Qatar opens first class lounge to Platinum business class flyers

Qatar Airways’ Al Safwa first class lounge at Doha is now open to Platinum, provided they’re travelling in Qatar business class.

The lounge was originally restricted to Qatar Airways’ first-class passengers.

Al Safwa first class lounge features an à la carte restaurant, nap rooms, day spa and jacuzzi, all of which surround a centerpiece, a luxurious grand water fountain.

Qatar Airways describes the Al Safwa First Lounge as “a gleaming example of Arabian grandeur and elite exclusivity in a refined setting. Inspired by the design of Doha’s Museum of Islamic Art, Al Safwa First Lounge encapsulates its cultural surroundings with simplicity and grace.”

A spokesperson for Qatar Airways was quoted saying that this ‘Platinum-in business-class’ access applies only to Platinum members of the airline’s own Privilege Club rewards program.

An additional benefit now offered to Privilege Club Platinum members is a bonus serve of Qcredits, which can be redeemed for upgrades, additional checked luggage, fees for points-based award bookings and lounge access for guests.
