To celebrate the launch of Qatar Airways’ new direct service to Gothenburg, Sweden, Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, has hosted a press conference in Gothenburg.

 

Al Baker highlighted the award-winning airline’s robust expansion plans, as well as its commitment to bringing more visitors to Sweden and to connecting Gothenburg to its extensive global network via the award-winning Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are tremendously pleased to launch our new direct service to Gothenburg, our second gateway into Sweden. Gothenburg is both an important business centre and a growing tourist destination which is becoming increasingly popular with visitors. This new gateway will offer our Swedish passengers even more convenience and enhanced connectivity to an extensive choice of destinations on our global route network. We invite all to experience the unique charm of Gothenburg, and look forward to welcoming passengers on board.”

Swedavia President and chief executive officer, Jonas Abrahamsson, said: “Sweden is Scandinavia’s largest economy and one of Europe’s strongest. New direct routes are an important contributing factor, as improved market connectivity is crucial for Sweden´s tourism, businesses, ability to attract investments and exchange of knowledge.

"We are very pleased to welcome Qatar Airways to Gothenburg, its second gateway into Sweden. We are also delighted that in five years, Qatar Airways has doubled traffic on the direct route between Doha and Stockholm, significantly increasing connectivity between Sweden and the rest of the world.”
