Flydubai opens bookings world cup shuttle flights dubai doha

flydubai on its website has said that ticket holders of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ can now book a Match Day Shuttle flight from Dubai to Doha with them.

"A Match Day Shuttle flight allows you to hop on a flight to Doha, watch your match and return back to Dubai the same day*. Also, if you book a Match Day Shuttle flight, complimentary ground transportation between the airport and the stadiums will be provided by the Qatari authorities. There is a maximum-stay restriction of 24 hours for all return Match Day Shuttle flights booked from Dubai to Doha."

Cost of the flights

As per flydubai, a return Match Day Shuttle flight can be booked for an adult or child in Economy Class from USD 258 and in Business Class from USD 998 (both fares inclusive of all taxes). There’s also an onboard snack included in the cost of the fare. These are special fares which are non-refundable and they do not include a checked baggage allowance, so you’ll need to carry everything you need in your hand baggage (which can weigh up to 7 kg in economy and up to 14 kg in business).

Time or date can be changed, subject to availability

Subject to availability, ticket holders can change the time or date of their Match Day Shuttle flight for a charge of USD 50. As per flydubai, the name of a passenger cannot be changed. All Match Day Shuttle flights* will operate from Dubai World Central (DWC) between Monday 21 November 2022 and Monday 19 December 2022. With up to 30 flights a day, you’ll never miss a match. Just ensure that you select a flight that arrives at least 4 hours before match kick-off.

"Remember, you must be a ticket holder to the upcoming football tournament in Qatar if you want to book a Match Day Shuttle flight to Doha. You’ll also need to apply for a Hayya Card. This is your fan ID and you’ll need it to enter Qatar as well as to access the stadiums. All flight numbers for Match Day Shuttle flights operating into and out of DWC will have 4 digits and begin with the number 5 (e.g. FZ 5XXX). If you’re not a ticket holder to the tournament and wish to travel to Doha during this period, you can simply book one of our scheduled flights from Dubai International (DXB) subject to holding the required documents for travel."

*Subject to government approvals
