Age Specific / Kids

As a frequent traveler, you may already rack up points with Qatar Airway’s loyalty program, Privilege Club. The loyalty program caters to Qatar travelers, aged 12 and up, and incentivizes your trip with point-driven returns and special privileges for frequent travelers, and now kids can experience a rewards program all their own. The new Oryx Kids Club by Qatar Airways is specifically designed for the youngest travelers onboard, aged 2–11, and offers a slew of fun ways for the kids to engage and enjoy their trip.

This all-new frequent-flyer program grants Qmiles to the smallest passengers, which they can redeem later for a variety of exciting rewards, benefits and special incentives. The kids will love the special treatment and feel like a pro onboard. Oryx Club members also accrue Qpoints, which can elevate the little ones to a higher tier of the program — just like you.

All Oryx Club members receive a soft plushy toy onboard and an activity pack for long-haul flights. Watch the kids play games, cuddle their toy and enjoy their elite status. Oryx Club members snack on all-new meal boxes filled with fun and nutritious food while in flight.

The little ones can keep an eye on their program status on the Privilege Club website, featuring their own dashboard of information. Peruse the system with the kids while viewing their flight history, Qmiles balance and helping them choose possible rewards as they gain status. Enjoy the benefits together or let the kids assert some independence and revel in their inclusive club — mascots and all.

Mascots, or club leaders, Orry and Orah bring their friends Kamil, Faaiz and Farahto to Qatar Airways to help young children feel confident and excited about flying. The idea is to make the trip more seamless and enjoyable for families and hopefully cut out any fear or apprehension the kids may have with flying.

To sign up, parents can register the smaller travelers with Oryx Kids Club here while booking. Check out the site and see all the great opportunities for families and kids.

This is just one of the more recent moves Qatar Airways has made for families and young children. The airline’s hub, Hamad International Airport, boasts a now iconic Teddy Bear lamp and various children’s play areas. The kids can play with fellow travelers while the parents shop in Qatar Airways’ Duty Free Bumble Tree store or head to the games room and experience the Formula 1 simulator. Children traveling through Hamad International Airport can even explore the kid’s lounge just for them.
