Qatar Airways to expand US flights to include Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit
Qatar Airways plans to expand operations in the United States next year by adding direct flights from Doha to several major American cities, CEO Akbar al-Baker has said.
Flights to Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit should become available as the airline begins to receive its much-delayed order of Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
Gulf Times reports:
A daily New York service will also be increased to three flights a day, with the addition of links via cities in Eastern and Western Europe, al-Baker said in Montreal. The airline has daily flights to Washington and Houston.
“Qatar Airways is in the midst of a very aggressive expansion plan,” al-Baker said. “The only thing that stopped us from going earlier is the delayed delivery of the 787s,” he said about the US flights.
Well, this is exciting information – though, perhaps, not for competitors Lufthansa and KLM.
