Qatar Airways introduces new EMI payment option for its India website

Qatar Airways is pleased to introduce a new online payment scheme for bookings made on its website www.qatarairways.com, exclusively for customers with credit cards issued by Indian banks. The new payment option makes it now possible for passengers to pay for their booking through monthly installments of three, six, nine or 12 months respectively.

The service aims to ease and enhance passengers’ travelling experience by making their booking transactions much more affordable and flexible. It also makes it easier for travellers planning to fly with family and friends, with only a minimum installment fee needed to be paid to complete the purchase.

Qatar Airways Senior Manager Commercial–ISC, Naveen Chawla, said, “The launch of the new EMI option gives our passengers tremendous benefits as they can now book their tickets online at their convenience through our website, and also instantly access our latest offers.

“Through this new user friendly and affordable payment scheme, Qatar Airways passengers with credit cards issued by Indian banks will now have greater flexibility when it comes to planning their travel itinerary. Those who previously couldn’t book online due to their credit limit or a large outstanding balance will now be able to pay for their bookings effortlessly using their credit card. This service is testament to Qatar Airways’ ongoing commitment to be innovative when it comes to enhancing the travel experience of our customers.”
