Qatar Airways has launched scheduled flights
between Doha and Brussels in Belgium.
The addition of Brussels strengthens Qatar
Airways’ European presence to 24 destinations, representing 25% of
the carrier’s global network that also spans the Middle East,
Africa, Asia Pacific and North and South America.
Brussels becomes the third new European
destination launched by the airline this month following on the
heels of the
Hungarian capital, Budapest, and Romania’s capital
city, Bucharest. The latest route launch edges Qatar Airways
closer towards the milestone 100 destinations with Brussels
becoming the carrier’s 98th network point.
“Brussels Airport and local
authorities have been extremely supportive, believing in Qatar
Airways and giving us the opportunity to fly direct to this
wonderful capital city. In doing so, we are able to provide
business and leisure travellers with an alternative travel option
and great choice of diverse destinations to fly to via our hub in
Doha,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. “Be it Singapore, Bangkok, Tokyo, Hanoi, Phuket,
Mumbai, Goa, Dubai, Muscat, Johannesburg or Melbourne, our network
of cities offers convenience, comfort and a seamless travel
experience for our customers from Belgium, so too for our
passengers flying to Brussels from across our international
network via Doha.”
A blend of picturesque medieval streets,
inspiring architecture, scores of museums, bustling boulevards and
varied cultural influences makes up the sprawling metropolis of
Brussels, which is home to over one million people.
The Doha – Brussels route is served with a wide
body Airbus A330 featuring up to 30 seats in Business Class and up
to 275 seats in Economy.
