Posted 6 July 2018 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways has upgraded its capacity to the Scottish capital, Edinburgh to the Airbus A350-900.

 

The daily service between Doha and Edinburgh was previously operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive,. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Our Doha to Edinburgh flights have performed exceptionally well since we launched the route four years ago. We have gradually increased capacity on the route by providing additional frequencies, and we are delighted to now offer a latest generation aircraft with more seating capacity, the Airbus A350-900, for which we were the Global Launch Customer.

“Our Edinburgh service has been connecting the people of Scotland to Qatar Airways’ destinations around the world since 2014, with one seamless connection in Doha, and we look forward to continuing our unparalleled five-star service and welcoming our passengers on board.”

The Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport,  Gordon Dewar, said: “The A350 is an exceptional aircraft that brings something special to what is an already stellar service, and we are excited to welcome it to Edinburgh as the only A350 in operation in Scotland. And the increase in capacity is a sign of the increasing demand for the Doha route which has been one of our top performers since its introduction in 2014.

“We have a fantastic relationship with Qatar Airways, and I am delighted to see that partnership continue. We continue to connect Scotland to the world and now fly to more than 150 destinations, and by providing greater choice to passengers, we will be able to see continued growth at Scotland’s busiest airport.”
