Qatar Airways has confirmed that its eagerly
anticipated daily Doha - Cardiff flights will begin on 1 May 2018.
The inaugural flight will be operated with an
Airbus A350-900 and thereafter with Boeing 787 aircraft with 22
seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class. The wings
of the Airbus A350 are built in Wales.
Flight QR321 is scheduled to depart Doha (DOH)
on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 07:25 and land in
Cardiff (CWL) at 12:50. Flight QR322 is timed to leave Cardiff at
15:55 and land in Doha at 00:45 the following day.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, flight QR323
will depart Doha at 01:15 and land in Cardiff at 06:40. The return
flight from Cardiff to Doha, QR 324 will depart Cardiff at 08:00
and land in Doha at 17:00.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr.
Akbar Al Baker, said, “The launch of our new service to
Cardiff is a major milestone for Qatar Airways. It makes sense
that the inaugural flight that welcomes Qatar Airways to Wales is
on the A350-900, as the wings of this very plane are built at the
Airbus plant in Broughton, North Wales. The new service will
connect the Welsh people with more destinations globally and
provide them the opportunity to experience our unparalleled
five-star service. We look forward to welcoming our new passengers
on board and to connecting them to Doha and points beyond.”
Qatar Airways currently serves London Heathrow,
Manchester, Birmingham, and Edinburgh, with service to London
Gatwick to commence on 22 May 2018.
