LONDON – Qatar Airways (QR) has launched a global program exclusive to students worldwide, coined Student Club. The project is powered by the airline’s loyalty program, QR Privilege Club, and offers a range of benefits curated for students to support them throughout their educational journey.
The airline’s new program for students is part of its wider transformation of its QR Privilege Club, which is being redefined to ensure that passengers are rewarded for their continued loyalty and receive the very best offers and benefits.
Members of Student Club will enjoy great savings and bespoke benefits such as special fares on flights, extra baggage allowances, the flexibility to change the dates of their flight, complimentary Super Wi-Fi onboard, and more.
They will also be automatically enrolled to QR Privilege Club, unlocking even greater rewards, and will receive a tier upgrade as a graduation gift as well as the opportunity to earn 5,000 Qmiles if they refer a friend to Student Club.
As members of the Privilege Club, students will earn Qmiles when traveling with QR or any of the airline’s partners. Students can also earn Qmiles by using QR credit cards and when shopping with Privilege Club retail and lifestyle partners.
Qmiles can be redeemed for a range of exciting benefits including award flights, upgrades or extra baggage on QR, shopping in Qatar Duty Free as well flights and hotel stays with partners.
Statement from Qatar Airways
Akbar Al Baker, QR CEO, said, “Our brand new Student Club is designed specifically with students’ needs in mind. Travel is an important part of their life, with many choosing to study abroad for the duration of their university career or for a semester.”
The CEO added, “We also know that long university vacations are a wonderful opportunity for students to visit family or friends or simply to explore the world. Having listened to the needs of our current student passengers, we are delighted to help them to aim for the skies with our Student Club.”
