Qatar Airways gives away 100,000 return flight tickets to health workers
From today (International Nurses Day) until Monday 18 May, frontline healthcare workers can apply online to receive a promotional code for the flights (a limited number are released in each country every day).
Doctors, medical practitioners, nurses, paramedics, lab technicians, clinical researchers and pharmacists are eligible to win up to two return economy class tickets on the Qatar network.
The ticket fares and surcharges are waived. However, you and your companion (must be aged 12+) will need to pay taxes.
Destinations include New York, Johannesburg, Perth, Doha, Athens and more and flights must be booked by 28 November for travel between 26 May and 10 December 2020. You’ll need to book at least 14 days before departure.
Privilege Club members will also earn Qmiles for the journey and winners will receive 35% off at select Qatar Duty Free outlets (valid till 31 December, though T&Cs apply).
To enter, visit the Qatar Airways Thank You Heroes page (tickets are on a first come, first served basis). You’ll need to enter your details, including passport number (so have this to hand) and passport expiry date, as well as hospital ID number. Your companion doesn’t need to work in the healthcare profession.
You’ll need to present your original medical identification at the airport check-in desk if you’re successful, otherwise you may be denied boarding.
Given the coronavirus pandemic, Qatar said tickets will be fully flexible, with an unlimited number of destination or date changes allowed without any fees. Further, seats are limited and are subject to availability.
See the promotional page for the full terms and conditions. Good luck!
