With just over a year to go until the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ kicks-off, Qatar Airways Holidays is excited to announce the launch of its unique fan travel packages, inclusive of match tickets, return flights and accommodation options. Fans can now guarantee their match tickets to support their favourite team during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ with the option to choose additional services to explore the stunning host country.
With a few easy steps to follow, fans across the world will need to first join Qatar Airways Privilege Club, to have access to unique travel packages with booking flexibility and get their seats reserved at their preferred matches.
The journey then begins with fans selecting their favourite team, whose participation in the tournament will be decided based on ongoing FIFA World Cup™ qualifiers. In the event that the chosen team does not qualify for the tournament, a full refund option will be offered, or fans have the flexibility to choose a different team’s matches (subject to availability).
To guarantee their experience fans can choose from seven-tiered travel packages, with attractive prices starting from USD $3,800*. Guests wishing to discover Qatar during their trip can also choose to add supplementary services such as airport transfers and sightseeing tours.
Each fan can book a total of seven matches by combining more than one package. In the case that their favourite team is defeated in the advanced tournament stages, tickets will be issued to matches of one of the prevailing teams from the same group or knock-out path.
Additionally, fans can specify how many guests they are travelling with and the number of rooms they would like to stay in. They can choose from standard to premium accommodation based on their budget. To book or learn more, please visit: https://www.qatarairways.com/app/fifa2022/
