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.
