Discover Doha By Air

We’re all used to seeing Qatar Airways’ iconic livery soaring high above our heads but if you spot one of these fancy little flying machines, you’ll know someone is getting better acquainted with our capital.

Using a Cessna 208 Caravan light aircraft, Discover Qatar has introduced air tours taking in Doha’s most iconic landmarks. Catering to the desires of the everyday explorer seeking bespoke adventures, Discover Doha by Air promises an extraordinary fusion of adventure, thrill-seeking and exploration.

Each air tour is expertly planned and prepared to comfortably accommodate eight passengers in the air-conditioned cabin of a Cessna 208 Caravan, a single-engine light turboprop utility aircraft, designed with large windows that are ideal for aerial viewing. The onboard headphones will allow customers to clearly hear the pilot’s in-flight commentary during their experience.

With a flight duration of 45 minutes, the aircraft will take off from Doha International Airport Premium Terminal, first flying over Al Thumama Stadium, Aspire Zone and Education City and then moving towards Lusail Stadium, Al Bayt Stadium and Thakira Mangrove Forest. The journey will continue with flybys over The Pearl Island, Al Safliya Island, Katara Cultural Village and West Bay. Before reaching the airport, the aircraft will be flying over the Corniche, National Museum of Qatar, Museum of Islamic Art and Stadium 974 for a grand finish.

With the first tour scheduled for June 27, booking is now available at and priced at QR710 for adults and children over two years of age, and free of charge for children under two. Seats can be reserved for morning and afternoon tours from Thursday to Monday.

The experience is also available for passengers transiting for six or more hours at Hamad International Airport with a starting price of QR85, including private return transfers between Hamad International Airport and Doha International Airport Premium Terminal. ✤
