Qatar Airways has launched digital membership cards for members of the airline’s Privilege Club loyalty programme.

Available to all membership tiers, the digital card can be accessed through the airline’s Privilege Club app. It provides the same service as the physical card, but it is now easier for members to earn and redeem miles through a smartphone or tablet.

New Burgundy Privilege Club members will now only receive digital cards, as will their nominated family members. Members can nominate up to nine family members to join the loyalty programme, though nominee miles will be credited to the principal member’s account. New silver, Gold and Platinum members will still receive physical cards.

Members can continue to redeem benefits through the app such as priority check-in, extra baggage allowance, discounts at Qatar Duty Free, lounge access (for Silver, Gold and Platinum members) and award flights through partner airlines.
