FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar

Private Jet Travel to the FIFA World Cup 2022

The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 takes place at the end of this year – and it is not too soon for fans, business travellers, tour operators and sponsors to start thinking about travel plans.

The tournament runs from Monday 21 November to Sunday 18 December and promises to be different to any that have gone before.

It is the first World Cup to be staged in the Arab World and the first to be held outside of the traditional May to July window. Qatar is also the smallest country ever to host the finals, which creates new opportunities but also new challenges.

By chartering a flight to the Qatar World Cup 2022 groups of fans will have the comfort of skipping crowded airport terminals, with added safety and security, and the option of having nutritional meals onboard the flight. Whether you’re a tour operator or a group of fans looking to charter a flight to this can be cost-effective and convenient way you can travel at a time that suits you without the restrictions of a scheduled flight.

Charter flights to Qatar

In a regular World Cup, travel plans often had to be made last minute because there was a huge difference whether your team was drawn to play in Sapporo, Japan, in the 2002 finals or in Seoul in South Korea – that’s a six-hour flight..

This time, if you are a tour operator, a group of fans thinking about chartering a flight or a smaller group looking to charter a private jet, the decision about where to be based could be made sooner.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to arrive in Qatar for the most important football tournament in the world, we now know the match schedule for the tournament with most the play-off games being completed by the end of March.

The Stadiums

One of the unique aspects of a World Cup in Qatar is that the stadiums are so close together, including five in or on the outskirts of Doha itself.

The shortest distance to a stadium when travelling from the centre of Doha is 7km and the longest 46km – which makes it possible to fly into Doha from wherever you are based and arrive at a game quickly.

The stadiums hosting the 64 games in the 2022 World Cup are:

Where to stay

With demand for accommodation in Qatar high, many tour operators – and many supporters – are already considering whether to be based outside the country and fly in for games.

Chapman Freeborn aims to offer one-day return short-haul flights into Doha, allowing fans to jet in for the match and then leave after the game is over.

This opens up the possibility of a family holiday in Dubai , or a group holiday, with the added excitement of international football.

The most popular destinations are likely to be:

Abu Dhabi

The six-star hotels of Abu Dhabi are even closer to Doha, a flight of only 1hr 5 minutes and 200 miles in distance. It also offers a greater range of accommodation than Doha and a more established tourism offer.

Dubai

The legendary tourist hotspot is only a 1hr 11-minute flight away from Doha and we expect it to be the most popular destination for football fans from across the world. With a wide range of hotels, golf courses and tourist attractions, families can base themselves there for a winter holiday and then travel into Qatar for matches.

Oman

A venue which is tourist-friendly and less developed that Dubai and Abu Dhabi, offering a more authentic taste of Arabic life. A flight to Doha takes just 1hr 25 minutes.

Sharjah

Like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sharjah is a United Arab Emirates state. Famous for its museums and art it is regarded as a family-friendly destination. The flight to Doha takes 1hr 34 minutes and the distance is 447 miles.

Turkey

For those interested in a European base – perhaps they have a holiday home or family in the region or are attracted to the area’s renowned resorts – Turkey is a surprise contender. The flight from Istanbul to Doha is around four hours, but might be faster from a regional hub.

Match schedule

The host nation Qatar will play their opening game against Ecuador in the Al Bayt Stadium on 21 November. One of the stand-out group games will be 2010 World Cup winners Spain facing off against four times winner Germany on 27 November. The final will be played at the spectacular Lusail Stadium on 18 December.
