MANILA, PHILIPPINES. Qatar Airways has always been in the list of the world's top airlines. That is why to book in it would entail individuals to experience some nice perks that are non-existent in the other airlines that do not belong in the top bunch. And yes, these perks even apply to Economy class fanatics like me!
Perk #1. Complimentary Service to Clark
Qatar Airways flights are present in both Manila and Clark. We always take advantage of the flights in Clark as the fare is lower and it is just a 1.5-hour travel from Manila which is not too long and is very convenient. In this trip alone, we were able to save a total of USD 750 for the five of us.
Common questions those taking the Clark flight and coming from Manila ask of are "How can we get there?" and "For how much?". Well, I am happy to say that Qatar Airways has a complimentary bus service that takes passengers to and from Resorts World Manila via Trinoma Mall. For those interested to use the service, you may contact +632 519 1888 for further details and to have your name listed.
Qatar Airways has a flight at 10:40 in the morning everyday going to Doha. Since the call-time for the bus service is at 5 am, we went to Career Hub in Resorts World Manila at 4:15 for us to have some margin. Upon arriving, we approached the Qatar Airways personnel manning the reception desk and gave her our passports and flight itinerary. The receptionist gave us numbers which we placed on our luggages for identification purposes. Since we had our names listed yesterday, we were assigned in the "branded" bus. The branded bus has wifi onboard and has better seats than their regular bus.
2.5 hours upon arriving in Career Hub the bus is now on the way to Clark. We had just left the Trinoma Mall after picking up other passengers and we are now cruising along NLEX. An hour more and we will already be in Clark.
