Qatar business class return from £912
Qatar seem to have an almost continuous sale on ex EU going on. Here is a round up of the latest deals I have found on ex EU flights. If it’s your first time starting your trip outside the UK you may want to read our beginner’s guide here or our guide to departing from Helsinki and Scandinavian airport here.
Don’t forget that on Qatar for most routes you would earn 560 tier points return which is almost enough for BA silver providing you have 4 qualifying flights (you need 600 tier points for Silver). If you want to know more about getting BA status, have a read of this article.
The best deals at the moment, in my opinion, are highlighted in bold below. Prices are return in business class per person.
|Destination||Price||From||Other cheap options|
|Ho Chi Minh City||£ 1,364.00||Stockholm|
|Hong Kong||£ 1,250.00||Stockholm|
|Maldives||£ 1,459.00||Nice||Paris, Rome|
|Tokyo||£ 1,341.00||Stockholm||Helsinki, Oslo, Madrid|
Rules vary by starting point but in general, must be booked by 29 February 2019 and allow changes and cancellations for a hefty fee.
