Qatar Flights was founded in 1993, but it didn’t launch its own frequent flyer program until 2010. Originally called Guest Rewards, the Qatar Plane frequent flyer program has many features that makes it stand out from its competitors’ programs. To fully take advantage of the program, though, you need to know exactly how it works—and this guide will give you all the information you need to do just that!
How to sign up
Signing up for Qatar’s frequent flyer program is easy—just search for Qatar Airlines flights online, enter your information, and choose your frequent flyer number. If you’re already a member of another airline’s frequent flyer program, you can often link your account with Qatar Airways Reservations so that miles or points earned will apply to both programs. You can also sign up using one of Qatar’s credit cards. This gives you Gold Membership, which means you get double points on all flights. These points don't transfer into any other airlines' programs but can be redeemed through Qmiles—Qatar's version of frequent flyer miles—for Qatar Aiways flight tickets and upgrades only.
How to earn points faster
There are several ways you can earn points faster. Here are a few tips on how to do so: If you’re flying Qatar Airways tickets (or its partner airline, Qantas), do your best to book your flights through Qatar Airways online booking or Qantas. Booking these flights directly with the airline is an easy way to earn points faster, and you’ll also get a perk-filled experience out of it. If you fly Qatar flights, expect perks like complimentary drinks, fast check-in lines, extra baggage allowance and access to frequent-flyer lounges worldwide.
