900 flights to Qatar – level 2
Qatar is hosting the FIFA World Championship from November 20 until December 18.
The country expects 1.2 million visitors to arrive for the championship, which creates more than 900 flights every day. People set up a special area at Hamad International Airport for fans when they arrive or leave. Qatar will work use two airports in Doha, one of which it reopened only for the championship.
Qatar Airways has many planes ready for use in the second week of the championship. The airline expects that fans will book tickets once their teams get to the semi-final, and these planes will fly to the winning countries.
Difficult words: flight (fly through the air), reopen (to open again), semi-final (the set of games before the final game).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
