Written by:
Qatar Airways is giving teachers around the globe the chance to win return flights to any of its destinations as a ‘thank you’ for their vital work educating young people throughout the pandemic.

As part of the ‘World Teacher’s Day’ celebration, Qatar Airways is giving away 21,000 free tickets to teachers in over 75 countries it operates in.

Each country will receive a daily allocation of tickets, staggered over three days until 3.59am (Doha time, 1:59am UK time) on Thursday 8 October with winners based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Teaching professionals such as teaching assistants, tutors, primary and secondary teachers, pre-school and Early Years Practitioners as well as English as a second language (ESL) teachers can register via the Qatar Airways Thank you Teachers link by submitting a form to receive a promotional code.

The giveaway opens each day from 4am (Doha time, 2am UK time) and those who successfully register will receive one economy class return tickets to any of its destinations including New York, Muscat, the Maldives and Sydney.

They will also receive a voucher for 50% off a future return ticket which can be used by them or for family or friends.

The tickets are valid until 30 September 2021 and with its flexible booking policy, tickets issued up to 31 December 2020 are valid for two years, allowing the holder unlimited date changes or the option to exchange them for a travel voucher offering 10% extra.

A valid employer ID must be presented at the airport at the point of check in. Passengers will need to pay airport taxes.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We at Qatar Airways are incredibly grateful for the commitment and hard work of teaching professionals around the world who continue to educate our young people in these times of uncertainty. We know that it has not been an easy task, yet teachers have been incredibly resourceful, turning to online learning and other methods.

“As the largest airline flying consistently throughout the pandemic, we have also supported students in recent weeks by flying to wherever they need to be to start their studies on charter as well as scheduled flights. As an airline, we firmly believe in the importance of education and are committed to lending our support to educational causes.”
