Qatar Drops Fares for First Phuket Flights

Qatar Drops Fares for First Phuket Flights

Friday, October 8, 2010
INTRODUCTORY fares on Qatar Airways flights from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur are now on offer. The Doha-Phuket-Kuala Lumpur six-flights-a-week service begins on October 12.

Going from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur and back will cost you 3720 baht until November 11. Other prices being quoted are Phuket-Dubai from 16,350 baht, Phuket-Frankfurt 22,600 baht, Phuket-London 23,600 baht, Phuket-Moscow 21,900 baht, Phuket-Paris 23,100 baht.

Qatar's expansion into Thailand and beyond marks the beginning of a high season filled with new flights.

Qatar will be closely watched because the airline has the reputation for being one of the world's best, providing five-star service.

How the appeal of a quality flight compares with the value of low-cost airlines will be the key.

Qatar has announced plans to launch a third daily flight to Bangkok on November 1, with flights continuing on to Vietnam.

When I booked for next week to London return, they failed to mention there is a stopover at KL airport. I was informed and lead to believe the flight was direct to Doha from HKT. Shame as I've been flying with these guy for the past 6/7 yeas and more then once a year too, yet they deceive like that.

I wouldn't call it deception. That's the way it's promoted but I guess they expect people to quickly learn how the Doha-Phuket-KL links work.

Yea, your probably right Ed. I guess its just put down as marketing. Its sad the things people, or big companies more like, can get away with. I mean, if you hide something in a similar way to your mum when we were kids, you'd get a wallop! Yet its an everyday part of life now.

Do the quoted fares include taxes, surcharges etc.?

Editor Comment:

We were told the quoted fares include all charges but there are asterisks to make the point that they are subject to change. The mailout also says 'Book before October 30.' Best to confirm with Qatar or check the total before confirming online.
