To avoid sales clutter, we’ve decided to start a weekly series on airfare deals. Here’s where we’ll feature a summary of all but the most time-sensitive of deals (e.g flash sales). Purchases made through any of the links in this article supports The Milelion through an affiliate commission.
Qatar Airways is currently holding its “Early-Bird” sale which runs from now until 5 July 2018. Tickets bought during this sale are valid for travel from 1 September 2018 and 31 March 2019. Tickets must be booked on the Qatar Airways website.
In this sale, flights to Europe, Africa and Middle East start from S$949 round trip in Economy Class. Business Class fares are also on offer in this sale with Paris coming in at just under S$5,000. At S$969 to London Heathrow, that’s a good price to pay on Qatar Airways. In addition, if you book your tickets during this sale, you will earn twice the amount of Qmiles from your flight. Although personally, I wouldn’t recommend crediting your flights to the Privilege Club program after the massive devaluation which happened.
Here’s the full list of destinations available for booking in this sale:
KLM is still holding its “Take-Off deals” sale which runs until 10 July 2018. The travel period for tickets bought during this sale is between 01 July 2018 to 30 April 2019 for flights to Europe and Bali and from 1 September 2018 – 30 April 2019 for flights to North America. Tickets must be booked on KLM’s website.
Fares in KLM’s sale are quite good with fares starting from S$813 to Stockholm and from S$1,365 to New York. Bali is once again on offer and fares start from S$273 in Economy Class and S$583 in Business Class. We’ve seen lower Business Class fares to Bali in previous sales so if you’re thinking of snagging an affordable Business Class ticket to Bali it’s best you hold off until the next sale!
