Chiang Mai becomes Qatar Airways' fourth Thai destination

Posted 16 August 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways will launch flights to beautiful Chiang Mai, its fourth destination in Thailand, as it expands to meet increased demand for Thai destinations from holiday-makers. The new route comes in addition to existing services to the Thai capital Bangkok, and to the top holiday destinations of Phuket and Krabi.

The new four-times weekly seasonal service will operate between Doha and Chiang Mai using a wide-body aircraft, from December 2017 until May 2018.

Laid-back Chiang Mai offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, and has been called the ‘Rose of the North’ in recognition of its calm vibe and lush setting. Nestled amid surrounding rainforest, Chiang Mai offers visitors an amazing authentic Thai experience, with scores of stunning temples, fabulous restaurants and incredible natural scenery.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Thailand continues to grow in popularity with holiday-makers and it’s not hard to see why. Our new flights to Chiang Mai mark our fourth route to this beautiful country, reflecting the demand from our customers for more high-quality leisure destinations.

“Our existing services to Phuket, Krabi and Bangkok are already incredibly popular, especially with customers from European countries such as the UK, France and Germany. Therefore, we are delighted to announce yet another destination, offering our renowned five-star service between Doha and Chiang Mai for leisure travellers. It also demonstrates our commitment to expand our reach with ambitious new routes around the world, taking our passengers to where they want to fly.”
