QTA, Qatar Airways Extend ‘Free’ Stopover Offer

Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) and Qatar Airways will continue offering their stopover package until the end of the year.

The enticing offer — part of a broader +Qatar campaign — encourages all transit passengers to add Qatar to their travel plans and provides transit passengers with an opportunity to discover the country. The offering includes free luxury hotel stays and complimentary transit visas. Initially planned to run from May until the end of the summer, the offer will now continue until Dec. 31 December. During the initial period, the country welcomed 34% more transit passengers compared to the same period in 2016.

QTA and Qatar Airways further announced that the offer will now be extended to passengers booking their travel through tour operators, allowing more people to benefit from the offer of a free overnight stay in a luxury hotel or a two-night stay for the discounted price of US$100. In addition, QTA and Qatar Airways are offering a free stopover city tour, which can be booked on arrival at Hamad International Airport.

Passengers can select from hotels including The Four Seasons, Marriott Marquis, Radisson Blu and Oryx Rotana. The city tours, organized by Discover Qatar, offer passengers the opportunity to explore Doha and experience desert safari adventures or a dinner cruise aboard a traditional dhow, giving visitors a taste of Qatar’s authentic hospitality.
To be eligible, agents and their clients must book their flight on, select “multi-city” and choose their hotel once they receive their flight confirmation.
