Qatar Airways Privilege Club Platinum members will be fast-tracked to Accor ALL Gold status, with ALL Diamonds enjoying complimentary Privilege Club Platinum membership, as fruits of a strategic partnership between the airline and hotel group.
Privilege Club and ALL members will pocket up to 1 Avios for every €1 spent on eligible stays at participating Accor hotels, in addition to the usual ALL Reward points.
Similarly, they’ll earn 1 ALL Reward point for every US$2 spent on eligible Qatar Airways flights, alongside the standard serve of Avios.
Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori, describes the move as being in keeping with “constantly striving to achieve excellence by providing a loyalty programme that sets the highest standards for our members.”
The status fast-tracks for Qatar Airways Privilege Club and Accor ALL members, once their respective accounts are linked, will certainly have strong appeal: here’s how they stack up.
Qatar Airways Privilege Club Gold members will be upgraded to ALL Silver status following “the first eligible international hotel stay with Accor” – providing extra benefits such as complimentary welcome drinks, priority welcome, late check-out and more.
That same single eligible international hotel stay with Accor will see Privilege Club Platinum members boosted to ALL Gold status, granting them guaranteed room availability, complimentary room upgrades, early check-in, late check-out and more.
As for Accor ALL members taking their “first eligible Qatar Airways flight”: ALL Gold members will be upgraded to Qatar Airways Privilege Club Silver tier, while ALL Platinum members ascend to Qatar Airways Privilege Club Gold, and membership – the ‘sweet spot’ for priority check-in, extra baggage allowance, complimentary seat selection, lounge access, meet and greet service and more.
ALL Diamond members will rocket straight to Qatar Airways Privilege Club Platinum – the airline’s highest tier - which includes a primo park of entry to the lavish Al Safwa First Lounge at Doha’s Hamad International Airport when travelling in Qatar Airways business class.
