Qatar Airways has now announced yet another set of destinations which will launch starting 2017-18. This will include the airline’s fifth and 11th destinations in Australia and the United States respectively. The new destinations will be:
- Canberra, Australia
- Dublin, Ireland
- Las Vegas, United States
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- Santiago de Chile, Chile
- Medan, Indonesia
- Tabuk and Yanbu, Saudi Arabia
Qatar currently serves Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia and Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia and Washington in the US. It will be the first ME3 carrier to serve both these destinations.
These are just a few of the destinations the airline has yet to inaugurate. In February the airline will be starting the world’s longest commercial flight from Doha to Auckland, along with flights to Sarajevo, Skopje, Libreville, Nice, Chiang Mai and Douala.
Next month the carrier will launch flights to Krabi, Thailand and Mahe, Seychelles on December 6th and 12th respectively.
Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said:
“Qatar Airways offers the world the best network, the best on board experience and the best connecting experience at Hamad International Airport. We operate the world’s youngest fleet, averaging just five years old, and we fly the most technologically advanced aircraft that provide our passengers with an award-winning experience while also ensuring the most efficient and environmentally friendly operations.
“Our intention is to ensure our passengers can choose Qatar Airways for all of their travel needs – whether they are flying on business, for pleasure, or a combination of both.
“With today’s network announcement, we will be able to connect more people to more places than any other Gulf airline, and we will ensure our passengers will delight in the journey. At Qatar Airways, we are going places together with our passengers, and we look forward to welcoming these new destinations in 2017-18.”
