If – for whatever reason – you cannot start your trip as planned, the flights can be canceled free of charge at any time thanks to the Corona goodwill rules. These currently apply to all bookings with a travel period up until May 31, 2022. Rebooking is possible without a rebooking fee, but the price difference will be charged.
Our availability calendar shows all available dates and will then either redirect you to Qatar Airways’ booking site, or to our Travel-Dealz flight search, where you could save roughly €25:
The airplane flying you to your first and only layover in Doha depends on where you’re flying from. From Paris, for instance, it may be an Airbus A380. From Doha, you’ll fly to Entebbe onboard a Boeing 787.

This deal expires on October 25, 2021. You can fly before December 16, 2021, or after January 8, 2022, however, not on Fridays or Saturdays. Furthermore, your trip needs to be at least 3 days long and may not exceed 6 months.
Our availability calendar above displays all available dates, as does Google Flights. Once you’ve found the dates that suit you best, you can either book directly on Qatar Airways’ website or save roughly €25 by booking through an OTA with our Travel-Dealz flight search.
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.
The tickets are issued in booking class O. To give you an example, flying from Paris would get you:
- 5,246 Qmiles + 50 Qpoints on Qatar Privilege Club
- 4,224 Points on Finnair Plus
- 2,624 Avios + 80 TP on British Airways Executive Club
- 2,624 Avios + 250 TP on Iberia Plus
