While Qatar Airways has been in the press for some negative reasons, the airline is also running a very generous promotion.
Qatar Airways will give away 100,000 tickets to healthcare workers from around the world.
There are some conditions to be aware of:
- The offer is valid from May 12 to May 18, 2020, then you need to book between May 12 and November 28, 2020, and then you need to travel between between May 26 and December 10, 2020 (based on outbound travel dates)
- Each eligible healthcare worker will receive two tickets they can use to travel anywhere that Qatar Airways flies worldwide; the healthcare worker has to be one of the travelers, and then they can bring a companion
- Tickets are limited to 100,000 and available on a first come first served basis; a daily allocation of codes will be distributed by country throughout the offer period
- Bookings have to be made at least 14 days before departure
- This is exclusively for travel in economy class
- While the fare and carrier imposed surcharges will be waived, passengers will still have to pay the taxes on the tickets
- Tickets will be fully flexible, with an unlimited number of destination or date changes allowed without any fees
- This is exclusively for medical frontline professionals, including doctors, medical practitioners, nurses, paramedics, lab technicians, clinical researchers, and pharmacists
- You must present your original medical identification at the airport check-in desk at the time of departure, and it must clearly state the occupation, as submitted on the offer registration form
The first round of tickets will be given away starting at 12:01AM Doha time on May 12, 2020 (which is 5:01PM ET, in under 30 minutes), so you’ll want to check the promotion page then to see if you can snag some eligible tickets.
Qatar Airways has continued to fly throughout the pandemic, and the airline plans to significantly ramp up operations as of next month — Qatar Airways plans to fly to 80 destinations by June 2020.
