Bangkok & Phuket: €1,846 Qatar Airways Business Class from Rome & Milan (Lounge Access Adds €500)

Qatar Airways Business Class Kabine

Oneworld member Qatar Airways rarely offers discounted business class tickets these days. Their current offer for €1,846 business class rides from Italy to Thai destinations Bangkok and Phuket are as close to a bargain as it gets. Sadly, it is a business light fare, that does not include lounge access. Adding it would raise the price by roughly €500. Departures are available between July to May 2025.

Here are the routes you can take advantage of this deal:

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Qatar Airways’ website with your selected flight dates.


All discounted flights are operated by Boeing 787-9 or Airbus A350-900 aircraft. It seems like the fare rules exclude flights operated with Qsuite equipped aircraft.

Search & Book

According to the fare rules, these tickets are on sale until September 30, 2024 without a travel period. You must stay at least four days at your destination to get the lowest fare, while you may not stay longer than three months. Departures are available between July and May 2025.

Google Flights previews available flight dates reliably. We recommend purchasing expensive premium tickets directly from the airline.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Information & Tips for Thailand

Thailand is an increasingly popular holiday destination for Europeans – both beach and party tourists get their money’s worth in the South Asian tropical state.
Whether Bangkok, Koh Samui or Phuket, Thailand offers multi-faceted cities and quiet beaches. Also, the country is always easy to reach from Europe. Especially to Bangkok, there is almost always at least a good deal!

Best Time to Visit

While hot summer temperatures prevail the whole year long in tropical Thailand, the best travel time is definitely the winter from November to February. Thanks to the northwest monsoon it doesn’t get warmer than 33 degrees. In summer the temperatures can quickly reach 40 degrees. The rainy season also starts in June and will last until October – high humidity is what you’ll have to prepare for!

Entry & Visa

Most EU citizens do not need a visa for stays up to a length of 30 days. The entry permit can be extended by another 30 days before expiration by local immigration authorities.


The national currency of Thailand is the Baht (THB) which is divided into Satang. One Euro is about 40 THB.

Information & Tips for Bangkok

Bangkok is both the capital and the largest metropolis of Southeast Asian Thailand. We often have reasonable offers to share with you. No matter if in Economy, Business or First Class – you can almost always find bargains for flights to Bangkok! Also, even luxurious 5-star hotels are available at excellent prices. Just some reasons why you shouldn’t miss Bangkok!

From the airport to the city center

Suvarnabhumi Airport is connected to the city center by train. Trains run between 06:00 and 23:59 approximately every 15 minutes and the journey takes 24 minutes. A taxi ride costs about 400 Baht and takes, depending on the traffic, 30 minutes to more than an hour.

Information & Tips for Phuket

Phuket is a southern province and also the largest island of Thailand in Southeast Asian. While Bangkok is more of a tourist destination, Phuket offers a lot of recreational options on the beach and is located in the Indian Ocean rather than the Gulf of Thailand.

Although Phuket is not always as easy to reach as Bangkok and it will often take an additional layover to get there, you can combine your beach holiday with a city trip to Bangkok. You can first book your flights to Bangkok and then separate (cheap!) flights from Bangkok to Phuket if you really can’t find a good deal from Europe.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to travel is from November to February. During this time it is dry and comparatively cool but of course still ideal for a beach holiday. The rainy season runs from mid-May to October.

From/to the airport

From the airport to different cities/resorts on the island, it is best to take a taxi (or Uber). Bus connections are cheaper but also much slower.

      Hi Eric! While this deal is not necessarily the cheapest option to fly from Bangkok to Rome in Business Class, it is a fairly uncommon price for doing so with Qatar Airways.

  2. Leonidas Christou says:

    Hi Felix,

    Thank you for that! Managed to booked last Saturday this one.
    Perfect for 2 people. But if you attempt to add a 3rd person to the booking, return flight goes from 939€ to 1180€ (business classic)
    Also note that same offer stand for MXP-BKK or HKT
