Qatar Airways Presents US$30,000 Prize To Inflight Duty Free Raffle Winner

London, UK – Qatar Airways has presented the winner of its latest inflight duty free raffle draw with a cheque for US$30,000.

Filipino national Mely Caunca, who lives in Fulham, south west London, was the lucky winner of the Mega Prize after entering a raffle onboard a Qatar Airways flight to Manila.

Upon collecting her prize at the Business Travel & Meetings Show in London, at which Qatar Airways was a key exhibitor, Ms Caunca declared she would put the money to a good cause.

“I am so delighted to have won this prize and I would like to use the money to help families who suffered when the typhoon hit my home country of the Philippines last year,” said Ms Caunca, who runs a cleaning and maintenance company in London.

“Many of my own relatives and friends were killed by this tragedy, so I would like to help my local community back home. My family and I had been building a chapel in my home town, but had to put it on hold because we had run out of money so I am thrilled that we can now use this money to finish the project.”

Qatar Airways’ Vice President Commercial Europe Paul Johannes, said: “I offer my personal congratulations to Mely. It is great news that she will be able to use the money towards such a good cause and will be able to finish a project that will help an entire community.”

Passengers were given the chance to enter the Qatar Airways’ inflight duty free raffle upon purchase of two or more perfumes. The winner was randomly chosen at a celebration draw at Doha International Airport last month.

In the current issue of Qatar Airways’ Inflight Duty Free magazine, passengers will receive a US$40 shopping voucher if they spend more than US$200 in a single transaction onboard. In addition, members of Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club loyalty programme can earn two Qmiles for every US$1 spent onboard.

Qatar Airways’ inflight duty free offers a wide selection of brands and product categories with an extensive collection of the latest fragrances, cosmetics, watches, jewellery and much more. As it is not possible to provide all products displayed in the Duty Free catalogue onboard at all times, due to space restrictions, Qatar Airways now offers passengers the chance to reserve their choice of Duty Free by pre-ordering at least 72 hours prior to their flight.

Qatar Airways was exhibiting at the two-day Business Travel & Meetings Show in London for the second year running. BTMS 2010 is the leading trade event in Europe for the corporate travel and meetings market.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of 79 aircraft to 85 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, South Asia, Far East, North America and Australasia. The airline will fly to 120 destinations by 2013, by which time its fleet size will also rise to 120 aircraft. Qatar Airways has ordered 80 Airbus A350s, 24 Airbus A320 Family of aircraft, 60 Boeing 787s and 32 Boeing 777s, with deliveries of the latter having started in November 2007. Qatar Airways has aircraft orders for more than 220 jets worth over US$40 billion and is one of the customers of the twin-deck Airbus A380 ‘super jumbos’ with five on order and scheduled for delivery from 2012, by which time the New Doha International Airport would have opened.
