Qatar World Cup: Alternative Initiatives to Reduce Pressure on Hotels
During the FIFA World Cup 2022, various airlines have come forward to reduce the pressure on hotels in Qatar. After Fly Dubai, this time Air Arabia will operate 14 shuttle flights daily from Sharjah to Doha during the World Cup. Anyone with a match ticket can come back from Doha to watch the World Cup match in one day at a low cost.
Qatar still has about five months left in the World Cup. Millions of fans from around the world are waiting to go to Qatar to join the football world cup. Qatar is also preparing to welcome the world.
But there is still a fear. Many people are quite worried about that right now. It is about the accommodation of the spectators who go to watch the game in Qatar. With a size of only 11,500 square kilometers, the country is preparing to welcome about 1.5 million spectators on the occasion of the World Cup. But the total number of rooms in the country’s hotels is 1 lakh thirty thousand. In the meantime, the rent of many hotels has skyrocketed. So there are many alternatives to think about.
How to Reduce Pressure on Hotels During Qatar World Cup
The United Arab Emirates is the neighboring country of Qatar. Despite not being able to take part in this year’s World Cup, a huge number of spectators from the football-crazy country will go to Qatar to watch the game. The country’s private airlines are doing so with alternative plans.
During the World Cup, Fly Dubai will operate 30 flights daily from Dubai to Doha. Another airline based in Sharjah, Air Arabia, is following the same path. The company currently has three daily flights from Sharjah to Doha. The number of flights will increase by 11 more during the World Cup.
Condition to Fly from UAE to Qatar During World Cup
These flights have to meet certain conditions to go to Doha. The first of which is a match ticket for the FIFA World Cup. Which will also act as a visa. The flight will reach Doha four hours before the start of the match. The return flight will be four hours after the end of the match.
Air Fare for Shuttle Flight to Fly Dubai
The minimum ticket price for the shuttle flight to Fly Dubai is $256. Airfare for business class costs $998. Air Arabia also wants to keep ticket prices within the purchasing power of spectators going to watch the game.
Air Arabia wants to operate this shuttle flight from Sharjah to Doha, reducing flights to other routes for about a month during the World Cup.
