MATCH Hospitality and Qatar Airways announce the launch of exclusive access to flights for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022

Unique “early bird” programme from MATCH Hospitality and Qatar Airways offers flight seat booking months in advance of general availability – a commercial aviation first.

DOHA / ZURICH – The upcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is going to be remarkable in so many ways and now the official MATCH Hospitality “early bird” flights programme exclusively guarantees your seats on Qatar Airways, granting priority access to your first choice of flights to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The innovative arrangements with Skytrax Airline of the Year 2021 Qatar Airways provide MATCH Hospitality customers unparalleled and priority access to flight seats throughout the period of the FIFA World Cup™, from across the world to Qatar – months ahead of anyone else.

This programme gives MATCH Hospitality customers the best opportunity to plan their travel arrangements in advance with confidence.

Additionally, in the event that customers need to alter their itineraries, MATCH Hospitality can offer unmatched flexibility. Changes to bookings can be accepted until just a few weeks before departure and at no additional charge.

So now MATCH Hospitality clients can exclusively curate their tailored travel, accommodation, and guaranteed ticket-inclusive hospitality packages for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ all in one place.

The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will take place between 21 November and 18 December 2022, with 32 nations competing for the ultimate prize in football. Hosted by the stunning State of Qatar, the 22nd edition of the event will be the first in the Arab World and promises to be a FIFA World Cup of firsts. The country blends centuries-old traditions with a cosmopolitan vibe, offering memorable experiences ranging from bazaars to couture shopping, heritage to cutting-edge technology, and world-class restaurants featuring international top chefs.

MATCH Hospitality offers a range of hospitality packages suited to everyone: from MATCH Club for fervent fans looking for a casual family-friendly environment; to the Pearl Lounge promising the pinnacle of luxury and the ultimate football viewing experience.

Jaime Byrom, Executive Chairman of MATCH Hospitality, said: “We are naturally delighted to announce this very special collaboration with Qatar Airways. Our early bird programme provides priority and exclusive access to customers of MATCH Hospitality, and in doing so, we are making commercial aviation history through our partnership with Qatar Airways. Being able to offer these packages 15 months before the event is a great opportunity for MATCH Hospitality customers to book their place in Qatar now, before flights are made available to the general public through conventional sales platforms.”

His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, said: “With the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ set to take place for the first time in the Middle East next year, we remain committed towards upholding our standards as the world’s best airline and contributing towards a tournament that will be remembered for years to come. We are delighted to work with MATCH Hospitality to give fans the exceptional opportunity to secure flights with Qatar Airways, enabling them to enjoy a seamless journey that is luxurious and stress-free.
