Qatar Airways launches Net booking

Qatar Airways has launched its new Internet Booking Engine. The facility allows passengers anywhere in the world to search for a Qatar Airways flight across the whole network, book and pay online and have tickets issued automatically through its website www.qatarairways.com

The new booking engine provides passengers with greater flexibility in making reservations from the comfort of their home or office 24-hours a day.

A unique feature of the new site is the facility to find the lowest fare, which displays different flight options across a wide range of dates.

As a bonus to book online, members of Qatar Airways' Privilege Club loyalty programme will receive an extra 500 Qmiles.

The new booking engine offers online credit card payments and customers can choose to collect a paper ticket or receive an electronic ticket confirmation to their email address, issued instantly 24 hours a day, seven days a week upon confirming bookings.

The facility is part of a series of initiatives being introduced by Qatar Airways over the next few months, said a release yesterday.

As part of its commitment to e-commerce, the airline will introduce more web-based services and have a new-look website, beginning this summer.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said as the airline was growing at an unprecedented rate, it was striving to ensure passengers are provided with more ease and greater levels of comfort during the booking process. "Qatar Airways has a committed strategy to develop the e-commerce side of our business," he said.
