  • Qatar Airways is a One World alliance member.
  • The onboard cuisine is “Dine on Demand” giving you the flexibility to eat when you are ready to eat.

The Qatar Airways Mixed Class to the UK and Europe

Qatar Airways is one of three airlines that offers a Mixed Class airfare from New Zealand to the UK and Europe.  This allows passengers to travel Business Class on the long flight from Auckland to Doha and then to save money by travelling Economy Class from Doha to the UK / Europe.  Other benefits of Mixed Class include:

We work with Business Class clients and Qatar Airways on a daily basis which allows us to to:

  • Save our busy clients time by investigate travel dates that meet their needs and fit with discounts available.
  • Provide comprehensive itineraries that can be held for up to 72 hours (as opposed to instant purchase online).
  • Hold discounted fare classes on “waitlist” and work with Qatar Airways to have the cheaper Business Class flights approved.

Should you require any date changes, special requests (such as allowances for allergies) or a stopover, we can also arrange these for you, saving time working with the Qatar Airways call centre.
