Qatar Airways have an exceptionally good deal for flights out of Manchester at the moment, heading all the way to Auckland. Flights are pricing up at around £1,360 (give or take) and there’s quite wide availability too.
Head over to Qatar Airways website to book.
I’ve found flights in September for example with this outbound segment…
And the following return segment….
Which prices up in total to around £1,360.
Qatar Airways have one of the best business class products in the world with the Q-Suites, however this is only slowly being rolled out across the fleet. Currently both flights would not be operated by non-Q-Suites aircraft, however their product is still outstanding. I reviewed the 777-200LR product in this post.
Update 21:05 – there’s also fares from London to Hong Kong for around £1,420. That’s also an excellent deal especially as it’s from flights from Heathrow and Gatwick.
What is also interesting about these fare sis that they aren’t appearing on ITA Matrix, nor does there appear to be a published fare basis available via the GDS.
Either way, if you know you need to head down-under, or to Hong Kong, this is about as good as a far is going to get from the UK, so would suggest booking as soon as possible, via Qatar’s website.
