Qatar Airways has revamped its corporate rewards program,
Beyond Business, in the hopes of enticing larger businesses to join.
The carrier launched Beyond Business at the beginning of
2019 and mainly targeted small and medium-sized business customers. The program
now has expanded to five tiers, based on travel spend with Qatar Airways. The
basic level, Elevate, requires no spending commitment and gives companies
access to discounted fares and an earning rate of one point, redeemable for
flights and other rewards, per dollar spent. In higher tiers, which require a
minimum spend commitment, companies earn points at a higher rate and also get
access to benefits such as priority baggage handling and Privilege Club tier
status for their travelers.
The program had three tiers upon its launch—Elevate,
Accelerate and Ascend—with the highest tier requiring $100,000 in annual
spending. The new structure adds two higher tiers—Advance and Achieve—though
