Qatar Airways to Launch Chiang Mai Flights in December

Qatar Airways is to expand its rapidly growing services to the Kingdom of Thailand with flights to the northern city of Chiang Mai.

The new route, Qatar Airways' fourth destination in the country, comes in addition to existing services to the Thai capital Bangkok, and to the popular beach destinations of Phuket and Krabi in the south.

The new four-times weekly seasonal service will operate between Doha and Chiang Mai (CNX), using a wide-body aircraft, from December 2017 until May 2018.

Chiang Mai will be Qatar Airways' fourth destination in the Kingdom of Thailand

Flights between Doha and Chiang Mai will operate every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday. Flight QR822 from Doha (DOH) to Chiang Mai (CNX) is scheduled to depart at 20:05 and arrive at 06:00 the following day (Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun). The return leg, QR823, will depart Chiang Mai at 07:10 to arrive back in Doha at 10:55 (Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun).

 Thailand continues to grow in popularity with holiday-makers and its not hard to see why. Our new flights to Chiang Mai mark our fourth route to this beautiful country, reflecting the demand from our customers for more high-quality leisure destinations, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. Our existing services to Phuket, Krabi and Bangkok are already incredibly popular, especially with customers from European countries such as the UK, France and Germany. Therefore, we are delighted to announce yet another destination, offering our renowned five-star service between Doha and Chiang Mai for leisure travellers. It also demonstrates our commitment to expand our reach with ambitious new routes around the world, taking our passengers to where they want to fly.

Qatar Airways first started flying to Thailand in 1996 with a service to Bangkok. Flights then followed to Phuket and Krabi. The airline currently offers five daily flights from Doha to Bangkok, as well as a double-daily service from Doha to Phuket and three flights a week from Doha to Krabi. Later this year, Krabi will become a daily service, which means the total number of flights each week to Thailand will rise to 60.
