Qatar Airways has expanded its corporate travel
rewards programme for small and medium-sized businesses globally
following successful trials in the airline’s home market of Qatar.
Named Qbiz, the rewards programme makes it easier for
companies with limited travel budgets to maximise their savings
when travelling with Qatar Airways. The programme allows companies
and employees to accumulate Qmiles through the airline’s Privilege
Club loyalty programme.
The global roll-out, unveiled
simultaneously at the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget and
Business Travel Market in London, allows both the individual and
the company to accumulate Qmiles for any given flight. The
accumulated miles can be used to redeem free flights and secure
upgrades on Qatar Airways.
Privilege Club members travelling on business will continue to
earn Qmiles and membership status in their own accounts, their
companies will also be able to earn Qmiles for the same trip and
redeem them on subsequent Qatar Airways flights,” said Qatar
Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker. “Qbiz is an exciting corporate rewards travel programme
developed specifically for small and medium-sized businesses to
help them manage their budgets more cost effectively.”
Businesses looking to join Qbiz can do
so online on Qatar Airways’ website.
Once enrolled, companies receive a personalised Qbiz account
number and a Qbiz code, which they can use to accumulate miles
when making bookings. Every dollar spent on Qatar Airways flights
will earn the company Qmiles. The individual traveller is also
entitled to collect Qmiles on the same booking when checking-in
for their flights.
