Last year, Qatar Airways‘ Qmiles have been massively devalued without any notice. But there is a nice promotion that could help you to compensate for the loss that you had to take: you will get a discount of 30% to 50% on reward flights to selected destinations. The offer is valid for flights in May & June 2019.
There are a few departure airports in Europe that will get you a 50% (e.g., Belgrade, Gothenburg, Warsaw), 40% (e.g., Barcelona, Milan, Thessaloniki) or at least a 30% (Athens, Dublin, Rome) discount on Business Class flights.
If you’re planning on sitting in the Economy Class cabin, 40% (e.g., Kiev, Malaga, Nice) off is the maximum that you can get. Qatar offers 30% for most European departure cities (e.g., Bucharest, London, Prague).
Also, the list of destinations for Business Class flights has a few exiting entries (Qatar often operates its QSuite on these routes – not guaranteed, of course):
- 50% discount
- Colombo, Sri Lanka
- Hanoi / Ho Chi Minh City / Da Nang, Vietnam
- Kochi, India
- Phuket, Thailand
- Rangoon, Myanmar
- 40% discount
- Bangkok (QSuite), Thailand
- Beijing (QSuite), China
- Bali, Indonesia
- Goa, India
- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
- 30% discount
- Johannesburg / Cape Town, South Africa
- Seoul, South Korea
- Windhoek, Namibia
The complete list of destinations as well as departure airports (there are more than the ones mentioned above) can be found on the landing page.
You can, of course, combine the discounts in one booking. For example, you could fly from Munich to Kuala Lumpur with one layover in Doha. You’d receive a 40% discount for the flight from Europe to Doha. And another 50% discount for the flight from Doha to Kuala Lumpur.
The offer is valid until May 15th for travel commencing between May 1st and June 30th, 2019. You’ll need to enter the promotional code: EDEALS519
The promotion works surprisingly well and is definitely a good way to get rid of those award miles you’ve been stashing away!Cover Picture: © Qatar Airways
