Qatar Airways has just launched offers on First and Business Class travel bookings from Tuesday 30 April to Monday 6 May 2019.

Qatar are offering savings of up to 20 per cent on all Premium fares, as well as up to 25 per cent on all companion Premium fares. Privilege Club members can also earn double Qpoints on all Premium bookings.

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Simon Talling-Smith, said: “As the ‘World’s Best Business Class’, Qatar Airways prides itself on providing our Premium passengers with an unforgettable journey from start to finish.

With Premium check-in desks, a generous baggage allowance, world-class lounges and Qatar Airways’ revolutionary Qsuite, our First and Business Class passengers enjoy an unprecedented level of satisfaction and luxury every time they travel.

“We are pleased to offer our Premium customers the opportunity to take advantage of this latest offer and experience a journey ‘like never before’.”

The airline will add a number of new destinations to its extensive route network in 2019, including Lisbon, Portugal; Malta; Rabat, Morocco; Izmir, Turkey; Langkawi, Malaysia; Davao, Philippines; and Mogadishu, Somalia.

Some of the best bargains are from Russia but as you need an expensive visa that requires a visit to the Russian Embassy I have not included these. Some of the best bargains are from Eastern Europe but be aware some of these are on short-haul aircraft to Doha like Belgrade, so check carefully before you book what the type is. Travel dates vary by destination.

From the UK the prices aren’t great but there is a good deal from Cardiff to South Africa with Cape Town from £1940 and Johannesburg from £1515.

Here is a selection of the cheapest ex EU prices based on two people travelling together. Prices shown are per person for return business class flights.

    Your title mentions First Fares?

    • Yes. It’s 25% off companion fares but I struggled to find any that I would regard as good value even with the discount.

Have your say
