MASTERLIST: Stopover Programme

Hier mal die guten Stopover Programme …

Die Stopover und Layover Programme der Airlines können wirklich spannend sein. Einige Airlines bieten kostenlose Stopover. Dann gibt es bei anderen Fluglinien Hotelübernachtungen bei einem längeren Layover. Turkish, Qatar und Saudia scheinen die spannendsten Programme laufen zu haben.

Stopover? Layover? Eigentlich gibt es einen Unterschied zwischen Stopover und Layover. Layover wäre unter 24 Stunden und Stopover über 24 Stunden.

    1. Interessant, dh in UAE jetzt kostenloses Hotel bei entsprechendem Ticket Preis, und man kann die Flugverbindungen selber so legen?

      Hatte das 2016 bei Etihad gemacht, da gab es für C 1 Nacht in einem von 6 5* Hotels, bei F 2 Nächte. Für Limo war ich not eligible, da mit Etihad Flugnummer auf Jet Airways Blech. Trotzdem ein netter Stopover mit etwas Sightseeing und Bekannte treffen.

    2. Also bei RJ klappt es (zumindest in Business) auch, wenn es noch einen späteren ankommenden Flug gibt, der die Mindestaufenthaltsdauer für das Stopover-Angebot unterschreiten würde. Bin nach Ankunft in Amman aus Kairo am Nachmittag (es hätte auch noch einen Abendflug gegeben, aber halt nicht zum günstigsten Preis; Weiterflug nach BKK war um 2.15 Uhr nachts) einfach zum Transferschalter, wo man schon einen Hotel- und einen Dinner-Gutschein für mich vorbereitet hatte. Hatte eigentlich mit Ablehnung gerechnet. Man wird vorbei an den Schlangen von Normalsterblichen durch die Passkontrolle eskortiert und im Minivan ins fünf Minuten entfernte Hotel gebracht. Zimmer war schon sehr schlicht, und dem Bad könnte eine Renovierung nicht schaden, aber für mich waren bei knapp über 8 Stunden die private Dusch- und Schlafmöglichkeit ausschlaggebend. Die Lounge ist zwar definitiv eleganter als das Hotel, aber man hat halt weniger Privatsphäre. Insgesamt ist der Service sehr gut organisiert und zeitlich gut durchgeplant, man muss nur wissen, dass man am Hotelschalter (gegenüber dem Transferschalter, von dem man die Gutscheine erhält) das Telefon benutzen muss um den Begleiter herbeizurufen, falls dort gerade niemand sitzt. Steht zwar auf einem kleinen Schild, aber das fiel mir erst nach einer halben Stunde Warten auf.
