Teachers are now being offered free return flights to any holiday destination of their choice, if they fly with Qatar Airways.

Yep, the airline is offering up return economy journeys to any of the 90 hotspots on its routes, with countries including Paris, LA and Sao Paulo among the stunning choices.

The offer might sound too good to be true, but it really is that simple. They're putting on the promotion to celebrate World Teacher's Day - which was yesterday (October 5th).

There is one catch, though.

There are only 21,000 tickets up for grabs, so you'd better act quickly if you're a teacher and you want to get your hands on one.

Teachers are being rewarded by the airline (

All you need to do to claim your free return flights is register for free on the Qatar Airways website here.

And that's not all you'll bag. You'll also receive 50 per cent off another return ticket, which can be used by a family member of friend you might be travelling with (even if they're not a teacher!).

Of course, if you want to spoil yourself - deservedly - then you can use that 50 per cent off on another flight for yourself, too.

The special giveaway closes at 2am on Thursday 8th October.

You'll then be able to redeem the offer for travel dates up until the 30th September 2021, so there's plenty of time to use the tickets when travelling is (hopefully) a little easier.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: "We at Qatar Airways are incredibly grateful for the commitment and hard work of teaching professionals around the world who continue to educate our young people in these times of uncertainty.

"We know that it has not been an easy task, yet teachers have been incredibly resourceful, turning to online learning and other methods.

There are 90 countries you can jet away to (

"As the largest airline flying consistently throughout the pandemic, we have also supported students in recent weeks by flying to wherever they need to be to start their studies on charter as well as scheduled flights.

"As an airline, we firmly believe in the importance of education and are committed to lending our support to educational causes."

It's worth noting that the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel due to the Covid-19 pandemic, except when it comes to a select list of countries, found here.

The list is reviewed on a weekly basis, and is updated based on cases per 1000 people, alongside a string of other factors.
