Qatar Airways offers 4-day stopovers to Indian travellers


New Delhi, Nov 23 : Qatar Airways on Wednesday said it is offering new stopover packages for Indian travellers.

The airline said the new packages will allow Indian passengers to stop over at Doha while travelling to and from destinations in the Middle East, the US, Europe and Africa.

“Qatar Airways is offering Indian travellers the opportunity to add another experience to their holiday itineraries, with a stopover in Doha during their next overseas trip for up to four days,” the national carrier of the state of Qatar said in a statement.

“This holiday-within-a-holiday is thanks to a new free transit visa scheme, which allows visitors from India to break up their outbound or inbound journey with a stay in Doha, without impacting their total return ticket fare.”

According to the statement, on November 1, 2016, transit visa permissions were extended allowing Qatar Airways passengers transiting through Doha to stop over for up to four days.

Currently, Qatar Airways has a fleet of 191 aircraft flying to more than 150 business and leisure destinations across six continents.
