DOHA, QATAR – Qatar Airways has officially launched digital membership card for its Privilege Club members, providing them with a more convenient option to redeem Qmiles when travelling across the airline’s global network.
Available to all Privilege Club membership tiers – Burgundy, Silver, Gold and Platinum – the new digital membership card provides travellers with the same level of service as the physical card using their smart phones or tablets. Members can continue earning and redeeming Qmiles on products and services, priority check-in, extra baggage allowance, special discounts at Qatar Duty Free, accessing Qatar Airways’ lounges* and using partner airline services, award fee waivers for Gold and Platinum members, Flexi Awards and online redemption discounts.
Travellers can now present their membership card on a smart phone or tablet via the Qatar Airways App, mobile website, Apple Wallet, email or as a saved image on a portable device. The digital membership card will now supersede the physical card for all new Burgundy Privilege Club members and their nominated family members, providing them with immediate access to the many benefits of the Privilege Club programme.
Qatar Airways Vice President of CRM and Loyalty, Dr. Ian Di Tullio, said: “I’m thrilled to introduce our new digital membership card, providing the most accessible service for our Privilege Club members as they travel. We are always looking for new ways to provide our passengers with convenient service, giving them the very best travel experience, and our new digital membership card initiative allows our valued members immediate access to the benefits of the Privilege Club programme without having to wait for the physical card to arrive in the mail. Travellers can start earning and redeeming instantly when booking and travelling with Qatar Airways.”
