Qatar Airways Black Friday Sale Includes Return Flights to Maldives from €680!

Maldives-with-Qatar-Airways

Fly to the Maldives from €680 return, and Zanzibar from just €535 return, with Qatar Airways Black Friday Sale.

Since my trip to the Maldives last week I have had many requests for prices, so I am delighted to showcase Qatar Airways Black Friday offers, which include amazing prices to Maldives, South Africa, Australia and lots more. All Black Friday sale fares are available to book from Friday 26th November.

Qatar Airways Black Friday

I have been a big fan of Qatar Airways since I flew with them to Malaysia in 2018, and I am not a bit surprised that they have been voted the world’s best airline six times – an achievement held by no other airline.

They have also won the world’s best business class, best business class seat, business class lounge, and catering. I could go on and on, but it might be easier to read my review of Qatar Airways service here and see the highlights from my recent trip with Qatar Airways here.

It was not only Qatar Airways business class that impressed me. Economy class passengers can enjoy a generous baggage allowance , free seat selection and unlimited drinks on board – all included in the cost! And that’s not all – Qatar Airways has over 4,000 entertainment options to choose from.

Children are well catered for too, with kids traveller packs and children’s meals available. Wi-Fi is available on selected flights and lounge access is available to purchase – see more here.

The Maldives is on most travel bucket lists, but it may surprise you that it can be affordable, especially with airfares such as these! Choose economy class from just €702 return, or the world’s best business class from €2269 return.
