Qatar Airways confirms Birmingham flights
Published: 23/07/2012 - Filed under: News »
Gulf carrier Qatar Airways has confirmed that it will launch flights from Birmingham airport, its third UK destination, and is also in talks with two other unnamed UK airports.
A statement issued by the carrier reads:
“Qatar Airways is committed to the UK market, where we currently operate 45 non-stop flights each week between the UK and the State of Qatar. Our UK capacity is currently split between two airports, five-times-a-day to London Heathrow and ten flights each week to Manchester.
“The UK represents the largest single European market for Qatar Airways with the high level of frequencies we operate. Naturally, as part of our growth plans, we are considering opening up new UK gateways to offer customers more choice.
“We can confirm we are planning to launch passenger flights to Birmingham, but are not yet in a position to announce a date nor schedules.
“As for the other two UK airports we are interested in, we cannot comment further on these as we are currently in the process of carrying out feasibility studies.”

British Airways , British government if this continues your airline will soon be a small European carrier. We, in EU give it away to these airlnes, they undercut on price until they got the market.
There is NO European airline flying to Australia anymore.
Stop these freedoms, ACT now. The German government leads the way already by not granting anymore flights.
