Fancy spending Christmas somewhere different this year?

Right now, oneworld airlines Malaysian and SriLankan are battling it out to bring you the best value business class fares from India to Japan, including over the Christmas period.

The cheapest prices we’ve found are from Bangalore to Tokyo with Malaysian airlines (via Kuala Lumpur) for just over INR 73,000 return:

For a little more, you could go for SriLankan, and take advantage of the long connection by enjoying a stopover in Colombo on the way out:

Both deals will see you fly a short-haul aircraft with recliner seats in business class on the first leg, though wide-body planes with fully-flat seats are offered on the second sector.

If you want to limit your time in the short-haul plane, go for a SriLankan ticket, as the Bangalore-Colombo sector is much shorter than the Bangalore-Kuala Lumpur leg.

Reservations for the SriLankan deal must be ticketed by March 31 while the fare rules for the Malaysian promo are as follows:

As you can see, the Malaysian deal allows you to travel anytime before January 31, 2021, with reservations to be ticketed on or before March 23, 2020 - meaning you've not got long.
