Qatar has been offering non-stop bargains from Scandivania recently but the Bangkok fare is the best I have seen for a while from this area. The fares are from Stockholm and Oslo both of which are fairly easy to get to from the UK with direct BA flights. To find out more about doing an ex EU from these airports check out our Scandanavia airport guide here.

Qatar are part of oneworld, so you earn BA tier points and Avios too. A round trip to Asia in business class would get you 560 tier points which is nearly enough for BA Silver. For that, you need 4 eligible BA flights and 600 tier points. Silver gets you lounge access and free seat selection. 

The best fares are:

  • Stockholm – Bangkok £1177
  • Stockholm – Ho Chi Minh £1274
  • Stockholm – Phuket £1171
  • Stockholm – Auckland £2043
  • Oslo – Singapore £1233
  • Oslo – Perth £1963
  • Oslo – Sydney £2035
  • Oslo – Melbourne £2014
  • Oslo – Adelaide £2021
  • Oslo – Cape Town £1356

  1. The post mentions sale fares to New Zealand as well – how much are they? Thank you

    Hi Michele, do you know if there is an easy way to search for QR sale price availability? Let’s say the OSL-CPT you mention above, on the QR website when I click “book now” it only takes me to the one nearest available date, and from then on I have to search either day by day, or in 2 week blocks (but that doesn’t work particularly well.) Throw in the fact that some availability has long stopovers in DOH (which I’m trying to avoid) and the whole thing takes forever.

    Itamatrix maybe, if I search for the specific fare code?

    Thanks for your help.

  3. Hi, I’ve also been looking at flights to Akl from Stockholm and Oslo. I can’t seem to find any at the prices you mention in your article. The best I can find is £2,400 – outbound Jan return Feb. This is only marginally cheaper than what they were a week ago, so not sure it’s much of a sale. What dates were you looing at Michelle to find sub £2k ticket? Is there a special code I should be using? It’s still a bargain compared to flying BA ex LHR and a much nicer Biz product! thanks

    • Hi I can see the issue now. I checked a few of the fares as correct but not AKL. Although it shows at under £2000, when you click through to book it comes out at £2170

Have your say
