Qatar Airways offers Haj kits on flights to Saudi
The Haj kit.


DOHA: Qatar Airways (QA) is embracing the spirit of Haj by providing pilgrims with exclusive kits designed and assembled with items to assist them during their spiritual journey.
The Haj kits will be offered to all passengers travelling for pilgrimage on the airline’s flights to Jeddah and Medinah during the Haj season that started yesterday.
The kits were launched by QA in 2015 and each includes items beneficial to pilgrims as they make their journey through the holy sites. The kit contains a prayer counter, prayer beads, prayer mat, stone bag, socks and wet wipes, conveniently packaged in a bag that can also be used to carry shoes.
Rossen Dimitrov, Senior Vice- President, Customer Experience, QA, said: “QA’s flights to Jeddah and Madinah offer convenient travel for passengers who wish to make pilgrimage. “QA introduced the kits as a way to provide pilgrims with items that would be of value to them during their religious journey and in recognition of the importance of this spiritual time.
“Providing our passengers with an exceptional journey is a priority for QA, and we are delighted to be able to offer them a gift tailored to their specific needs while experiencing Haj.” QA will operate four flights a day to Jeddah and three to Medinah from September 1, from Hamad International Airport (HIA). Through its home base at the state-of-the-art HIA, QA connects passengers to more than 150 places around the world, providing pilgrims from across the globe with easy, convenient access to Saudi Arabia’s holy sites.
Passengers can fly with QA to and from eight destinations in Saudi Arabia — Jeddah, Medinah, Riyadh, Abha, Dammam, Gassim, Hofuf and Taif.
