Qatar Airways’ frequent flyer programme (FFP) Privilege Club, has announced that its Platinum members can now access HIA’s exclusive Al Safwa First Class Lounge when flying Business Class with up to two guest passes.

Platinum-tier Privilege Club members travelling Business Class with Qatar Airways can now enjoy the Al Safwa five-star experience at HIA, which includes a la carté fine dining, state-of-the-art media and business facilities and a tranquil spa.

The lounge is based on level three of concourse B at HIA, is designed to offer a luxurious and culturally enriching premium experience for customers. From its unique design, which draws influence from ancient Islamic architecture, to its ultramodern range of facilities, Al Safwa First Class Lounge is an oasis of comfort, style and luxury.

Previously Platinum Privilege Club members were only able to access the HIA lounge applicable to their cabin of travel, with their guest entitlement restricted to use of the dedicated FFP lounges – the First Class and Business Class lounges.

Privilege Club launched in 2000 as a form of appreciation to Qatar Airways’ loyal passengers, offering them the opportunity to earn Qmiles when travelling on Qatar Airways, oneworld® airlines, or any of the airlines’ partners. Qmiles has since served as another convenient means of payment at the award-winning Qatar Duty Free outlets, located in both the departure and arrival halls of Hamad International Airport, and at Oryx Galleria in Doha.

Platinum level is the premier tier of membership available in Qatar Airways’ award-winning Privilege Club frequent flyer programme. Membership benefits include a range of online booking and Qatar Duty Free (QDF) shopping discounts, extra Qcredits, a generous additional baggage allowance and 100 per cent Qmiles mileage bonus on all eligible flights.
