Qatar Airways is ramping up its all-inclusive FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 travel packages for fans to secure their place at football’s biggest event.

The additional packages include match tickets, flights and accommodation throughout the course of the tournament, allowing passionate football fans to book their seats and follow their favourite team during the first FIFA World Cup in the Middle East.

The airline originally launched these packages in September 2021 to cater to millions of anticipating fans, and now with less than 130 days to go until the mega event, a worldwide demand for match tickets has risen and these travel packages provide fans guaranteed tickets to experience matches in person.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is proud to be the Official Airline of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and bring the world’s most prestigious sporting event to the Middle East for the first time.

“We anticipate unprecedented demand throughout the tournament, and as part of our agreement with FIFA, fans from around the globe can rely on us to enjoy this once in-a-lifetime journey from start to finish.

“The fan travel packages will guarantee passengers a remarkable bucket-list trip and seamless travel experience.”

The tournament will be held across eight world-class stadiums designed to invoke the symbols of Arabian culture.

The Al Bayt Stadium will host the Opening Match with a capacity of 60,000 seats, while Lusail Stadium is set to host the Final Match of the tournament, with a capacity of 80,000 seats.

The remaining stadiums, which include Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, Al Janoub Stadium, Khalifa International Stadium, Education City Stadium, Stadium 974 and Al Thumama Stadium, will house 40,000 spectators.
