Dreaming of being on an exotic beach a world away watching the sun go down? Let five-star Qatar Airways take you there, fly from Houston-Intercontinental to Phuket, Thailand for $651 roundtrip this fall or winter.
Searching Qatar's website, I found seats departing Houston IAH on Tuesday, November 12, with return flights leaving from Phuket HKT on Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
Travel at this price opens up in late August and is available through the end of booking calendar in February 2020. Departures are mostly available on Mondays through Wednesdays with return flights open Sunday through Wednesday. A 7-day minimum stay is required and peak holiday dates are blacked out.
This Economy fare includes 2 pieces of checked luggage, each not exceeding 23kg/50 lbs. Standard carry-on luggage must not exceed 7kg/15lbs.
You may choose your own assignments from standard economy class seats that are available during or after booking.
There are no other fares close in price to this deal, other airlines offering this city pairing cost roughly $300 more.
Most long layovers can be avoided, and I was able to find many trips with short connections such as the sample dates listed above. But you should take note that on some itineraries an extended daytime stopover in Doha (DOH) may be required. Qatar offers city tours at low prices, and some layovers may even qualify for a free hotel stay. Make the best of it and treat it as a 2-for-1 deal!
