With just over a year to go until the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 kicks-off, Qatar Airways Holidays has announced the launch of its fan travel packages, inclusive of match tickets, return flights and accommodation options.

With a few easy steps to follow, fans across the world will need to first join Qatar Airways Privilege Club, to have access to unique travel packages with booking flexibility and get their seats reserved at their preferred matches.

To guarantee their experience fans can choose from seven-tiered travel packages. Each fan can book a total of seven matches by combining more than one package.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) reported that people are increasingly frustrated with Covid-19 travel restrictions. A survey commissioned by IATA of 4,700 respondents in 11 markets in September demonstrated confidence that the risks of Covid-19 can be effectively managed and that the freedom to travel should be restored.

Some 67% of respondents believe that most country borders should be opened now, up 12 percentage points from a June survey. The survey revealed that 64% of respondents felt border closures are unnecessary and have not been effective in containing the virus (up 11 points from June). Some 73% responded that their quality of life is suffering as a result of Covid-19 travel restrictions (up six points from June).

With vaccination rates globally increasing, 80% of respondents agree that vaccinated people should be able to travel freely by air. However, there were strong views against making vaccination a condition for air travel. About two-thirds felt it is morally wrong to restrict travel only to those who have been vaccinated. Over 80% of respondents believe that testing before air travel should be an alternative for people without access to vaccination.
