The Business Travel Magazine - - The Review -

Qatar air­ways will in­tro­duce flights from Lon­don Gatwick Air­port to its Doha hub this sum­mer. The dou­bledaily ser­vice will com­mence on May 22, three weeks af­ter it launches flights from Cardiff.

The air­ports be­come the air­line’s fifth and sixth UK des­ti­na­tions, join­ing Lon­don Heathrow, Manch­ester, Birm­ing­ham and Ed­in­burgh.

Flights will be op­er­ated by B787 Dream­liner air­craft – with 22 seats in busi­ness class and 232 in econ­omy – and form part of a joint busi­ness ven­ture with Bri­tish Air­ways.

“The United King­dom is one of our most im­por­tant mar­kets, and one in which we have in­creased our ca­pac­ity sig­nif­i­cantly over the years,” says Qatar Air­ways Group Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Ak­bar Al Baker.
