Qatar Airways provides haj kits for pilgrims on Saudi flights

Qatar Airways is providing pilgrims with exclusive Haj kits designed and assembled with items to assist them during their spiritual journey.

The Haj kits will be offered to all passengers travelling for pilgrimage on the airline's flights to Jeddah and Madinah during the Haj season, starting Thursday.

The Haj kits were first launched by Qatar Airways in 2015 and includes items that are beneficial to pilgrims as they make their journey through the holy sites.

The kit contains a prayer counter, prayer beads, prayer mat, stone bag, socks and wet wipes, conveniently packaged in a bag that can also be used to carry shoes.

Rossen Dimitrov, Qatar Airways senior vice president, Customer Experience, said: "Qatar Airways introduced the Haj kits as a way to provide pilgrims with items that would be of value to them during their religious journey and in recognition of the importance of this spiritual time.

"Providing our passengers with an exceptional journey is a priority for Qatar Airways, and we are delighted to be able to offer them a gift tailored to their specific needs while experiencing Haj."

Qatar Airways operates four flights a day to Jeddah, and three flights a day to Madinah starting from September 1 while passengers can fly with Qatar Airways to and from eight destinations in the kingdom.
