Qatar Airways Adds Capacity to Key European Destinations

Qatar Airways will fly a greater number of passengers to their preferred European destinations this winter.

From this month onwards, Qatar Airways passengers can enjoy a greater choice of travel options as three popular European routes – Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; Manchester, U.K. – all receive aircraft upgrades.

 Manchester and Stockholm routes will be upgraded from an Airbus A350 to a Boeing 777, and the Helsinki route will also be upgraded from an Airbus A320 to a larger Airbus A330.

In addition, the frequency of flights to the airline’s second gateway to London, Gatwick, has also been increased from 14 to 16 weekly flights, with immediate effect. The popular route, which is serviced by the state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner, was re-introduced in May and is Qatar Airways’ sixth U.K. gateway.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “We invite all passengers to enjoy the additional capacity and flexibility provided by these aircraft upgrades and increased frequencies. We are dedicated to giving our customers more choice and flexibility when planning their business and leisure trips to and from Europe, enabling them to connect seamlessly at Hamad International Airport to more than 160 global destinations. We now provide direct services to more than 50 European cities, and our European route network is expanding rapidly.”
