Qatar Air­ways’ new Auck­land-Doha route links New Zealan­ders to 150 des­ti­na­tions.

Sunday Star-Times - Escape - - FRONT PAGE -

The world’s long­est flight takes 17.5 hours and cov­ers 14,535km, and knocks Air In­dia’s 15,127km, 15-hour Del­hiSan Fran­cisco route off its world record perch.

Un­for­tu­nately, the first pas­sen­gers on the new route won’t get Qatar’s state-of-theart Air­bus A350s, in­stead they’ll fly in on Boe­ing 777s.

A new tran­sit visa scheme al­lows vis­i­tors to Doha an upto-96-hour stopover in the fab­u­lous city.
