To celebrate World Teacher’s Day, Qatar Airways is giving away 21,000 complimentary tickets to multiple destinations. The generous move from the airline is to thank teachers for their hard work in educating people worldwide during the coronavirus pandemic. The complimentary tickets will be Economy Class return tickets to any destination operated by Qatar Airways for travel up to September 30, 2021.

The ticket giveaway will open at 4am on October 5 and close at 3.59am on October 8 (Doha time).

They will also receive 50 percent off a future return ticket that they can use or let a family member or friend use.

Both the tickets are also valid until September 30, 2021.

Qatar Airlines also has a leading flexible booking policy.
