Saudia is back with some incredible Business Class fares from Italy to Asia. You can currently book flights from Rome or Milan to destinations like Jakarta, Mumbai and Dubai for well under £800 Return.
The stand out deal this time is Rome to Jakarta for £755 Return
I would recommend using Google Flights to get an idea of dates and then switching to Momondo, Kayak, SkyScanner, etc, to check the best prices. As you can see below, Google Flights shows good availability throughout the Autumn, but prices the fares slightly higher than some of the other sites:
Other options include:
- Milan – Mumbai: ~£665 Return
- Milan – Dubai: ~£740 Return
But it’s Saudia….
Yep – aside from the fact you’ll need to get to/from Italy first, the main issue for many people is that they would not be comfortable flying with Saudia or changing planes in Saudi Arabia.
There’s no getting away from the fact that Saudi Arabia is a very conservative religious society and the airline reflects those values. Obviously that means no booze onboard, but also perhaps less obvious things like a dress code for men and women.
I would recommend doing your own research about Saudia first to help decide if you would be happy flying or not. If you decide you would be comfortable, these are extremely good Business Class fares.
