Star Alliance members Lufthansa and Swiss are currently offering discounted business class flights from Stockholm to multiple Asian destinations like Bangkok, Dubai or Singapore. Fares go as low SEK 9,800 (~€929) to Dubai! All itineraries feature a single, short layover in either Frankfurt, Munich or Zurich. Fares are available from Stockholm as well as Gothenburg.
It is pretty much up in the air if international long haul travel will be possible again in 2020, so please proceed with caution and check the airlines’ current rebooking and cancellation rules. Further, Lufthansa is currently evaluating bankruptcy, so there is an additional risk to lose your money.

You can find suitable flight dates on Google Flights. However, we recommend using Lufthansa’s best price search. Due to the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, we strongly suggest booking directly via Lufthansa or Swiss directly and avoid online travel agencies.
Lufthansa and Swiss both issue tickets in booking class P for both flight segments. Both airlines handle this booking class very differently. Nearly all Star Alliance programs will credit 100% of travel distance when travelling Swiss, while Lufthansa flights might not be credited at all.
