Posted 24 May 2018 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways has commenced flights to London Gatwick Airport.

The new double daily service, operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, makes London Gatwick the award-winning airline’s sixth gateway into the United Kingdom and second gateway to London.

The new route will provide even more flexibility and convenience to passengers travelling to London, and will offer enhanced connectivity for passengers flying from the United Kingdom to Qatar Airways’ extensive global route network of more than 150 destinations. Over the summer period, flights to London Gatwick will further increase to 16 services per week on the popular route.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is delighted to be expanding its reach in both London and throughout the U.K. Earlier this month, we launched direct flights to Cardiff, the capital of Wales, clearly demonstrating our continued commitment to this market. We are very proud of our strong and extensive trade ties with the U.K. and look forward to offering our loyal passengers the chance to explore the newest and most exciting destinations within our global network.”

Gatwick Airport Chief Executive Officer, Stewart Wingate, said: “I am delighted to mark the start of this double daily service to Doha today as Qatar Airways’ extensive route network offers passengers more choice of onward destinations, including those across Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Qatar Airways is also one of the world’s premier airlines and provides a level of service that is sure to prove popular with our passengers.

“This new route also strengthens Gatwick’s growing long-haul network, which has more than 60 routes and we hope to grow it further still in coming months.”
