Qatar cuts Qmiles redemption prices for Ramadan
Qatar Airways' Privilege Club frequent flyer loyalty programme is rewarding its members with a 50% discount on award travel to selected destinations during the holy month of Ramadan.
Designed to encourage members to take a break during the fasting month, the offer is spread across a number of Middle East routes operated by Qatar Airways from its Doha hub. The offer is valid for all Privilege Club members, but only for return flights in economy class, and travel must be completed by 15th October.
Discounted award flights Weighing in at the discounted rate of 3,000 Qmiles, members can now book award tickets for flights between Doha and Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi, Doha and Kuwait, Doha and Muscat, and Doha and Bahrain. For 7,500 Qmiles members can book flights between Doha and Damascus, or Doha and Tehran. Finally, for 10,000 Qmiles, flights can be booked between Doha and Beirut, or Doha and Luxor.
Qatar Airways is offering double Qmiles on its new Doha to Nagpur route, which was launched on 23rd September 2007. The offer, which is valid until 30th November, is available on the twice-weekly services to the central Indian city, which is Qatar Airways' seventh destination in India (the others being Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Trivandrum and Cochin).
Adding value According to Qatar Airways' CEO, Akbar Al Baker, the airline has won a tremendous amount of support over the years from members of Privilege Club, and extra rewards are a sign of the airline's appreciation: "From time to time, we introduce promotions as a thank-you to our Privilege Club members." The Privilege Club programme recently won no less than eight awards at the annual US-based Freddie Awards.
Other new routes are also planned in the near future. Starting from 27th November the carrier will operate four flights each week to the Swedish capital Stockholm, and daily scheduled services will begin to the western Indian city of Ahmedabad on 12th December.
