Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines brings us today a deal on business class from Budapest to Madagascar starting at €1,710 (~HUF 661,687). Departures are between May and December including summer vacations.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Turkish Airlines with your selected flight dates. You can also check what OTAs have to offer with Skyscanner, as they sell these tickets up to €70 cheaper.
First, you will fly in a Turkish Airlines Airbus A320 family with a 2-2 configuration, which includes a free middle seat, typical of European business class. For your intercontinental journey, you will fly in a Turkish Airlines Airbus A330 with a 2-2-2 configuration. This flight includes a one-hour technical stop in Mauritius each way
Search & Book
This deal doesn’t have an expiration date. A minimum stay of three days or a Saturday overnight stay, and a maximum stay of twelve months applies. Available dates are between May and December.
You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on Turkish Airlines’ website, but you can find cheaper prices with Skyscanner. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides.
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.
