Privilege Club will be able to develop and grow its portfolio of co-branded payment initiatives with important banking partners in key regions throughout the world as a result of this latest partnership.
The alliance will reveal new products to supplement Qatar Airways Privilege Club’s ambitions, using the power of Visa’s global platform and digital-first strategy.
