To counter the ongoing travel restrictions globally, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Qatar Airways has made further changes to its Privilege Club terms and conditions.

Previously, the Qatar flag carrier announced that members would have their tier status extended for six months, but this extension has now been doubled to 12 months “in recognition that its members continue to be impacted by travel restrictions and flight reductions resulting from COVID-19.”

This extension applies to those whose memberships are due to expire before January 31, 2021.

Meanwhile, Gold and Platinum members will see their Qcredits—which can be used on upgrades, extra baggage, and lounge access, remain valid for two years. The caveat? They’ll have to retain the relevant tier status.

Qatar Airways chief commercial officer Simon Talling-Smith, said: “As travel restrictions increase, we want to reassure our Privilege Club members that they will not lose their hard-earned membership status.”

“As such restrictions are outside of our control as an airline, we are honoring the loyalty our members have shown us by offering to extend or reinstate their tier membership and benefits for 12 months.”
