Qmiles can be redeemed towards a range of rewards including award flights, cabin upgrades, extra baggage, over 350,000 hotels worldwide, or rent a car at over 20,000 locations with Hotel & Car Rewards, and more.
Last year, Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club was one of the first airline loyalty programmes to announce a tier extension offer of up to 12 months to its members and, earlier this year, Privilege Club honoured a further protection of tier status until 31 December 2021. Over the past year, Privilege Club continued to invest in redefining the programme, including cutting the number of Qmiles required to book award flights by up to 49 per cent as well as removing booking fees for award flights. It also revised its Qmiles policy so that when a member earns or spends them, their balance is valid for further 36 months.
The national carrier of the State of Qatar continues to rebuild its network, which currently stands at over 140 destinations. With more frequencies being added to key hubs, Qatar Airways offers unrivalled connectivity to passengers, making it easy for them to change their travel dates or destination as required.
