Very competitive business class prices from Izmir

Flights from Izmir to Doha are operated in an Airbus A320 without a Qsuite but with an overall good business class product. Seats are comparable to the US first class seats.

From Doha, there are several Qsuite routes at the time of writing: e.g. Bangkok, Singapore, and Maldives. However, be aware that Qatar Airways can change airplanes (without Qsuite) and this happens quite frequently, unfortunately. You can find more information about all Qatar Airways Qsuite routes here:

This deal is available all year round. The minimum stay is 4 days, the maximum stay is 1 month. There is no blackout period, so even travel in the winter holidays is possible. The fare rules do not state an expiry date.

A free stopover of up to 96 hours is allowed. You may make use of Qatar Airways’ stopover program and stay in Doha at very affordable rates in 4- or 5-star hotels.

Google Flights would be the best tool to find your preferred flight dates (instructions). After that, you can go ahead and book directly on or via our Travel-Dealz flight search to find cheapest online travel agent prices. We do, however, highly recommend that you book directly on Qatar’s website.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline 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 of receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

    This especially applies to 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.
  3. 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.

Getting to Izmir

There are some non-stop flights to Izmir (mostly with Pegasus or SunExpress). The flight duration, of course, depends on where you are flying from in Europe but usually ranges between 3 and 4.5 hours. Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from e.g. Madrid, Barcelona, Prague, Milan, Rome.

These are some of the non-stop routes we have found:
