Qatar Airways to deploy B787 on Scandinavian routes

25 Jun 2013 by GrahamSmith

Qatar Airways is to deploy a Boeing 787 on three Scandinavian routes from August.

The Doha-based airline will launch Dreamliner flights to Stockholm on August 1, followed a month later on September 1 to Copenhagen and Oslo.

The carrier operates daily flights to each of the three Scandinavian capitals, totalling 21 services each week - selected flights will be served by Qatar Airways Dreamliners.

Akbar Al Baker, the airline's CEO, said: "Our Scandinavian routes have grown in stature and importance since we began flying to the region in 2007.

"I am delighted that our Dreamliners will be introduced to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo very soon providing our passengers with an unparalleled level of service and comfort to and from Scandinavia.

"I have always said the Dreamliner is a state-of-the-art aircraft designed to change the passenger travel experience because of the space, comfort, interior look and feel and, from an operational point of view, a highly fuel-efficient jet aircraft."

Qatar Airways currently operates five Boeing 787s, flying on the London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich and Dubai routes from Doha.

The airline last week took delivery of its sixth Dreamliner at the Paris Air Show, where the aircraft was open for VIP, trade and media tours.

Qatar Airways currently has a further 54 Dreamliners on order.

The carrier yesterday announced that it is upping the flight frequency on its Cairo route to triple daily (see online news, June 24).
