Qatar Airways adds Sydney to rapidly growing network from 1 March 2016
Qatar Airways has announced its highly anticipated daily direct services from Doha to Sydney starting from 1st March 2016, the third Australian city in the Qatar Airways network. Currently, the Doha-based carrier operates daily non-stop flights to Melbourne and Perth with a total of 14 services each week.
The evening departure timings in both directions provide convenient travel times for passengers, and enhance connectivity to attractive business and leisure destinations across Qatar Airways’ ever-expanding global network.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming Qatar Airways to Sydney Airport. As Skytrax’s 2015 Airline of the Year, Qatar Airways will provide passengers with a quality product and greater connectivity to destinations around the world,” said Sydney Airport Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Kerrie Mather.
“The new daily service will significantly boost inbound tourism to New South Wales (NSW), as well as create an estimated 3,000 jobs, including 2,500 in NSW, and contribute over $240 million to the Australian economy. Qatar Airways’ service will also provide greater air cargo access to the Middle East and the growing Qatar market, which is great for NSW exports.”
The Doha-Sydney daily flights will be operated by the Boeing 777-300 aircraft which offers Qatar Airways’ award-winning in-flight hospitality and luxurious comfort across both cabins.[boxify cols_use =”1″ cols =”1″ position =”none” order =”none” box_spacing =”10″ padding =”10″ background_color =”#3c3c3c” border_style =”solid” ]Daily flights between Doha and Sydney from 1 March 2016 (all times local)
