It will be the fourth North American destination for Qatar Airways, joining New York, Washington and Houston, and will make the airline the first Gulf carrier to serve Montreal.
Qatar says that the scheduling of the new flights will allow convenient connections in Doha to cities including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait, Beirut, Tehran, Bangkok, Singapore, Tokyo, Ho Chi Minh City, Delhi, Mumbai and Karachi.
