This is the first time I have seen that Qatar Airways is offering this kind of promotion, a book more, save more. It is similar to their 2-for-1 companion offer, but this one is valid if you are 3 passengers traveling together.
Again, it offers some great discounts on certain destinations from certain cities, and you have to check fares from your country to see what is on offer, or even change countries if you do not mind doing a positioning flight to get the fares you are looking for.
For the travel festival Qatar Airways have announced some really good deals, there are discounts on most destinations (and you get an additional 15% discount if you use the Visa Promotion), and the offers varies from country to country.

On the 11th of June an unauthorized drone was observed close to Dubai airport (DXB) forcing the airport to close for arrivals and departures for 69 minutes until it was deemed safe to resume operations again.
There are strict rules in the UAE for the use of unmanned drones, and no-one are allowed to fly closer than 3 nautical miles (5 kilometers) from any airports.
Now that Ramadan has been announced, it is time to remember what you can expect when travelling in the Middle East.
First of all, the general rule for everyone is that eating, smoking and drinking during daylight hours is prohibited during Ramadan.
However, all transit areas of the airports are exempted, as all travelers traveling more than 80 kilometers in one day are exempted from the fasting. You can therefore expect all food outlets to be serving food and drinks during Ramadan, and in the UAE you should also be able to order alcoholic beverages, although they will probably not be on display.
