Qatar Airways has set out on a GCC-wide promotional roadshow to meet key travel trade and industry partners.

The first stop on the month-long tour is Dubai. The GCC promotional roadshow then travels to Kuwait City on January 14 followed by Bahrain on January 18, with Qatar Airways’ Doha base the next port of call on January 25. Three days later on January 28, the event moves onto Abu Dhabi, before concluding in Muscat two weeks later on February 10.

Press briefings and gala dinners will be held in each GCC location, where local VIP’s, travel industry partners, Privilege Club frequent flyer members and corporates will enjoy an evening of fine dining and entertainment, as well as presentations on the airline’s first new route of 2009 - Houston.

The new Houston link will be the Qatar national carrier’s first foray into the southern United States, connecting two significant global energy centres. Houston will complement Qatar Airways’ popular existing US routes to New York and Washington DC, launched in mid-2007. The airline currently offers daily non-stop flights between Doha and both New York’s JFK International Airport and Washington Dulles.

Qatar Airways launches daily non-stop flights between Doha and Houston – the airline’s third US gateway city – on March 30, using Boeing 777-200 Long Range aircraft in a two-class configuration. The airline will fly daily to Houston’s George Bush International Airport. At almost 17 hours flying time, the Doha – Houston route will be one of the longest non-stop flights in the world.
