The promotion has three different tiers. Qatar Premium gives economy class fliers a free night at four-star hotels while Qatar Luxury provides a complimentary one-night stay at a five-star premises. Qatar Ultimate requires passengers to pay surcharges of US$50 (£38), but gives two-night stays.

Travellers wishing to take advantage of the deals have to book their flights before 31 August. They do this by selecting a multi-city itinerary such as London Heathrow to Kuala Lumpur with a stopover in Doha. They then use the booking reference number to pre-apply for Qatar transit visas.

The transit visas are free and valid for up to 96 hours from the time of arrival. The airline has a number of other hotel promotions for those wishing to extend beyond the two nights allowed on the Qatar Ultimate package. The minimum transit time specified in the terms and conditions is 12 hours.

Participating hotels include the Oryx Rotana, the Four Seasons and the Marriott Marquis. Qatar Airways is collaborating with the Qatar National Tourism Authority on offering the three packages.

A short stopover in Doha opens up a number of opportunities for unique experiences. Doha sightseeing tours take in the likes of Souq Waqif, Katara Cultural Village and the Weaponry Museum. Dinner aboard an Arabian dhow and desert safaris are activity highlights.
