As part of the Qatar-India "air bubble" deal, Qatar Airways has opened bookings on flights between Qatar and 13 cities in India from August 18 to August 31, 2020.

According to Qatar Airways, it will operate flights via the following cities in India:

One-way and return flight tickets to and from Doha and these 13 destinations can be booked through the airline's website.

  1. From India to Qatar
    1. Qatari nationals
    2. Any Indian national holding any type of valid Qatar visa and destined for Qatar only.
