Yes it’s a month that starts with a capital letter, so that must mean it’s time for another Qatar Airways sale!
Book your ticket by 6th September for travel between 15 September 2016 and 30 June 2017.
As usual, prices from the UK are ok but not great – the screengrab below shows the prices in Business Class for 2 people.
To get the real bargains you need to start elsewhere in Europe, with Amsterdam, Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Helsinki usually being good bets.
Some of the Economy prices are absolutely ludicrous, like Stockholm to Dubai for £150.00 Return!
Business Class is very reasonable too, working out at at roughly £600.00.
There are some great fares from Pisa (particularly to Tokyo, Seoul and Bangkok) this time as well – eg. Bangkok for 2 people in Business Class from ~ £875.00 (1,028 Euros) per person.
If you are looking to build a round-the-world (or similarly big trip) itinerary you might also want to check out the prices starting from locations that often have the cheapest airfares like Colombo, Casablanca and Cairo. Colombo to Boston, for example, is pricing at an astonishing ~ £850 Return in Business Class!
Qatar are also offering Triple ‘Q Miles’ at the moment and the chance to win some great prizes (eg. 100,000 Q Miles, free upgrades to Business Class, round-the-world tickets etc) with every booking.
If you would rather collect Avios or are looking to qualify for status with British Airways, a Return from Europe to Dubai in Business will get you roughly ~ 7,500 Avios + 380 Tier Points, Bangkok ~ 15,000 Avios + 560 Tier Points, Tokyo ~ 19,000 Avios + 560 Tier Points, or Seoul ~ 17,000 Avios + 560 Tier Points.
The Colombo-Boston example would net nearly 22,000 Avios + 600 Tier Points.
Remember that you only need 600 Tier Points (and 4 flights on British Airways planes) for Silver status with BA!
