Qatar Airways launched a one week sale today for Business and Economy Class tickets on routes primarily aimed at the European market for long haul travel to Asia and Australia.
Tickets must be purchased by Sunday April 19, 2015 for travel through December 10, 2015.
Qatar Airways Fabulous Fares for ticket purchases by April 19, 2015 and travel April 20 to December 10, 2015.
Edinburgh EDI – PER Perth, Australia economy O class round trip for 594 GBP = $895 USD.
An example of one discount rate is Edinburgh EDI to PER Perth, Australia in economy class round trip priced at 594.05 GBP = $895 USD for May 6-20, 2015 travel.
Etihad and Aer Lingus have this route priced even lower at $880, but I could not get the ticket to price low on Etihad outbound, although I did see under 300GBP for inbound.
Looks like Emirates, Etihad and Qatar are in their own fare war for air traffic between USA and Europe to Asia. For Americans that kind of routing is the longer way around the world via the Middle East. At fares this low, perhaps there will be an increase in traffic from the USA to Asia via the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
