In recognition of their hard work and dedication, we offered 100,000 healthcare heroes complimentary return tickets on board Qatar Airways flights. Our #ThankYouHeroes initiative reached essential medical professionals around the globe. Here are some of their stories.  

Amy, Nurse

Amy is a Nurse and has been working very hard from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. She said:

“I had heard about the generous donation of Qatar Airways tickets and chanced my luck on the first night of the offer. I was patient and waited about twenty minutes before the page allowed me to submit my application, once that happened it said I would be emailed within 48 hours if I had been successful. Sure enough, exactly 48 hours later I was lucky enough to be one of the thousands who had been successful in getting tickets!

“It means the world to me to have this once in a lifetime opportunity given to me! Working as a nurse during the pandemic these last few months has been a challenging experience for my colleagues and I. We work hard and try our best each and every day for our patients, so knowing I will be able to use these tickets to relax and unwind later in the year is something I’m really looking forward to.

“I plan on going with my partner Tom, I’m not 100% sure where we’re going to travel to yet. I’ve been researching so many countries (Japan, India, Africa, New Zealand to name a few) and it’s so hard to narrow just one down but I know wherever we go it will be just amazing!”

Ali, Pediatric Cardiac Surgeon

Medic Heroes

Ali Shan currently lives and works in Karachi, Pakistan, as a pediatric cardiac surgeon, and his wife is a cardiology trainee at the same hospital. He said:

“This is a very unique opportunity, I have been to many places worldwide but never experienced flying with Qatar Airways.

 “My wife and I are both relocating to London, UK, where we will both be working as trained doctors. This is a huge step in our lives and we are very fortunate to have received a free ticket from Qatar Airways. We got the ticket with a stroke of luck in the middle of the night while trying to submit the form.

“No words can express what this means to us.”

Irina, Pediatrician

Irina’s daughter, Anna, spotted our giveaway online and, as a surprise for her mother, registered successfully on her behalf on the fourth day of trying. She said:

“My mom has been a pediatrician for more than 20 years now. She loves her job no matter what, and her patients love her. But I know how hard it is for her to work, especially now. It's a huge risk, which she takes with a smile on her face.

“My friends shared a link to Qatar Airways’ website, where they had announced their promotion for healthcare professionals. I didn't have any doubts that I am going to try registering my mother. I knew she would not have done it herself, as she is almost 60 years old, and it would have been difficult for her to manage.

“When I received a message with the code, I almost started crying of joy. I wanted it so much for my mother because I really believed that she deserved it. I called her afterwards and told her about it, and even though she is not a very emotional person, I could hear the happiness in her voice.

“I really want her to get some rest, so I think we will go to Thailand or Indonesia for a short vacation once things return to normal. She has never visited Asia, but I’m sure she will like it. Thank you for giving us hope Qatar Airways.”

Felipe, Anesthesiologist

Felipe is an anesthesiologist and has been working in both public and private hospitals that have admitted COVID-19 patients. He said:

“My wife and I have been together for 13 years. She is a nurse and the executive director of a medical clinic that focuses on serving the less fortunate.

“We were planning to celebrate our anniversary in April with our first trip outside of South America – one that we had carefully planned for 6 months. However, the pandemic meant that our long-awaited trip could not happen. Since then, we have been working hard to save lives.

“We are very happy with the gift from Qatar Airways! The possibility of travelling again has brightened our days and renewed our hopes. The opportunity to travel to Japan with Qatar Airways is undoubtedly a dream come true! Thank you, Qatar Airways!”

Talisa, Doctor

Talisa is a doctor who works on an intensive care ward, looking after patients with COVID-19. She said:

“I applied for the tickets at the start of a night shift after being told about the great initiative by a colleague. Having a holiday to look forward to when this is over is very motivating and I was very excited going into my night shift after being notified that I'd won the tickets!

“I haven't decided where I'd like to go yet, but I plan on going with my best friend, who is also a doctor. We both really enjoy traveling and are big food lovers, so perhaps somewhere famous for its cuisine, like Japan.”

Thank you from our GCEO, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker
