March 23: Qatar Airways has announced that its Privilege Club has officially adopted Avios as its reward currency, opening up a world of new opportunities for members travelling across the airline’s extensive network of almost 150 destinations.
This partnership offers a combination of benefits, including a wide range of greater guaranteed award seats and competitive prices on Qatar Airways flights, the airliner said in a statement.
According to the airline company, its Privilege Club members will enjoy 10,000 bonus Avios in Business or First Class, or 5,000 bonus Avios in Economy Class, when they book their next flight using Cash + Avios within 31st March 2022 using the promo code QRAVIOS.
This offer is only available on qatarairways.com and the mobile App, the statement added. Further details are available on the company’s website.
According to the company, this alliance between oneworld partners brings endless exciting benefits for Qatar Airways Privilege Club members, offering British Airways Executive Club members flexibility in combining their Avios accounts and facilitating unlimited transfers of their Avios balances between accounts, without balance limitations or transfer fees.
“The power to combine Avios also allows members the chance to spend and redeem on both Qatar Airways and British Airways award flights, available on Qatarairways.com and the mobile App,” the statement said, adding, “Members also now have the benefit of accessing more rewards with unique spending opportunities on a wider range of flight award options. Members who have previously enjoyed using the recently enhanced Cash + Qmiles option, can continue enjoying the same reward benefits with Cash + Avios, giving members the power to part-pay their flight bookings on qatarairways.com and the mobile app. Avios can also be used towards a range of rewards including award flights, cabin upgrades, extra baggage and much more.”
The airline company further said that its current Privilege Club members will experience a seamless transition into the loyalty programme’s new reward currency, Avios, with their existing Qmiles balances changing automatically to Avios on a 1:1 ratio basis.
“While Privilege Club is opening a new world of rewards, familiar Privilege Club features such as Qpoints and Qcredits will remain unchanged. Additionally, the amount of Avios for award flight redemptions will remain the same as it previously did with Qmiles.”
Qatar Airways said it offers flights to many parts of the world including five destinations in Australia, 12 in the United States, 21 in the Middle East, 28 in Africa, 35 in Europe and 42 in Asia.
