Qatar Airways, ANA ink deal


Qatar Airways and ANA (All Nippon Airways) of Japan, have implemented a partnership linking their respective loyalty schemes.

Under the agreement, members of Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club and ANA Mileage Club can accrue and redeem mileage on each other’s global networks. The partnership comes ahead of Qatar Airways’ first foray into the Japanese market when it launches non-stop scheduled flights between Doha and Osaka on March 31, 2005.
The Osaka service will be Qatar Airways’ first route launch of the summer 2005 season and its 11th destination in the Far East. Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club members travelling on domestic or international ANA services will be able to accrue Qmiles for later redemption on flights on the Qatar Airways network and partner airlines. All Privilege Club members – whether they hold Gold, Silver or Burgundy status – have the opportunity to secure cabin upgrades on Qatar Airways flights with their accrued Qmiles.
