Kuwait Airways announced in a tweet that it would operate 13 daily flights to Doha to allow football fans to experience the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The number of flights would decrease as the tournament progresses.

According to Kuwait News Agency, Kuwait Airways CEO Man Razougi said in a press statement that Kuwait Airways Holidays offices and the 171-call centre would offer packages that would include tickets for the matches and flights starting from KD 200 (around USD 649 or QR 2,361). He added that after booking the tickets and flights, clients should enter these details into the Hayya card application to enable them to attend matches.

Qatar would be handling the transportation of fans to and from the venues free of charge and through the Hayya application. The FIFA World Cup organizing committee had specified regulations concerning luggage, therefore, travellers are advised to bring only carry-on baggage during their trip, he noted.

Economy class travellers are allowed to carry luggage not exceeding 7 kg, while business and first class are allowed to carry bags not exceeding 10 and 15 kg respectively. Those who have extended their stay in Qatar are allowed to bring a suitable amount of luggage and could book their tickets according to the regular flights between Kuwait and Doha, Razouqi said.
