Qatar Airways has launched some limited time two-to-travel economy class fares to select cities in Europe starting from S$749. This sale runs until 26 March 2018. Tickets bought during this sale are valid for travel between 1 April 2018 and 30 November 2018. These deals are bookable on the Qatar Airways website.
There are 6 European city pairs available in this sale. Athens at S$789 is a steal should you be able to price it out on the Qatar Airways website, potentially making it cheaper than Scoot.
These are two-to-go fares, but there are savings to be had over the year-round travel deals. For comparison, fares to Copenhagen are normally going for S$1,000~ per person on QR’s year long promotion. If you’re able to snag the flash deal fare, you would only be paying approximately S$873 per person.
If you’re heading to Oslo, the fare that Qatar Airways is currently offering at S$869 is quite good value. In general, Qatar fare deals make the most sense when you’re looking at destinations not served by SIA, because then you’d be looking at one-stop options regardless. Qatar serves quite a few holiday destinations like Budapest, Prague, St Petersburg, Venice and Nice which you can’t reach direct from Singapore.
