Qatar Airways has announced the launch of a stopover package in partnership with Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), offering transit passengers the opportunity to discover Doha with free luxury hotel stays and complimentary transit visas.
The initiative is part of a broader campaign called +Qatar, which looks to encourage all transit passengers to consider adding Qatar to their itinerary.
Throughout the summer, the national carrier, with the support of QTA, will give passengers the chance to “turn a layover into a stayover” by offering four- and five-star hotel accommodation at no charge to those transiting through Doha.
- Passengers transiting through Doha can extend their stay to 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 $50 booking fee.
- The online transit visa application is also free and eligible for those in transit between five and 96 hours.
- The offer is available for all Qatar Airways passengers, both Premium and Economy.
- Passengers can choose from hotels such as The Four Seasons, Marriott Marquis, Radisson Blu and Oryx Rotana.
“The promotion invites all Qatar Airways passengers to add Doha to their vacation by taking advantage of a free one-night hotel stay from a selection of the country’s best four- and five-star hotels in the capital, Doha,” the airline said in a press statement.
How to avail the offer
To be eligible for the offer, passengers have to book their flight on Qatar Airways website, select ‘multi-city’ and choose their hotel once they receive their flight confirmation.
To maximise their time in Qatar, visitors can explore additional stopover packages offered by Discover Qatar.
This unique offer with QTA has been launched by Qatar Airways’ newly created destination management company, Discover Qatar, and is just one of many new initiatives that will be launched 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.
This announcement comes as the airline celebrates its 20th year of operations.
