So far, this is a great offer in terms of pricing. But there are only 21,000 tickets worldwide for grabs. For Canadian teachers flying from Toronto and Montreal, Qatar Airways offer a great Economy product I wrote extensively about.


Teachers in primary and secondary schools work hard. This is a nice marketing initiative by Qatar Airways to thank them while they spark interest to them and their loyalty program.
