Privilege Club members enjoy family day out as Qatar Airways announces additional flights over the summer period

Kuwait City: In celebration of an additional nine weekly summer flights from Kuwait and winning the Best Rewards Programme for the Middle East, Asia and Oceania region in the sixth annual FlyerTalk Awards, Qatar Airways invited Platinum members of its Privilege Club to enjoy a day of fun with their children at KidZania in Grand Avenues. The family fun day recognised the Platinum members of Qatar Airways’ Frequent Flyer Programme, in appreciation for their continued loyalty.

From 15 June 2017 – just in time for the summer peak travel season – Qatar Airways will introduce an additional nine weekly flights from Kuwait to Hamad International Airport, the airline’s award-winning hub in Doha, Qatar. With the new frequency, Qatar Airways’ weekly service from Kuwait will increase to 65 flights, giving holidaymakers even more options for making their summer travel plans.

Qatar Airways Privilege Club has delivered a number of programme improvements over the last year, including the introduction of digital membership cards, enabling members to book award flights via the Qatar Airways App, and allowing last-minute upgrades using Qmiles. This among other initiatives were instrumental in getting this award based on votes by our discerning members and those from the FlyerTalk community.”

Qatar Airways Vice President Middle East and Pakistan, Mr. Ish Jalal said: “With 65 flights a week between Kuwait City and Doha throughout the summer, our passengers in Kuwait will have flexibility when it comes to choosing the flights that best suit their travel needs. Qatar Airways connects travellers to almost every corner of the globe, offering award-winning service and a number of exciting travel enhancements, such as free visas to enter Qatar and the option to turn a layover into a stayover in any number of Doha’s premium hotels. We’re very pleased to combine the announcement of our new Kuwait frequency with a celebration of our Platinum Privilege Club members’ loyalty to Qatar Airways.”
