DOHA: Qatar Airways has launched a global sale for UK customers as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.
The carrier in fact began operations in early 1994, but considers 2022 to be its 25th birthday as the airline was relaunched in 1997 under the mandate of His Highness The Father Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. Flights to London also commenced that year.
Qatar Airways says that fares from the UK can be had from £359 return, with additional “special savings” on seat selection, extra baggage allowance, hotel bookings and car rental during a five-day period from January 4.
The fare sale period runs until January 10, 2022 at qatarairways.com/25Years (or via any local Qatar Airways sales office or preferred travel agents).
Customers joining the carrier’s Privilege Club using the code FLYQR22 will also receive a bonus 2,500 Qmiles in celebration of the anniversary.
Qatar Airways recently extended the status benefits within its Privilege Club loyalty programme, with all Silver, Gold and Platinum members whose tier status is due for renewal between now and December 2022 seeing their status extended until December 31, 2022.
