Qatar Airways has just launched a new promotion in which it's offering Privilege Club members up to 20% off Economy and Business Class fares from Europe to various destinations including destinations in Australia, Southeast Asia, and the Indian Ocean.
This coming winter, Qatar is set to be the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will see tens of thousands of football (soccer) fans descending on the Middle Eastern state to support their national teams. For Qatar Airways, this represents a considerable challenge as it now has to work out how to transport all of these fans from and to their home countries.
Historically, those of us who are in a position to book premium cabin flights for travel between Europe and Asia have had a very easy path to oneworld Sapphire Elite status courtesy of one of the world's best airlines - Qatar Airways. Now, however, it's starting to look like that path may have been shut down.
Qatar Airways has published a new flash sale to celebrate 25 years of service to London Heathrow and appropriately, the promotion is offering customers up to 25% off the airline's fares for travel from Heathrow to select cities in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Oceania.
At the height of the pandemic, Qatar Airways was the largest airline in the world as it continued to operate a significant number of international routes as other airlines mothballed their fleets. The airline's Doha to London Gatwick route, however, didn't survive those dark days but in a sign that we're continuing on the road back to normality, Qatar Airways has confirmed that it will return to Gatwick this summer.
While this isn't published as a Black Friday deal, Qatar Airways appears to be offering a few good/reasonable Business Class fares for travel between the United States and South Africa for October onwards next year. The best deals are to be found for travel originating on the East Coast, but there are a couple of reasonable fares available from other areas too.
Apparently, it has been a year since Qatar Airways introduced its 'Student Club' to the world and in celebration of the Student Club's first anniversary, Qatar Airways has launched a flash deal in which members of the club can get up to 40% off select Qatar Airways fares.
Qatar Airways has launched a new promotion in conjunction with Hamad International Airport in which it's offering just three prizes. Two of the prizes are pretty amazing, but the top prize is incredible as it will make someone an instant millionaire.
Qatar Airways has launched a new flash sale for departures from the United States and is offering some very good Business Class deals (by US standards) to destinations in Africa and the Indian Ocean out of at least five different US cities. With all Qatar Airways flights between the US and Doha offering the famed Qsuite Business Class cabin, these deals could be a good way of getting 2022 off to a very nice start.
I'm not sure how I missed this when it was first launched but if you're a collector of points with any one of Qatar Airways' banking partners, you should know that the airline will currently give you a 20% bonus if you convert those points to Privilege Club Qmiles. For US credit card holders this means a 20% bonus on transfers from Citi's ThankYou program but elsewhere in the world, transfers from Amex, HSBC, and a wide variety of other banks will also all trigger this bonus.
