Qatar Airways has launched scheduled flights to Oslo, the capital of one of the top oil nations in the world. Oslo is Qatar Airways third Scandinavian gateway after Stockholm and Copenhagen.

We are delighted to add this vibrant, scenic city of Oslo to our global route network, further strengthening our operations in Scandinavia and clearly proving how important this dynamic travel market is for Qatar Airways. We now operate 19 flights a week across three Scandinavian cities making Qatar Airways the biggest Gulf carrier in the Nordic market, said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. We look forward to bringing visitors from around the world to this diverse cultural city and to the great leisure and business destinations in the region. Norway has limitless attractions of mountains and fjords, a great magnet for tourists from around the world to experience and enjoy.
