Oneworld member Finnair is currently offering superbly priced Business Class seats between London Heathrow and Chongqing, in China. What’s more, at the time of writing there is excellent availability.
Ignore the headline rate in the graphic above. These fares are currently widely available at a remarkable £870 all-in return. Flying from London, that really is great value.
You need to book by 30 April 2015, for travel from today (25 March 2015) until 30 June 2015. Tickets must be purchased at least 14 days before departure and availability is limited (although currently very good), so you may need to move fast on this one.
Notably, Finnair is actually offering some (ordinarily) decent value on Business Class flights to other China destinations in the same period, including Beijing at £1,669 return and Shanghai at £1789 return. Not bad prices, but blown away by the £870 Chongqing return.
But where is Chongqing?
A valid question. It’s pretty much bang in the centre of China, and a massive (and fast growing) metropolis. While there may be limited appeal to Chongqing alone, you are then ideally placed for onward exploration of China, with cheap flights (or road/rail trips) available to the more obvious destinations like Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
As an added bonus, you will also earn double Finnair Plus miles on flights between 1 April and 31 May 2015: you simply need to sign up for this offer here.
As noted above, availability of the £870 fare is currently excellent. Here is a random sample of availability in May 2015:
If you wish, you can even combine this offer with the Hilton mainland China sale – offering 25% off hotels in China, including the Hilton Chongqing.
Is Finnair Business Class any good?
Having recently flown it from the Far East to the UK, I can confirm that Finnair Business Class is an excellent product. Find out more for yourself, here.
If you fancy a visit to China at an absolutely bargain price, this really is a fantastic opportunity. Finnair is a Oneworld member, so you can even earn Avios and BA Tier points on the flight, should you wish.
