Finnair is my “go to” airline for good value Business Class travel from the UK to the Far East. Its prices may not match the sometimes spectacular bargains on ex-EU routes, but for consistently good value Business Class flights from London, it is hard to beat.
Right now, its always low-priced Business Class long-haul flights from London to Asia are even better value, thanks to its “Holiday Deals to Asia” promotion. The lowest fare is Xi’an at £1225 return, but with Bangkok at £1309, Delhi at £1310 and Beijing at £1335, there are some “big name” options at good prices, too.
So what’s available?
Standout fares are as follows (all Business Class, return):
- Xi’an at £1225
- Chongqing at £1249
- Bangkok at £1309
- Delhi at £1310
- Beijing at £1335
- Guangzhou at £1339
- Krabi at £1375
- Phuket at £1379
- Seoul at £1379
- Ho Chi Minh City at £1379
- Hong Kong at £1420
- Singapore at £1459
These are certainly not “call everyone you know and scream down the phone at them” prices, as some of the ex-EU fares sometimes are, but they are very solid deals. There are also some reasonable deals in Economy, starting at £429 long-haul return.
To benefit from the promotional prices, you need to book by 9 January.
Is the Business Class product any good?
Yes. I have flown it several times, and regard it as one of the better flag-carrier options.
It’s not Qatar, Etihad or Emirates, but then few are.
