Doha, February 13, 2014
Leading telecom services operator Vodafone Qatar has joined hands with Priority Pass, one of the largest independent airport lounge access programs, to launch its new RedPostpaid plans.
Under this deal, the Priority Pass lounge membership is now available to all Vodafone Qatar RedPostpaid customers, giving access to over 600 VIP lounges across the globe, simply by showing their Priority Pass Membership card at participating lounges in airports in more than 100 countries.
Vodafone Qatar said it wanted to bring innovation to the market by offering its customers benefits they would not expect from their telecommunications provider.
Vodafone will use the flexible benefits allocation available from Priority Pass to match different inclusions against Vodafone’s segmented offering, with the highest plans having the greatest number of lounge visits each month.
Each Red offer includes an allocation of lounge visits, which can be redeemed by the customer or any family or friend travelling with the customer.
