Cheap flights to Qatar
Make like a millionaire oil baron and make your way to Qatar with cheap airfares from Student Flights. Visitors to this Middle Eastern enclave are usually struck by its high-class style and sophistication. Start out at Souq Waqif when you touch down – best known as a place to idle the time away among the rich and mega rich while you sample the fare at attractive cafes or explore the boutique shopping on offer. If you’ve refuelled enough, head down to the Museum of Islamic Art and take in this monument for what it really is – a masterpiece. Like most things in Qatar, there is no skimping on the architecture. And architecture is something you will be in utter awe of from the Strata Lounge – a head-spinning 56-floor building that has views that will blow your hat off, possibly quite literally. Student Flights has the best range of cheap flights to get you to Qatar and back. Plus, if you’re under 26, a student or teacher, you can get even more of a run for your Riyal with our Black Market Flights.
A flight from Australia to Qatar will arrive at Hamad International Airport (DOH), a new facility near the capital, Doha. The airport is set to become the second biggest in the Middle East after the mighty Dubai International. Set around an oasis theme highlighted by water features and desert plants, the airport will grow to be two-thirds as big as Doha city itself with plenty of ground transportation to get you to your hotel or downtown.
Direct flights from Australia to Qatar depart out of Melbourne or Perth and will take just over 14 and 12 hours, respectively, landing in Doha. Departures from other capital cities will require a domestic flight to Melbourne or Perth first. Alternatively, use Dubai or Abu Dhabi as a stopover point and a short one-hour connecting flight will land you in Doha. During the flight, airlines will often provide drinks and meals as well as various in-flight entertainment. For specific services, check out our airline guide.
