Doha (DOH) – Temporary Layover Hotel

The Company has advised that starting on December 15, we will be operating a route to DOH.

Due to local regulations related to COVID-19, please be advised that foreign airline crew are not permitted to enter the country. During this time, crew will be accommodated at an in-terminal, airside hotel during layovers:

Oryx Airport Hotel
Hamad International Airport
Doha, Qatar
Tel.: +974 4010 8100

The hotel is located airside within walking distance to the gates, so crew will not be required to clear customs and immigration to check in. You will also not be subject to submit to a COVID-19 test upon arrival or present arrival documents.

Once checked in, there are no self-quarantine measures in place at the hotel, so you will be able to walk around the facilities and terminal, and take advantage of the amenities, such as the gym and pool, with limited capacity and physical distancing measures.

Additionally, the hotel has 24-hour room service food delivery from restaurants in the airport terminal, which you can find online at

This is a temporary solution and once local regulations change a permanent crew hotel will be sourced.

In Solidarity,
