Qatar Avios has two major transfer partners: Citi ThankYou Rewards and British Airways Executive Club. The good thing is that British Airways is a direct transfer partner American Express, Chase, and Capital One which pretty much makes them transfer partners of Qatar.

Qatar Transfer Partners

Qatar Avios can be earned using Citi ThankYou Rewards along with a small handful of hotel loyalty programs.
