Rail&Fly - a convenient way to travel to more destinations in Germany

In cooperation with Deutsche Bahn, Qatar Airways is offering its passengers the opportunity to travel with Deutsche Bahn to more than 5.600 DB train stations in Germany from any German airport serviced by Qatar Airways (Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin).

Simply choose „Railway Germany (QYG)“ and the train segment will be included in your itinerary.

Important information

Rail&Fly is only valid in combination with an international flight on Qatar Airways.

The journey times stated in your booking are no real connection data as due to technical reasons, there can only be displayed fictitious times. Please go to to check the times of train connections on the actual travel date.

DB Rail&Fly tickets are only valid in DB trains and not in regional or local connections within a local transport authority, like S-Bahn (urban railway), underground railway or tram. Exceptions might be applicable for connections from/to the airport.

Please note that Rail&Fly is online not available for multiple stop bookings. Rail&Fly cannot be added to a completed online booking afterwards.  
Please note that your itinerary has to include “Rail and Fly (QYG)” to be inclusive of the train ticket. The fare that is mentioned in the booking process is only then including the train ticket.

How to get my Rail & Fly train tickets?

Two options are offered for collecting your ticket. 72 hours before the respective journey, you can either

  1. Pick up your Rail&Fly ticket at a DB long-distance vending machine or
  2. Print your Rail&Fly ticket out from the internet

You can find detailed information on the different options for collecting your ticket in the following sections.

For the return journey, you can choose a different ticket type than for your outbound journey. Once you have printed the ticket for one journey the other ticket option will be cancelled and it is not possible to switch to the other ticket type afterwards.


  1. Pick up your Rail&Fly ticket at a DB long-distance vending machine

    After completing your online booking, you will receive a confirmation e-mail as well as a second e-mail from Qatar Airways which is indicating one pickup number per direction, that is two pickup numbers per person for return journeys.

    Use these pickup numbers to collect your Rail&Fly train ticket from 72 hours prior to departure at any DB long-distance ticket machine at your DB departure station. Please ensure that such a long-distance ticket machine can be found at your departure station.

    If you have not received an e-mail by Qatar Airways with your pickup numbers, please contact your local Qatar Airways office.
