Qatar Airways' passengers can now turn a Doha transit into a stopover, with free hotel accommodation.
The airline has teamed up with Qatar Tourism to offer transit passengers the opportunity to discover Doha with free luxury hotel stays and complimentary transit visas.
A free one-night stay is available at a selection of four and five-star hotels including the Four Seasons, Marriott Marquis, Radisson Blu and Oryx Rotana. A second night is available with a booking fee of $50.
Available throughout the northern summer, the offer gives passengers the chance to explore Doha and experience city tours, desert safari adventures or a dinner cruise aboard a traditional dhow.
The offer is available to all Qatar Airways passengers, in both premium and economy classes.
Since launching the transit visa in November, the country has seen a surge in stopover passengers, with a 53 per cent increase in March compared to the same month last year, according to the Qatar Tourism Authority.
Qatar's Hamad International Airport sees 30 million passengers a year, while the airline has 197 aircraft flying to more than 150 destinations on six continents. New destinations being launched in 2017 include Nice, Dublin and Skopje.
- To book the offer, passengers need to book their flight here, select ‘multi-city’ and choose their hotel once they receive their flight confirmation.
- The online transit visa application is also free and is available for passengers in transit for between five and 96 hours.
