Qatar Airways Privilege Club (QRPC) members are now able to collect and spend Avios reward points at almost 200 outlets at Hamad International Airport (HIA) following a tie-up with Qatar Duty Free.
In another innovation, passengers at all departure points will be rewarded with Avios points upon check in, which will be credited up to 120 minutes before their flights' departure, Qatar Airways said in a statement.
This will allow members of Qatar Airways Privilege Club to then collect and spend Avios at the World’s Best Airport as part of their journey.
Avios can be used in an expansive list of luxury fashion outlets and world-class dining options at the HIA, which has recently launched a major expansion which features a luxury shopping hub, Orchard, set in a tropical garden that includes one-of-a-kind brand offerings.
Avios is the reward currency of Qatar Airways Privilege Club and preferred currency of the airline, offering its most regular flyers extraordinary payment products. Avios can be used in conjunction with cash offering a part payment option. Avios are collected when members or their nominated family members fly with Qatar Airways, oneworld airlines, plus QR’s airline partners.
Avios can also be collected with more than 100 global partners and co-branded payment cards. Avios can be spent in multiple ways and the most recent enhancement is shopping and dinning at Qatar Duty Free.
