Qatar Airways lines up Gatwick flights
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.
