On the occasion of World Teacher’s Day, Qatar Airways is giving away 21,000 complimentary tickets to teachers to thank them for their vital work in educating young people worldwide during the challenges brought by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

The giveaway opened at 4 am this Monday, 5 October and  will close at 3:59 am on Thursday, 8 October (Doha time). Teaching professionals can register HERE for this exclusive offer by submitting a form to receive a unique promotion code, offered on a first come, first served basis.

Teaching professionals from over 75 countries where Qatar Airways currently operates are eligible for tickets. To ensure the application process is fair and transparent, each country will receive a daily allocation of tickets, staggered over the three-day campaign period. The daily allocation will be released at 4 am, Doha time, throughout the campaign period.

Teachers that successfully register will receive one Economy Class return ticket to anywhere on Qatar Airways current network of more than 90 destinations worldwide. Additionally, they will receive a voucher for 50% off one future return ticket that they can use for themselves, a family member or a friend. Both tickets are valid for travel up to 30 September 2021.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said they are incredibly grateful for the commitment and hard work of teaching professionals around the world who continue to educate 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.

HE Al Baker added that as the largest airline flying consistently throughout the pandemic, they 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. He said that as an airline, they firmly believe in the importance of education and are committed to lending support to educational causes.

Since 2013, Qatar Airways has been a proud supporter of Education Above All’s Educate A Child programme, which was launched in 2012 by HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser to significantly reduce the number of children worldwide who are denied their right to education. Qatar Airways passengers are invited to donate to Educate A Child on board  upon reaching the payment page during the online flight booking process.

Each year, Qatar Airways matches the total number of on board passenger donations. The airline also displays the foundation’s video commercial on its Oryx One inflight entertainment to raise awareness and encourage donations.

Teachers that successfully register for complimentary Qatar Airways tickets can benefit from the airline’s leading flexible booking policies. Tickets issued up to 31 December 2020 are valid for two years with unlimited date changes and the option to exchange them for a travel voucher with an additional 10% value.
