Qatar Airways’ award-winning Frequent Flyer programme, Privilege Club, is delighted to provide its valued members with an exclusive offer as part of its latest Winter Shopping Collection.
From 20 – 31 December, Privilege Club members can enjoy up to 50 per cent discount when using their Qmiles on select products at Qatar Duty Free, both at Hamad International Airport (HIA) and at Oryx Galleria in Doha.
Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Ehab Amin, said: “We are delighted to announce this special winter promotion to our Privilege Club members, and to offer them a wide range of products in celebration of the winter holiday season.
“We are dedicated to providing our members with unique offers and benefits exclusive to them in collaboration with Qatar Duty Free, rewarding them for their loyalty towards our brand and enhancing their shopping experience every time they pass through our award-winning home and hub, Hamad International Airport, and our QDF stores. We invite all Privilege Club members to take advantage of this special seasonal offer.”
Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club launched its Qmiles reward programme in 2007 to offer its loyal passengers the opportunity to earn Qmiles when travelling on Qatar Airways, Oneworld® airlines, or any of the airlines’ partners. Qmiles has since served as another convenient means of payment at the award-winning Qatar Duty Free (QDF) outlets, located in both the departure and arrival halls of Hamad International Airport, and at Oryx Galleria in Doha.
In March 2018, Qatar Airways Privilege Club launched a refreshed brand identity, offering members a range of programme enhancements. Privilege Club members can now do all their account activities online, including purchasing award tickets using Qmiles, nominating family members to join their membership account, updating personal profiles and requesting services including cabin upgrades, excess baggage, date changes, refunds, and much more.
Qatar Airways Privilege Club was named ‘Best Rewards Programme’ among airlines in the region at the seventh annual FlyerTalk awards 2018, for the second year in a row. At the sixth annual FlyerTalk awards 2017, Privilege Club also won the “Outstanding Benefit” award.
QDF boasts more than 90 elegant boutiques and luxury, high-end stores, as well as more than 30 restaurants and cafés covering an area of 40,000 square metres at HIA, providing travellers with a world-class shopping experience under one roof. Luxury brands also available at the five-star airport include Tiffany & Co., Gucci, Bulgari, Hermès, Hugo Boss, Moncler, Rolex and Harrods.
Qatar Duty Free was awarded ‘Airport Retailer of the Year’ at the 2018 DFNI Global Awards. In April, the leading airport retailer was recognised at the PAX International Readership Award, when Qatar Airways won
‘Best In-Flight Duty Free Program’ for the Middle East and Africa, and was acknowledged as an industry leader for its outstanding in-flight duty free service, which is operated by Qatar Duty Free.
HIA the home of QDF, has already met a number of significant milestones in 2018, including being ranked fifth ‘Best Airport in the World’, fourth ‘Best Airport for Shopping’ and fifth ‘Best Airport for Dining’ at the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2018.
HIA is the only airport in the Middle East to be ranked in the world’s top 10 airports of 2018. At the annual awards ceremony, HIA also took home the title of ‘Best Airport in the Middle East’ for the fourth year in a row, and ‘Best Staff Service in the Middle East’ for the third year in a row.
