The oneworld airline alliance launched a ‘oneworld Visit Middle East pass’ days after Qatar Airways fully joined the alliance in late October 2013.
The pass offers flights within the Gulf and the surrounding area, totaling 30 destinations in 12 countries. It has to be used in conjunction with an international flight to the region on any oneworld member airline.
Prices are based on selected cabin – Business or Economy – and on the length of the selected sector.
oneworld is also offering all frequent fliers from its existing members double mileage awards on Qatar Airways flights between November 15, 2013 and January 31, 2014 (only until January 24, 2014 for Cathay Pacific’s The Marco Polo Club cardholders).
This will not, however, include the peak holiday travel period (December 20, 2013 to January 5, 2014).
Royal Jordanian, another airline from the Gulf region with non-stop flights from the US, is also member of oneworld.
