Qatar Airways has launched thrice-weekly
scheduled flights to the Western Australian city of Perth, the
country’s mining and exploration hub.
Perth becomes Qatar Airways’
second gateway in Australia after Melbourne – and the carrier’s
117th destination worldwide. The route will be operated by the
airline’s flagship long-haul Boeing 777 aircraft.
“There has never been a
better time to expand in Australia – a time when the Australian
dollar is strong and business and leisure travellers worldwide
search for easier and quicker ways to connect and do business,”
said Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer, Mr.
Akbar Al Baker. “Our flight connections to Africa in particular will greatly
please the people of Western Australia, whose strong links with
the mining and business communities in East Africa signal enormous
growth potential. Qatar Airways remains committed to
opening up access to destinations that are largely underserved by
international airlines and have great market potential. Perth is
an example of this ... We sincerely look forward to
growing the Perth route and we are already looking to improve
frequency to a daily service by the end of the year.”
Qatar Airways also operates
daily non-stop scheduled flights from Melbourne to Doha using Boeing 777 long-range aircraft with onward
connections to cities across Europe, Africa, Middle East and both
North and South America.
