Doha, Qatar, 2021-May-08 — /Travel PR News/ — Qatar Airways is bringing its award-winning services to the fingertips of Huawei smartphone users with the launch of its mobile App on AppGallery, Huawei’s official app distribution platform and one of the top three marketplaces globally.
The Qatar Airways mobile app is the ultimate travel companion for a seamless and safe journey. The airline collaborated with Huawei to offer mobile users in more than 170 countries an easier way to plan and manage their travel while limiting physical contact and interactions at all stages of their journey.
Innovative features enable flight bookings to over 1,500 destinations worldwide across Qatar Airways’ and partner airlines’ network. Passengers can check-in, use mobile boarding pass, select preferred seating and dining, access fast-track luggage, and get the latest travel information.
Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Thierry Antinori, said: “At Qatar Airways, we continue to enhance our digital products and champion innovation with our customers at the forefront of these developments, and with the current global situation, the need for contactless travel is greater than ever. The launch of our mobile app in collaboration with Huawei reflects our commitment to provide five-star services to our passengers across all stages of their journey.”
Mr Lu Geng, Vice President Middle East and Africa, Global Partnerships & Eco-Development, said: “As the heart of our in-house ecosystem, the Huawei AppGallery is constantly growing; and we are always working to offer the highest-quality apps for all of our users. Nowadays, people rely on smartphones to fulfil their travel-related needs, minimise contact and make things simpler, and the Qatar Airways App helps users achieve this.”
The Qatar Airways App feature, ‘My Trips’, displays the most relevant travel information on a personalised home screen for each passenger. App users will view Qatar Airways’ exclusive offers tailored to them, can use the mobile app’s camera and upload their travel documents or payment cards instead of manually entering information. Qatar Airways Privilege Club members book a trip using Cash + Qmiles, redeem Privilege Club Awards and manage their accounts.
