Looking for a great Business Class deal between Europe and Australia? Qatar Airways is currently having a sale on Business Class flights departing from Sweden. You can fly Qatar Airways Business Class – in the airline’s famous Qsuites, no less – from Stockholm to Sydney for $3,769 return.
As regular Australian Frequent Flyer readers will know, airlines often offer much better premium cabin airfares from Europe to Australia than the opposite direction, from Australia to Europe. Note that this fare is only available on round-trip bookings originating in Sweden, and not bookings that begin in Australia.
This Qatar Airways Business class sale out of Sweden is on until Monday 19 August, 2019. You can book on the Qatar Airways website.
There is a minimum stay at the destination of 3 days, and a maximum permitted stay of one month. Unfortunately, this does make it difficult to use this fare if you live in Australia. A free stopover in Doha of up to 96 hours is allowed, in one direction only.
This Qatar Airways sale fare out of Sweden is available for travel from 20 August 2019 until 31 May 2020, with some blackout dates. Outbound travel from Sweden to Australia is not permitted on this fare between 13 December 2019 and 5 January 2020, or from 27 March to 12 April 2020. On the return leg from Australia to Sweden, travel is not allowed between 1-12 January or 12-26 April 2020. Travel from Stockholm to Australia must commence from Sunday to Thursday, and the return flight from Australia needs to leave between Monday and Friday.
Here are some sample itineraries that we found using ITA Matrix…
This itinerary has a 3-night stopover in Doha, Qatar on the outbound journey:
If you choose your aircraft carefully, you could travel in Qatar Airways’ award-winning Qsuites for the entire trip! Qatar Airways uses a mixture of A380s, A350s and Boeing 777-300ERs between Sydney and Doha. Between Doha and Stockholm, both Airbus A350s and Boeing 787 Dreamliners are used. To score a Qsuite on these routes, look for flights on the Airbus A350 or Boeing 777-300ER.
Qatar Airways also has some good Business Class airfares at the moment from Stockholm to Auckland and Canberra.
These Qatar Business promo fares book into “R” fare class. You can earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points and status credits – albeit at a reduced rate compared to if you were flying on a Qantas aircraft.
