Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) also plans to arrange flights outside the Gulf for the World Cup. They will operate connecting flights from Karachi and Lahore to Dohar from July.
but it is known that these shuttle flights will not have a baggage carrier. So you have to carry your essentials in your handbag. These bags can carry a maximum of 6 kg in economy class and a maximum of 14 kg in business class.
These flights have to meet certain conditions to go to Doha. The first is a FIFA World Cup match ticket, which will also serve as a visa. The flight will reach Doha four hours before the start of the match. The return flight will be four hours after the end of the match.
