   Thursday, June 8, 2017

Gulf Times -- Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) confirmed that there is no intention to cancel Qatar Summer Festival (QSF) or shorten its duration.


Held under the theme "Colour Your Summer", the festival will continue to delight visitors from within and outside Qatar, with an array of enticing travel, hospitality and family-friendly entertainment offers.


The festival’s shopping promotions, which extend until the end of Eid al-Adha, will begin during the last three days of Ramadan, allowing shoppers to enjoy the discounts as they prepare for Eid al-Fitr.


The +Qatar stopover package, launched by QTA and Qatar Airways last month, will also continue to be offered to transiting passengers throughout the summer. The package includes a free night’s stay in a 5- or 4- star hotel in Doha, alongside a free, 96-hour transit visa.


Qatar has seen a notable increase in stopover visitors in recent months, with the number of transit passengers visiting the country increasing by 40% in May 2017 as compared to May 2016.
