In all my years of travelling and hustling, Qatar Airways is having one of the best value airfare sales I’ve ever seen! Just received an email about this “The World Is Yours” global sale and even though I’m not looking for a holiday, I’m sure many of you are.
I’ve searched some of the fares below and the more popular places like New York City have had a slight spike already in the lowest fares since it’s been listed (a random date I searched from SG to NYC’s JFK airport leaving March 2015 and return April 2015 brought a total of around $1,800SGD, rather than the advertised $1,550 SGD), but all the fare offers are otherwise pretty legit. I guess the fare spikes would depend on the dates and popularity of the location you want to fly into.
Keep scrolling here for some quick fare snapshots and my low-down of what I’ve dug up about Qatar Airway’s new “World Promo”.
All flight sales end TODAY 21 SEP and are valid for travel from 21 Sep 2014 – 15 Jun 2015. All fare offers are for economy and business flights but I’ve decided to just include economy options for quick references and comparisons.
Fares flying from Singapore as part of the World Promo, starting from –
Singapore(SIN) – Zurich(ZRH) @ 1,015 SGD
Singapore(SIN) – Paris (CDG) @ 1,105 SGD
Singapore(SIN) – London(LHR) @ 1,330 SGD
Singapore(SIN) – New York(JFK) @ 1,550 SGD
Singapore(SIN) – Houston(IAH) @ 1,555 SGD
Singapore(SIN) – Miami(MIA) @ 1,675 SGD
Singapore(SIN) – Larnaca(LCA) @ 1,145 SGD
(Beautiful coastal city of Cyprus)
NOTE: Perhaps because I’m currently in Malaysia, and started doing random comparisons with flying from SG VS KL, but I realised that flying from KL with this promotion had A LOT more route options (possibly 50-60 over more available flights than flying from SG offered).
If you’re not hard-pressed for time and you would rather save hundreds of dollars on exotic fare deals like I would, you can get to KL by yourself and SEARCH/BUY FLIGHTS FROM KL INSTEAD OF SINGAPORE.
Singapore(SIN) – Kilimanjaro(JRO) @ 1,900 SGD
Kuala Lumpur(KUL) – Kilimanjaro(JRO) @ 3,588 MYR
***The flight from KL to Kilimanjaro is only about $1412 SGD, compared to the flight from SGD costing $500SGD more.***
Here are some other interesting deals out of many that could be useful for me and my friends –
Kuala Lumpur(KUL) – Dubai(DXB) @ 2,133 MYR
Kuala Lumpur(KUL) – Istanbul(IST) @ 2,132 MYR
Kuala Lumpur(KUL) – Paris (CDG) @ 2,312 MYR

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
