Qatar Airways Privilege Club members and British Airways Executive Club members are now able to earn miles, and can begin redeeming miles as of 1st October 2013 on each other’s flights.
Privilege Club is Qatar Airways way of saying thank you to its customers for choosing to fly with the airline. Members enjoy a range of exclusive privileges and benefits designed to make travelling even more rewarding.
“The benefit partnering with British Airways brings to our customers is the added opportunity to earn Qmiles,” said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer. Privilege Club members may redeem their Qmiles for award tickets, excess baggage or merchandise through Qatar Duty Free or Oryx Galleria in Doha.
“This Frequent Flyer Programme partnership also gives British Airways customers an opportunity to attain credit for destinations throughout the entire Qatar Airways network,” continued Al Baker. “Passengers of both airlines traveling to and from the UK, Africa, Australia and Asia now have more flexibility and frequency when they route trip through Doha as Qatar Airways flies five flights daily to London Heathrow Airport.”
Qatar Airways Privilege Club offers members exciting ways to redeem Qmiles. With flight awards to over 300 destinations served by Qatar Airways and its airline partners, passengers can also use Qmiles as a convenient means of payment for shopping at Qatar Duty Free located at the departures, arrivals and the Premium Terminal of Doha International Airport and Oryx Galleria, Doha, Qatar.
British Airways Executive Club members can collect “Avios” when booking flights or shopping with the airline’s partners. Avios can be used for flights, hotels and “members only” special offers and promotions.
