Philippines: €1,523 Qatar Airways Business Class from Riga

Qatar Airways Business Class 840x630

Oneworld carrier Qatar Airways has a rare offer for its business class with departure from Latvia. Roundtrips from Riga to Manila with two layovers start at €1,523. Because QR does not serve Riga directly, a second stopover in Copenhagen or Helsinki is necessary before heading to Doha. AirBaltic or Finnair operate these short feeder flights.

Qatar Airways rarely offers sales like this from airports it doesn’t serve.
