Minimum Connectng Time (MCT)


Qatar Airways and code-share & interline partners have established minimum intervals, which must allow passengers to make a connection between flights at an airport or city. These intervals are called Minimum Connecting Times (MCTs) and default based on various considerations, e.g. online (intraline) or interline connection, terminal or airport change, combination of domestic or international sectors, flights to specific territories, etc.

According to industry practice, MCT is guaranteed in following scenarios:

  • Seats have been sold from QR online (intraline) or interline availability.
  • All segments have been ticketed on one document, subject that all applicable Fare Basis allow ticketing on one document. Segments have been either booked from intraline/interline availability or MCT has been verified manually.
  • In case of feeder service ticketed on separate document of same validating carrier (issued in connection with prime itinerary), where Fare Basis rules do not allow ticketing on one document. Segments have been either booked from intraline/interline availability or MCT has been verified manually.

  • Segments sold separately and MCT is not adhered.
