You can browse through all offers by visiting each country’s premium travel sale below (click the name of the country!). I have shown the starting value for each sale. Values in bold mean they represent the cheapest (and general value for money) fares in the sale to a particular destination:
Maximum Extravagance, Minimum Cost
Get a Qsuite
Ideally, you want to sample the best seat Qatar has to offer! When booking, make sure the flight has a grey Q symbol to show you are getting at least one Qsuite on that leg. You can also confirm if the flight will be Qsuite (subject to no changes!) by inputting the date and flight number into Expert Flyer (sign up for free). The seat map should be 1-2-1 and alternating (see below).
Note that Qatar does not fly the QSuite to all destinations on the list. If there are no flights at all in your searches with a Q symbol, it means it isn’t flown on that route.
Get a 5-star Stopover
Finally, for maximum value! Most routes go through Doha – if you travel in 2019 and choose a stopover for at least 12 hours (use the multi-city search option if you struggle), you get a free visa and can stay in a 5-star hotel for less than £23 a night! See the offer page here: Qater Stopovers.
