Probably the most competitive promo fares I’ve seen coming out from a five star airline (or for any long-haul flights for that matter) this year, Qatar Airways is offering discounted prices to over 100 destinations in its global network as part of the airline’s travel festival.
I have done a bit of browsing and found roundtrip flights to many European destinations going for just over SGD 800 and Americas for as low as SGD 860 originating from Singapore. Even Africa which is rarely on sale is going for just a bit above SGD 800 on Economy. As a keen supporter of traveling to off-the-beaten path locales, QR’s network is hard to beat with flights from Baghdad to Baku, from Kilimanjaro to Kathmandu. Their list of destinations reads like someone’s travel bucket list.
From Manila, there are a couple of great deals as well. I spotted Oslo going for US$525 roundtrip while many other continental European destinations are going for US$600+.
Bookings under this promo can be made from 29th August to 5th September 2016 with travel dates from 15th September 2016 to 30 June 2017. Bookings can be made through this link: qatarairways.com/travelfestival
During the travel festival, QR is also giving 600 prizes to select bookings with highlights including round-the-world tickets as well as complimentary upgrades to Business class.
One of the best deals I’ve found in the promotion. Check out that SGD 860 roundtrip flight to LA from SIN.
From Manila, this US$525 roundtrip fare to Oslo is also quite compelling if you plan to see the northern lights this winter. Paris for US$606 is also typically unheard of.
