Qatar Airways has launched a corporate rewards programme for small- and medium-sized businesses.

‘Beyond Business by Qatar Airways’ allows companies to earn Qrewards, which can be redeemed on flights or spent on other perks.

It is currently available in Europe and the Americas, and will be rolled out globally later in the year.

There are three rewarding tiers called Elevate, Accelerate, and Ascent, which unlock faster earnings and new benefits.

The airline’s regular loyalty programme is called Privilege Club, with which members earn Qmiles.

Qatar’s Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “As a carrier-of-choice for businesses around the world, we recognise the importance of a top-tier corporate rewards programme.

“We are proud to introduce ‘Beyond Business by Qatar Airways’ as it allows small and medium-sized enterprises to be rewarded for their business and enjoy industry-leading benefits.”
