Qatar Airways launches free Doha City tour for transit passengers

Doha 28th February 2014: Qatar Airways has launched a free Doha city tour for passengers who are transiting through Doha. This joint initiative, between Qatar Airways and Qatar Tourism Authority, will provide passengers with a unique transit experience.

Passengers travelling with Qatar Airways who have between five and twelve hours transit time in Doha can take advantage of the free city tour by visiting the Doha City Tour counter at Doha International Airport Transit terminal. The tour takes around 3 hours and includes visits to some of the key landmarks around Doha city including the Museum of Islamic Art, the Corniche, West Bay area, Katara Cultural and Heritage Village, The Pearl Qatar and Souq Waqif.

The tour is conducted in an air-conditioned coach and is on a first come first serve basis subject to seat availability on coach. An English-speaking guide is on hand to provide information and insights about Doha for the duration of the tour.

Currently undergoing rapid expansion, Qatar Airways is one of the fastest growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world. Now in its 17th year of operations, Qatar Airways has a modern fleet of 129 aircraft flying to 134 key business and leisure destinations across six continents.

As part of its aggressive expansion programme, Qatar Airways will launch routes to eight new destinations during 2014: Sharjah (UAE) from March 1; Dubai World Central (UAE) from March 1; Philadelphia (USA) from April 2; Larnaca (Cyprus) from April 29; Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport (Turkey) from May 22; Edinburgh (Scotland) from May 28; Miami (USA) from June 10 and Dallas/Fort Worth (USA) from July 1.

    Nice initiative if I may say. What about those whose transit time falls between 11pm and 6am? Does the city tour also take place at night? What about visa to enter Qatar?

    What about visa requirement for the passengers who would be passing Doha?
    2. What are the timings for the trip or how many trips per day?
    3. Can one go to Souq Waqif. which is in the itinerary?
