With fewer and fewer people travelling because of
the COVID19 outbreak, retaining that all important status with
your favourite airline is becoming increasingly difficult.
Qatar Airways’ loyalty programme, Privilege Club,
has decided to address this by offering members the opportunity to extend or reclaim their
tier status for memberships due to end before 31 January 2021.
Members will be able to retain their current
tier benefits such as upgrades, Shop & Pay with Qmiles, extra
baggage, lounge access, and more, for up to six months, with
personalised offers. Members can view their personalised offer at
qmiles.com and must login and register to claim it by 24 March
Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Simon
Talling-Smith, said, “As a result of the current situation
regarding coronavirus, which has led to travel restrictions and
flight reductions worldwide, many of our Privilege Club members
have not travelled as frequently as they usually would. Such restrictions are outside of our control as
an airline, but we do not want our members to lose their
hard-earned membership tier status as a result. That is why we are honouring the loyalty our members have shown us by offering to
extend their tier membership and retain their current benefits.
Offers will be personalised to each member to ensure that they
receive the benefit options most relevant to them. While we understand that some members may need or
wish to change their travel plans, we want to assure them that
when they do travel with Qatar Airways, they can travel with
confidence. Our fleet is one of the cleanest in the skies, and we
have introduced new policies to provide all customers with maximum
flexibility to suit their travel plans.”
Qatar Airways recently launched a new commercial
policy to allow all passengers that have booked or will book
flights to travel up to 30 June 2020 the flexibility to change
their travel plans free of charge by altering the dates of their
booking or exchanging their ticket for a travel voucher valid for
one year, up to three days prior to departure. This policy
includes award flights.
