Celebrating the International Nurses Day 2020, Qatar Airways came up with a unique idea to thank hundreds of thousands of the frontline healthcare professionals who have relentlessly been treating COVID19 patients all over the world, risking their own lives. With effect on May 12, the airline started offering 100,000 complimentary tickets to healthcare professionals in solidarity with them and in recognition of their unflinching commitment. 100,000 free tickets of Qatar Airways flights for healthcare professionals will be allocated till May 18 (midnight in Doha time).
