Qatar’s national airline Qatar Airways has unveiled a global program exclusive to students worldwide.

Based on Qatar Airways’ own loyalty program Qatar Airways Privilege Club, the initiative called ‘Student Club’ will offer a wide range of benefits curated for students to support them throughout their educational journey.

The airline observed that Student Club members can enjoy “great savings and bespoke benefits such as special fares on flights, extra baggage allowances, the flexibility to change the dates of their flight, complimentary Super Wi-Fi onboard and more”

These members will also be automatically enrolled in Qatar Airways Privilege Club which will unlock “even greater rewards” and will receive a tier upgrade as a graduation gift as well as the opportunity to earn 5,000 Qmiles if they refer a friend to Student Club.

“Our brand-new Student Club is designed specifically with students’ needs in mind. Travel is an important part of their life, with many choosing to study abroad for the duration of their university career or for a semester. We also know that long university vacations are a wonderful opportunity for students to visit family or friends or simply to explore the world. Having listened to the needs of our current student passengers, we are delighted to help them to aim for the skies with our Student Club.”

Being build on Qatar Airways’ own loyalty program Qatar Airways Privilege Club, students will be able to earn Qmiles when traveling with Qatar Airways, Oneworld airlines, or any of the airline’s partners.

Qmiles can also be gained using Qatar Airways credit cards and when shopping with Privilege Club retail and lifestyle partners. These Qmiles can be redeemed for a range of exciting benefits including award flights, upgrades or extra baggage on Qatar Airways, shopping in Qatar Duty-Free as well flights and hotel stay with partners.

All students in full- and part-time education aged between 18 and 30 years are eligible to join the program. Students can know more about the initiative and join the Student Club by visiting Qatar Airways’ exclusive page for the program.
