Qatar Airways has launched daily, non-stop
flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Hamad
International Airport (DOH) in Doha.
The new route is being operated by Boeing
777-200 aircraft and represents Qatar Airways' first passenger
service to the West Coast of the United States.
The expansion to LAX is the first of three
new US destinations planned for 2016, along with Boston (BOS) on
16 March and Atlanta (ATL) on 1 June 2016.
“We are honoured to bring our award-winning
service to Los Angeles,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive,
Akbar Al Baker. “This great city embodies the
glamour and sophistication that gave rise to the ’jet set’
lifestyle, when travel truly started to be part of our life
experience. It is only fitting that we bring the world’s best
airline experience to the people of Los Angeles ... As passionate homes for sport,
fashion, art and world-class entertainment, this new Qatar Airways
service forms a bridge spanning continents and cultures, which
will further strengthen our cultural and commercial bonds.”
