This week Qatar Airways has kept us on our toes with some incredible sale fares in their business class. But just yesterday they announced a different campaign – their “Global Sales” promotion.
We've pored through all the different fares on offer around the world and compiled a list of the best ones around the world. (Prices are a mixture of Pound Sterling, Euro and USD as I found them on Wednesday 26th April). Please note some fare expire as early as 1st May 2017 so you should consider booking these flights ASAP.
Many of the fares have a travel date until the end of June, so some may find this restrictive but nonetheless these are great ways to clock up quality air miles.
All of these are for business class and above. Please note that intra-Middle East fares are booked into First Class and if you select carefully to try and get a wide-body aircraft (Airbus A350, Airbus A380, Boeing 777 or Boeing 787), then you will also have the luxury of flying First Class for the short hops.
All the routes listed below transfer in Doha, and if you are doing these for British Airways Executive Club Tier Points, you should receive the following Tier Points for nearly all these business class:
- Europe to Qatar and vice versa- 140TP
- Far East to Qatar and vice versa – 140TP
- USA to Qatar and vice versa – 160TP
- Short Haul Middle East – 60 TP (Don't forget this will be in First Class, as mentioned above).
If you are collecting AA status then these will earn EQM at 1.50 per mile flown and 25% EQD for long haul and 30% EQD for Short Haul.
You can book the fares by clicking the country name in the list below to be taken to that country's sale page. Note that some pages may be in local languages so you may need Google Chrome. Or alternatively we recommend just using Qatar Airways Global Homepage and searching for the promotion by filtering your results to the desired country there.
