Australia to Europe is one of the longest flight trips in the world, so naturally, you want to be as comfortable as possible. There are a number of airlines that fly Business Class from major Australian cities to European destinations – however not all airlines are created equal and there are a number of things to consider.
First off, where would you like to stopover? Asia or the Middle East? This decision can affect anything from your holiday plans to how long your flight legs are on your way versus coming home. This will also influence which carriers you can choose from.
If you like the sound of an Asian stopover then you’re looking at a shorter (approximately 8 hour) flight to Asia on your way out of Australia, followed by a longer (around 12 hours) flight on to Europe. Carriers that go via Asia will stop off in a number of cities that all offer a great pit-stop holiday including Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo. Carriers that fly via Asia vary in their standards, the best being Singapore Airlines which offers some of the biggest Business Class seats in the world and award-winning service. Cathay Pacific is another luxury airline which stops over in Hong Kong, British Airways also flies via Singapore and for those who fancy a trip via Japan – Japan Airlines and Qantas do a deal where you fly the latter to Japan and the former on to Europe. Airlines agreements are also used by European carriers such as Air France, KLM, Swiss, Lufthansa and Finnair. All of these airlines will allow you to fly a flat-bed airline such as Qantas, Cathay Pacific or China Southern to your chosen Asian stopover destination before flying you on to Europe in one of their own aircraft. Singapore Airlines is the most expensive of the Asian carriers due to its ultra-luxe Business and First Class, often coming in at around $8,000, higher during peak holiday seasons. Cathay Pacific and British Airways are of similar costings these days. However, during sale season all of these airlines can decrease in price by almost $1,000. The European carriers such as Air France or KLM, Finnair, Austrian airlines, Scandinavian airlines as well as Asian carriers such as Japan Airlines or Thai Airways will usually price at around the $6,500 mark and are the alternatives for the more budget-conscious.
On the other hand, a flight via the Middle East will mean longer legs to and from Australia and your stopover destination (around 13 hours) but much shorter legs when it comes to your flights to and from the European continent (around 7 hours). The Middle East is a region that has come into its own as a tourism destination as cities such as Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha all try and out-compete each other as the best city to enjoy a stopover. Both Emirates and Qantas fly via Dubai and offer complimentary limousine transfers to their Business Class customers as well as some of the best Business Class flat-bed seats in the sky. Etihad Airways flies via Abu Dhabi, the close neighbor of Dubai, and offers their exclusive ‘Business Studio’ to their Business Class customers as well as complimentary limousine transfers depending on the fare. All three of these airlines are considered amongst the most luxurious in the world and will generally price around $9,000, though their prices will often drop when sale time comes around – often by more than $1,000. The other Middle Eastern flat-bed carrier is Qatar Airways. Flying via Doha, the capital of Qatar, this airline’s Business Class is often compared to First Class on other airlines and at usually a price of around $8,500 it is the most value for money of the Middle Eastern carriers.
There is a lot of choices to be made when it comes to booking your Business Class airfares to Europe, however you can always be rest assured that at FirstClass we will find you the best deal on only the best carriers.
