Qatar Airways is back with more superb Business Class fares from Europe (this time from Stockholm) to Asia, including return flights to Singapore for as little as £1044 per person:
Note that these are companion fares so you’ll have to book for 2 people to get the best deals. The fares should be available until 6 May 2019 for travel through to 15 April 2020 (thought there will be some black out dates I imagine).
If you don’t fancy Singapore, there are plenty more great value Asian destinations to choose from, including Bangkok for £1,093 per person:
If you prefer to book direct with Qatar Airways rather than through an online travel agency, you can do so here. The prices may be a little higher, but you can take advantage of Qatar’s generous stopover programme that way (5* hotels for £40.50!).
Where should I credit Qatar Business Class flights?
These fares book into fare class ‘R’, which means you should earn 100%-125% of flown miles, depending on the programme you decide to credit to.
For many readers, I would suggest that British Airways Executive Club (BAEC) is a good option for these particular flights. Although some of the other types of miles available are more valuable than Avios, you’re not going to miss out on a huge haul here, and the real beauty of crediting Qatar Business Class flights to BAEC is the amount of status ‘Tier Points’ you rack up. Stockholm to Singapore (via Doha) would earn 560 Tier Points – almost enough for BAEC Silver status – as well as ~17,000 Avios.
Craig wrote an interesting piece recently though on why you might be better off crediting Qatar flights to Iberia Plus instead.
JAL Mileage Bank could also be a good option if you’re into more ‘exotic’ Miles.
Qatar Airways continues to provide extremely good Business Class fares at the same time as offering what is widely regarded as the best Business Class in the sky. When you add the ability to earn Avios and BA Executive Club Tier Points too, having to hop over to Stockholm to start your trip can be well worth the effort!
