Qatar Airways has announced a global ‘free flights’ giveaway for teachers.
Here is the link you will need to register – click here – once applications open.
This follows the sucesss of their free flight giveaway for healthcare staff in May. We had a few winners from amongst our readership:
….. and hopefully our readers will do as well with the new giveaway for teachers. Please share this article with any teaching friends.
How does the Qatar Airways teacher giveaway work?
There are 21,000 return economy flights to be given away.
Winners can travel ANYWHERE on the Qatar Airways network.
The ticket allocation has been split across the 75 countries where Qatar Airways is currently flying, and split again across the three days of the campaign.
When and where do you register?
Registration opens at 2am (UK time) on Monday 5th October. A second batch of tickets will be released at 2am on Tuesday and a third batch at 2am on Wednesday.
It is first come, first served, which is a little inconvenient given that you need to apply at 2am BST. However, as the UK has its own unique ticket allocation, everyone is in the same boat.
Your chances will be higher on the first day as word will not have got around.
What do you win?
Each winner will receive ONE free economy class return ticket. The winner will have to pay airport taxes and charges, however.
You can book for ANY destination on the Qatar Airways network, for travel up to 30th September 2021.
All winners will also receive a voucher for 50% off a Qatar Airways flight ticket. This can be used by the winner for another trip or by a companion to accompany the winner. Children aged under 12 cannot travel on a 50% off voucher.
Prize tickets, and tickets booked with a ‘50% off’ voucher, must be ticketed by 1st November 2020.
Who qualifies as a ‘teacher’?
