Qatar “Travel Festival” sale on Economy and Business Class
The Qatar Travel Festival recently announced by Qatar airways is their largest promotion of the year. Many fares are 50% off through September 5th. There are some great deals if you are looking at flying almost anywhere in the world from now through June ’17! In case you weren’t aware Qatar is rated one the “World’s Best Airlines” by Skytrax.
Flying any of the Persian Gulf based airlines (Emirates, Etihad, Qatar) will far exceed any experience you’ll receive on any of the US domestic airlines. Qatar also flies the fancy new Airbus A350 (pictured above) out of New York, Philadelphia and Boston.
Besides the sale, you’ll earn 3x Qmiles when you book, and any ticket purchases during the sale will also be entered into a drawing to win several prizes. Kids up to 12 years old also fly free. I’m not aware of any other airline which offers this perk.
The sale is based on the book more, save more philosophy. Find at least 3-4 other friends and family to travel with and you’ll save more. Check out the example below. Flying from Atlanta to Dubai is $750 for one passenger, but if you can find four other people to book with you, it’s only $610 each! That’s a huge savings.
The Qatar Travel Festival sale only happens a couple times a year and typically offers significant savings. Take a look through the list of destinations in both economy and business class. Flying the A350 in business class is one of the best ways to fly, and can be found for around $3,000. I’m flying the A350 on Qatar in November and am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to fly on one of the most exciting new aircraft available.
