Along with their offer from Warsaw, Oneworld member Qatar Airways has put a pretty nice price tag on business class tickets from Budapest to Bangkok as well. For only HUF 478,400 (~€1,314), the gulf carrier will bring you from Eastern Europe to Thailand’s capital in its famously good business class cabin. Sadly, lounge access is no longer included in this fare, but can be added for roughly HUF 40,000 (~€110).
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
Our Go2 tool will forward you directly to Qatar Airways with your preselected flight dates. The fare is available almost daily from June 2021 through January 2022, so you have plenty of dates to choose from when respecting the minimum stay of five days, as well as the maximum stay of one month.
Qatar Airways uses Boeing 787 and Airbus A320 aircraft between Budapest and Doha. The former will bring you a better business class cabin, but flights are often a bit more expensive. All flights to and from Bangkok feature widebody aircraft, sometime even outfitted with the marvelous Qsuite.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
Search & Book
The fare rules for these flights don’t offer an expiration date, so this offer remains valid until its sold out or withdrawn. You can use Google Flights to check availabilities and continue to book on qatarairways.com, which is the best option for several reasons.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
