Qatar Airways to Resume Double-Daily Hong Kong Flights

Qatar Airways has confirmed that it will resume full operations of both daily services between Hong Kong and Doha, effective 16 February 2016.

The two daily Hong Kong-Doha flights are currently jointly operated by Qatar Airways and its oneworld alliance member Cathay Pacific. The latter first started servicing Doha directly in March 2014.

The resumption of our twice-daily services on the Hong Kong-Doha route will strengthen our competitiveness and leadership in one of the world's key global aviation hubs. Next year will mark a decade of successful operations for Qatar Airways in Hong Kong and we are pleased to inform our Hong Kong-based passengers that they can look forward to our award-winning hospitality on-board both daily flights departing from Hong Kong direct to our state-of-the-art home Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar, from February 16, 2016 onwards, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. Cathay Pacific remains one of our important strategic partners within the oneworld alliance and I am confident both Qatar Airways and Cathay Pacific will continue to explore mutual business cooperation opportunities in the future.

The operating carrier change will have minimum impact on passengers who are booked on Cathay Pacific-operated flights from Hong Kong to Doha after 15 February. Affected passengers will be re-accommodated on the Qatar Airways-operated flight due to operate on the same schedule.

Qatar Airways' current codeshare arrangements on Cathay Pacific beyond Hong Kong to Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Japan remain unchanged.
