This is an added feature which allows Privilege Club members travelling to/from the Americas to top up their free checked baggage allowance with an additional 9kgs (one-way) using their Qmiles or Qcredits*.
Top up allowance is charged based on a flat rate of 9kgs. For instance if member’s top up allowance is less than 9kgs, member will be charged for 9kgs.
Any subsequent excess above the free checked baggage plus utilised top up allowance will be charged as per Qatar Airways excess baggage rates.

*Redemption of Qcredits for excess baggage is applicable only for Platinum and Gold members. Read more about Qcredits.
