Qatar Airways has unveiled plans to launch flights to Los Angeles, Boston and Atlanta.

With these new destinations, Qatar Airways will offer daily nonstop services to all ten of the largest metropolitan areas of the United States.

 Effective 1 January 2016, Qatar Airways will commence daily flights to Los Angeles, California, the second largest city in the United States, with Boeing 777 aircraft which features a two-class cabin with 42 Business Class fully lie-flat seats in a 2-2-2 configuration.

From 16 March 2016, the airline will launch daily flights to Boston, the capital and largest city of Massachusetts, and will operate the A350 XWB in a two-class configuration with 36 Business Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, featuring an 80” fully flat bed and 17” HD inflight entertainment screen.

Atlanta, Georgia, the business centre of the southeast region of the United States, will be Qatar Airways’ third new route to the US, and will commence with daily flights starting on 1 July 2016. The route will be operated with Boeing 777 aircraft.

Increasing passenger demand to America’s largest city and financial centre, New York, has prompted Qatar Airways to add a second daily service to the city from 1 March 2016. Qatar Airways has served the city daily since the initial route launch in 2007. The second daily service to New York’s JFK will be operated by the Airbus A350 XWB aircraft providing passengers an opportunity to experience both the Boeing B777 and the A350 aircraft types on the route.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker said, "As Qatar Airways continues its global expansion, we are delighted to be offering even more gateways in the United States, connecting passengers from destinations across the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, Africa and Southeast Asia. We look forward to offering a great travel experience to our US passengers on the World's Best Business Class across our network of more than 140 destinations, with a convenient one-stop transfer at the new state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport in Doha.”

Qatar Airways’ on-board experience and service is renowned and provides an unparalleled commitment to service quality, as exemplified by being ranked twice in a row as the best in Business Class, and also by being named World’s Best Airline in 2011 and 2012 at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.

The airline has seen rapid growth in just 18 years of operation to the point where today it is flying a modern fleet of 156 aircraft to 146 key business and leisure destinations. Among the 146 destinations currently served are Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Mumbai, New Delhi, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Jakarta and the Maldives – all with excellent connections from the US cities.
