Despite the current situation, the deals from London on Qatar are frankly poor, especially since they have reduced the benefits on the lowest price fares. Whether we see any other deals that are not advertised pop up remains to be seen. The best deals are ex EU which obviously carries some risk if you are planning to travel anytime soon due to the entry restrictions constantly changing. However, the deals are valid for travel until the end of September, although for many prices I can see them for the foreseeable future.

UK deals

From the UK the discounts are available on the following routes.

  • Edinburgh to Adelaide, Cape Town, Dhaka, Phuket, Johannesburg, Karachi.
  • Manchester to Bangkok, Cape Town, Phuket Islamabad, Johannesburg, Karachi, Lahore. Muscat, Maldives, Tehran, Zanzibar

However, I have found a few other places that have reasonable prices for Qatar from the UK. Here is what I have found so far:

  • Jakarta £1892
  • Singapore £2109
  • Phuket £2000
  • Bangkok £1918
  • Nairobi £1804
  • Mumbai £1699
  • Hong Kong £1884
  • Cape Town £2349
  • Shanghai £1868
  • Ho Chi Minh City £2000

Don’t forget they are likely to be in the new business classic which does not give seat selection or lounge access automatically. You can read more here. 

It’s also worth checking the price with BA as they can be slightly cheaper for booking Qatar Airways flights and do have lounge access and seat selection. 

You can book direct with Qatar Airways here.

The EU deals are not great either to be honest. We have seen this level of fare repeatedly in the past and now they are worse value without lounge access or seat booking if you have no status.

The cheapest starting points and fares are:

There are also a few extra deals:

Up to 20% off lounge access

Qatar Airways Business Class Al Mourjan lounge Doha review

This could be a handy way to get the Business Classic fare and still get access to the Al Mourjan Lounge or the Oryx Lounge within Hamad International Airport at a discounted price. If you have status in BA at silver or Gold you will still be able to book seats (and access their other lounge for status passengers when it reopens. Currently you could access the Al Mourjan as all other lounges are shut).
