Economy and Premium passengers flying via Doha on Qatar Airways can enjoy a free stopover in the city throughout the northern summer, and experience authentic Arabian hospitality, through Doha city tours, desert safari adventures or a dinner cruise aboard a traditional dhow. The offer is a joint initiative of the airline and Qatar Tourism Authority.
Transiting passengers can make the most of their journey, taking in the sights of Doha with a completely free night courtesy of Qatar Airways and QTA, or stay a little longer with a second night’s stay for a modest $50 booking fee.
Passengers can choose from hotels such as The Four Seasons, Marriott Marquis, Radisson Blu and Oryx Rotana.
To be eligible, passengers simply need to book their flight here then select ‘multi-city’ and choose their hotel once they receive their flight confirmation. The online transit visa application is also free and is eligible for those in transit between five and 96 hours.
The airline’s incentive has been launched by Qatar Airways’ newly created destination management company, Discover Qatar, and is just one of many new initiatives that will be announced over the coming months to generate awareness of, and visits to, Qatar. It was designed to kick off the newly launched campaign ‘+Qatar’ from Qatar Tourism Authority, and is aimed at supporting the growing demand for tourism in Qatar.
