Qatar Airways Business Class India to USA for INR 1 Lakh / $1500

Qatar Airways is currently offering the Global Travel Boutique sale through January 19, 2018. Under the deal, the airline is offering a fantastic fare for the USA from Colombo which is available most times of the year, and prices at less than INR 1 Lakh in most cases.

But I told you India, right? See, we are incredibly lucky to have a country right next door to ourselves which is one of the cheapest places to buy a premium cabin ticket in the world. So, those flights from Colombo to Doha to Philadelphia are currently pricing at INR 90,000 for most parts of the year, excluding the summer months where it goes up 20-30K. Heck, the cheap fares are even available for next day departure right now like you can see below.

Let’s have a look at a sample date on Qatar Airways for a round trip. It prices out to LKR 216,000 which is INR 90,500.

On this fare, you get to fly the Qatar Airways B77W and the Qatar Airways A350-900, both modern products in their own right. And if you luck out, you may also get a plane fitted with the new Qatar Airways Q Suites, aptly termed as the First in Business.

Qatar Airways is known very well for its hospitality and product, and even if you have a long layover built in on Business Class, you can now arrive in Qatar on a Visa on Arrival, and also use the beautiful lounges of the airline if you choose not to go outside but stay indoors.

And yes, you can fly to Sri Lanka on cheap fares from almost all of India. Here is, for instance, a positioning flight from Bangalore to Colombo on IndiGo and Sri Lanka Airlines at INR 12K on an average for the round trip.


By way of comparison, a one-stop flight from India to Philadelphia would set you back by double that amount at the minimum for the same dates.

Similarly, there are other incredible fares on offer as well. I’d encourage you to check out the Qatar Airways website for all the places you want to go and see! Oh, and double miles if you book under the Global Travel Boutique sale, and you could even get your hands on a million miles.

Are you going to fly to the USA in Business Class then, or slum it out in Economy for a similar price?

  1. Hi Ajay –
    A couple of questions: as an Indian passport folder will immigration in india allow for me to go to Sri Lanka and from there to the US? And secondly, we as Indian passport holders are required to obtain an ‘electronic visa’ ($15) before heading to Sri Lanka – in that case do we need do spend a night in Colombo (both ways) or could we simply enter and leave Colombo in a matter of hours?

    Thank you!

    • @Tar_00 Immigration in India does not need to know about your flight ahead to the USA. You can just let them know about your flight to Colombo, which should be fine. As for leaving Colombo, you can leave as little as 30 minutes I guess. no one is asking!

  2. Dear Ajay,
