Privilege Club members can now redeem their Qmiles or Qcredits at the airport* for an upgrade to Business or First Class on Qatar Airways when they fly out of Doha.
Members will also be able to redeem for an upgrade for a companion travelling on the same flight with them.
Depending on the cabin configuration and seat availability, you will be able to redeem for:
- Single cabin upgrades (Economy to Business Class or Business to First Class)
- Two cabin upgrades (Economy to First), where Business Class is not operated on the flight
To redeem your Qmiles or Qcredits for an upgrade takes a few simple steps:
- Approach the check-in counter or customer service desk and present your membership card
- Should award seats be available, customer service agent verifies that you have enough Qmiles or Qcredits for the upgrade and then provides you an upgrade request form to fill
- Qmiles or Qcredits required for the upgrade is deducted from your membership account
- Boarding pass for the upgraded class is issued and handed over to you
This add-on feature is currently only available on Qatar Airways flights (including connecting flights) departing from Doha. Transiting passengers should check with the customer service desk at the airport. This feature will be expanded to other airports soon.
