The Doha bid calls for the Olympics to be held from Oct. 2-18 and the Paralympics from Nov. 4-15.
The dates were disclosed Monday as organizers released details of the bid file that was submitted last week to the International Olympic Committee.
A statement from organizers says the October dates would “ensure ideal conditions” for athletes and spectators.
Doha is competing against Madrid, Tokyo, Istanbul and Baku, Azerbaijan.
Qatar, which will host the 2022 World Cup, has tried to ease fears about the heat by promising air-conditioned stadiums and other areas.
