DOHA, Qatar, 21 May 2021: Qatar Airways Privilege Club sealed
a deal with Grab in Southeast Asia by converting their Qmiles to GrabRewards
points to pay for deliveries and services.
Through the two-way partnership, 1 Qmile can be converted
into 1 GrabRewards point and used to pay for Grab rides or orders. Privilege
Club members can also convert 1,200 GrabRewards points to 100 Qmiles, enabling
members to top up points towards their travel goals. Benefits include flight
rewards, cabin upgrades, extra baggage and Cash + Qmiles.
Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori,
said: “This new partnership with Grab allows our members to tap into food
delivery, ride-hailing and cashless payment services with their Qmiles. This
partnership is another example of Privilege Club’s commitment to reward all
travellers, both frequent and occasional.”
Last year, Privilege Club was one of the first to honour
their members’ loyalty with a tier extension of up to 12 months. Earlier this
year, Privilege Club further extended tier status until 31 December 2021.
Over the past year, Privilege Club continued to invest in
redefining the programme, including cutting the number of Qmiles required to
book award flights by up to 49%. A revised Qmiles policy ensures that when a
member earns or spends points, the balance is valid for 36 months.
Airways Privilege Club is the official frequent flyer programme of the FIFA
World Cup Qatar 2022™ and recently won a Frequent Traveller award for ‘Best
Rewards Program’ in the Middle East, Asia, and Oceania regions for 2020.
