Qatar Airways Launches Second Daily Flights to New York

Qatar Airways has added a second daily, non-stop flight to its popular route between John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) in New York City and Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Doha.

The flights, which are being operated with the new and hugely popular Airbus A350, depart JFK in the morning allowing passengers to arrive in Doha the morning of the following day.

This new route is evidence of our rapid growth in the United States, said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. By offering a second flight from JFK, we provide our leisure and business travellers with convenient connections, via Doha, to top destinations in Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and the Far East. In particular, business travel between New York City and Singapore on Qatar Airways is now one of our most popular routes, offering business travellers a best-in-class experience featuring the Airbus 350 the most technologically advanced aircraft in commercial aviation flying today on every leg of the journey.

Qatar Airways was the global launch partner of the A350 in 2015. The airline currently operates eight of the advanced aircraft on four different continents, including routes to Frankfurt, Munich, Singapore, and from next month, Adelaide.

In the United States the A350 currently operates to Philadelphia and Boston, in addition to the second daily flight to New Yorks JFK International Airport.

Qatar Airways has an additional 72 A350s on order, and maintains one of the youngest, most advanced fleets in the skies.

Along with Qatar Airways services and amenities, the A350 features an innovative system for the reduction of jet lag. By using a high precision air management system to reduce cabin pressure and optimise humidity, along with a dynamic LED lighting system to manage passenger melatonin levels, the A350 combats the effects of international travel and leaves passengers feeling more refreshed upon arrival.

The Airbus A350 is an iconic commercial aircraft of the next decade, added Mr. Al Baker. We were proud to be a part of its inception and we look forward to introducing this unparalleled aircraft with business and leisure travellers along our New York Doha route.
