Qatar Airways passengers can now get in touch round the clock as the airline has launched a new dedicated Twitter channel that operates 24/7.
The airline already has online support within the most popular digital channels. The new 24/7 Twitter service is bilingual and means that Qatar Airways’ passengers will now be provided with a more customised online support service.
Using the dedicated support handle of @QRsupport, passengers can raise their enquiries and receive replies 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week in English and Arabic from the airline’s Customer Service team, ensuring Qatar Airways’ passengers can continue to contact the airline quickly and simply.
