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.
