Travel Daily ME - - News -

To cel­e­brate this spe­cial oc­ca­sion, the air­line flew its nextgen­er­a­tion Air­bus A350 air­craft to Dublin, giv­ing guests and key me­dia the op­por­tu­nity to tour the air­craft.

This was the first time a com­mer­cial pas­sen­ger Air­bus A350 air­craft has landed on Ir­ish soil and the feed­back from those on board was pos­i­tive.

Go­ing for­ward, Qatar Air­ways will op­er­ate its daily Dublin ser­vice with a Boe­ing 787 Dream­liner, which has a two-class con­fig­u­ra­tion in­clud­ing 22 seats in Busi­ness Class and 232 seats in Econ­omy Class.

Qatar Air­ways Group Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, His Ex­cel­lency Mr. Ak­bar Al Baker said: “The launch of our new ser­vice to Dublin is an im­por­tant mile­stone for Qatar Air­ways.

The new ser­vice will con­nect the Ir­ish peo­ple with more des­ti­na­tions glob­ally and pro­vide them the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence our five-star ser­vice.

We look for­ward to wel­com­ing our new pas­sen­gers on board and to con­nect­ing them to Doha and be­yond.”

daa Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Mr. Kevin Toland, said: “We want to ex­press our warm­est wel­come to Qatar Air­ways and its new route be­tween Dublin and Doha.

This is a fan­tas­tic ad­di­tion to our se­lec­tion of des­ti­na­tions, and it is a great op­por­tu­nity to boost Ire­land’s tourism.”

The launch of the new route to Dublin will be Qatar Air­ways’ first-ever ser­vice to the Repub­lic of Ire­land, giv­ing pas­sen­gers eas­ier ac­cess to the Mid­dle East, Asia and Aus­tralia, with seam­less con­nec­tions to Syd­ney, Hong Kong, Mel­bourne and many more at­trac­tive des­ti­na­tions.

Dublin is a hub for more than 1,000 lead­ing multi-na­tional com­pa­nies and the daily non-stop ser­vice will con­nect both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers to the air­line’s ex­ten­sive net­work.
