As healthcare workers around the world have been overwhelmed by the coronavirus pandemic, Qatar Airways is saying 'thank you' by giving away 100,000 flights to healthcare workers as part of a contest ending Monday.

“We at Qatar Airways are incredibly grateful for the commitment and hard work of healthcare professionals around the world who looked after people in these times of uncertainty,” the airline's Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said in a statement. “There are no words or gestures that are enough to repay these brave men and women but we hope that our small offer of a complimentary return flight on Qatar Airways will allow them to enjoy a well-deserved holiday, visit family and friends or explore a destination they have always dreamed of, as travel restrictions start to ease.”

Frontline medical professionals including doctors, medical practitioners, nurses, paramedics, lab technicians, clinical researchers and pharmacists are required to fill out an entry form to be eligible for the free tickets.

In the contest ending at 11:59 DST on May 18, healthcare professionals can register online to receive a promo code for their complimentary tickets. The registration requires contestants to enter their profession, hospital, hospital ID number, and passport information. If the daily allotment of tickets is reached, contestants can retry every day until the end of the contest.

Winners of the contest will receive two round-trip economy class tickets to any destination in the Qatar Airways network. They will also receive a voucher for 35 percent off purchases at Qatar Duty Free in Doha’s Hamad International Airport until December 31, 2020.

Tickets must be booked before November 26 and the trip must take place before December 10. The winning tickets are flexible and open to an unlimited number of changes to destination or date.

Every day just after midnight in Qatar (5:01 p.m. ET), the airline will release a daily allotment of tickets, proportionate to its population size. The tickets will be available online on a first-come, first-serve basis until the daily allotment is reached.
