The service allows match ticket holders to travel from Dubai to Doha and return the same day

Dubai-based carrier Flydubai has opened bookings on its website for Match Day Shuttle flights between Dubai and Doha for the upcoming football World Cup in Qatar.

Return Match Day Shuttle flights will be available from US$258 in Economy Class and from US$998 in Business Class.

Passengers are permitted to carry hand baggage and will have access to complimentary ground transportation between the airport and the stadiums where matches are being played.

With a high frequency of flights each day, the carrier advised its passengers to select a flight that lands in Doha at least four hours before their chosen match begins

All passengers are also advised to register for their Hayya card in advance of their flight as this will be required for travel on all Match Day Shuttle flights and for entry to Qatar.

For the duration of the tournament, Flydubai will operate up to 30 daily return flights  from Dubai World Central (DWC) to Hamad International Airport (DOH) and will be exclusively available to match ticket holders.
