Best Deals ex-Europe on the Qatar Airways Business Class Companion Fare Sale (Book by October 16)


Qatar airways has (yet again) launched their (n+1)th iteration on what seems to be an endless Business Class sale. This new iteration is a Companion fare sale with discounts of up to 50% when buying two tickets on the same itinerary (John wrote about it yesterday).

This sale is valid for reservations ticketed before October 16, 2017 for round trip travel completed before May 31, 2018 (travel between December 15, 2017 and January 10, 2018 is excluded).

You can access this offer on Qatar’s website here.

Remember that Qatar is now offering complimentary stopover packages for those wishing to stay overnight in the country until December 30, 2017. You can read more about this here.
