I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating. Finnair are my default carrier for consistently great value Business Class fares from the UK. Ok, they don’t necessarily offer the mega-value occasionally offered by the likes of Qatar, but they are much more consistent in offering the lower UK fares.
As a result, you’ll almost always find very solid value out of the UK with Finnair Business Class. With other carriers, you will often need to shift your long-haul starting point to mainland Europe to get the real value.
With that in mind, when a Finnair Business Class sale is on (albeit they are generally offering a sale in some form or the other) it’s worth taking a look. Current Business Class fares from the UK, available for the next two weeks, are particularly appealing even by Finnair’s own standards:
Finnair Business Class return
- Xi’an – £1230
- Chongqing £1250
- Delhi £1315
- Bangkok £1315
- Guangzhou £1340
- Beijing £1340
- Krabi £1375
- Ho Chi Minh City £1385
- Phuket £1385
- Seoul £1385
- Hong Kong £1425
- Singapore £1465
There are a few very competitive deals there, but Bangkok at £1315 stands out.
Note that if you are willing to be a bit flexible, the Finnair Business Class sale rates out of Paris start at €1305 (£1100) return.
Bear in mind, too, that Finnair Business Class is an excellent product. It may not quite be Qatar or Etihad, but it’s not far off. Having flown it on numerous occasions on the back of the types of deals outlined above, I can vouch for this.
Don’t forget that you can also earn Avios on Finnair, as it’s in the Oneworld alliance.
And that’s not all…
While we’re on the subject of good value ex-UK Business Class, it’s worth flagging the current Swiss sale.
While it’s not spectacular, with ex-UK long haul Business Class starting at £1386 (and flights from Heathrow, London City, Birmingham and Manchester), it’s worth taking a look at. Stand out prices include
- Delhi at £1444 return from Heathrow
- Dubai at £1386 return from Birmingham (£1396 from Heathrow)
- Mumbai at £1447 return from Heathrow
- Muscat at £1395 return from Heathrow
