Do you know a teacher who could use a getaway to any of the 177 cities in 83 countries Qatar Airways serves? If so, have them check out the great promotion Qatar Airways just published a few hours ago. In honor of World Teachers’ Day, Qatar Airways will provide 21,000 teachers with a free economy class ticket from and to any destination it serves plus 50% off another ticket. The other ticket can be used by the teacher or a friend or family member.

Qatar Airways is widely recognized as one of the best airlines in the world. I have not flown Qatar economy yet but can state that its business class is better than international first class on some airlines.

Final Thoughts

This promotion is Qatar Airways way to thank all of the teachers around the world for their inspirational hard work and dedication to educating the world’s students during these uncertain times. It is also a smart way to use the airline’s excess capacity to generate goodwill and additional revenue while the demand for air travel is depressed. It will be interesting to see how Qatar allocates promo codes by country.

Will you try to get in on this promotion. Remember it is first come first serve, so go to the Qatar website when the promo goes live (04:00 GMT+3 or 09:00pm Eastern Time) each day.
