Turkish Airlines, the national flag carrier of Turkey, has launched a unique Istanbul stopover package, enabling transit passengers from Doha to take advantage of a free night’s stay in the city.  

The unique offer from Turkish Airlines allows passengers travelling from Doha through Istanbul to experience a taste of Turkey for free. Turkish Airlines will give passengers the chance to turn a layover into stayover by offering four and five star hotel accommodation at no charge to those transiting through Istanbul to numerous destinations around the world, including Europe, North Africa, America (USA, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Panama, Cuba, Venezuela), Cyprus, Mauritania, Ghana and Ethiopia and of course combine any of those wonderful places with a quick magical trip to Istanbul too.

Mr. Mehmed Zingal, General Manager of Turkish Airlines in Qatar, said: “We want to provide our passengers who are traveling from Qatar with an opportunity to experience Turkish hospitality and other attractions that the beautiful city of Istanbul has to offer. We are confident that our passengers will benefit from our service and will make the most out of it”.

Passengers connecting through Istanbul from Doha with a layover of more than 20 hours can enjoy a free hotel stay based on their tickets. Economy-class passengers who choose to stopover in Istanbul will get a complimentary night’s stay at a four-star hotel, while business class passengers receive two nights in a five-star property in Taksim. Passengers should complete the booking process beforehand in order to receive their vouchers for the accommodation. The stopover package provides free accommodation only for round-trip passengers through Turkish Airlines and can be used on both, the outbound or inbound journey, while visa fees, cost of travel around the city and between the airport and hotel are borne by the passenger.
