Oneworld member Qatar Airways has an attractive offer for business class customers between Amsterdam and Bali, offering discounted tickets as cheap as €1,483. All trips require a layover and change of planes in Doha. You can add a stopover or enjoy Qatar Airways’ Al Mourjan Lounge. There’s availability until July 2021.
Currently, Qatar states that the flight between Amsterdam and Doha even has Qatar’s new QSuite business class – but that may change.
Our availability calendar shows you all possible flight dates at the lowest fare for trips up to two weeks. It will forward you to qatarairways.com, which is the safest place to purchase your tickets.
A Boeing 777-300ER will operate flights between Amsterdam and Doha. The onward flight will be either another 777 or a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
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.
Search & Book
The Fare rules do not state when this deal will expire. The only restrictions given is a travel duration between 5 days and 1 month. As usual for a Qatar Airways offer, a stopover in Doha is free of charge. At the time of writing, you can find available dates from January until July 2021.
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.
Qatar Airways issues tickets in booking class R. While most Oneworld frequent flyer programs will award you 100% travelled distance, you can earn up to 225% depending on your status. The basic mileage without tier bonuses roughly looks like this:
- 31,920 on Finnair Plus
- 19,830 on Qatar Airways Privilege Club
- 19,830 on MEA Cedar Miles
- 19,830 on Malaysia Airlines Enrich
- 19,830 on Royal Air Maroc Safar Flyer
- 19,830 on GOL Aéreos Smiles
- 19,830 on Japan Airlines Mileage Bank
- 19,830 on British Airways Executive Club
- 19,830 on S7 Airlines Priority Club
- 19,830 on Asia Miles
- 19,830 on Iberia Plus
- 15,860 on LATAM Pass
- 15,860 on Bangkok Airways FlyerBonus
- 15,860 on American AAdvantage
- 15,860 on Royal Jordanian Royal Club
- 15,860 on SriLankan FlySmiles
Each flight segment is worth 140 tier points in British Airways‘ Executive Club. This amounts to 560 tier points in total. You need 600 tier points and 4 flight segments in British Airways or Iberia to gain Oneworld Sapphire status – a cheap economy ticket connecting in London or Madrid in addition to this flight should do the trick.

Information & Tips for Bali
Bali is probably the most popular holiday island in Indonesia. While the metropolises of the country are more interesting for tourists that like the hustle and bustle, Bali offers a lot of recreation options with beaches and the rainforest.
Bali is one of the most expensive destinations in Asia when it comes to airfares from Europe. Here you have to be prepared to pay €400 – €600 for a return flight. Everything under €500 is an excellent price for Bali.
The Best Time to Visit
From May to October Bali is under the influence of the monsoon. It brings hot and dry air and a lot of rain. Therefore, the dry season is the best travel time for Bali. Those who come to the island between May and October can look forward to good holiday weather without inconveniences.
From/to the airport
The main airport on the island is Denpasar. The resorts and hotels, however, are mostly further out. Many hotels offer transfers for their guests. Otherwise, it is advisable to take a taxi or organize a transfer yourself.
