Qatar Airways is to launch a new service from Birmingham Airport to Doha’s Hamad International Airport from next March.
The eight Boeing 787 Dreamliner flights per week – including two flights on Saturdays – will add to the airline’s existing services from Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh.
The aircraft will have a two-cabin configuration, comprising of 22 seats in business class and 232 economy class seats.
Economy class customers will have 10.6-inch screens and in business class every seat will be an aisle seat and be convertible into a fully-flat bed.
There will also be Wi-Fi available throughout the aircraft.
Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “This additional route strengthens Qatar Airways’ commitment to the regions across the UK and will create new commercial and leisure links between the city of Birmingham and the 152 destinations served by the airline.”
Qatar Airways UK and Ireland country manager, Richard Oliver, said: “The addition of Birmingham to the Qatar Airways network marks an important milestone in our commitment to the UK market.
“Following our recent increase in services to both Edinburgh and Manchester, Qatar Airways will operate a total of 71 flights a week between the United Kingdom and Qatar from March 2016.”
The departure times in both directions provide onward connections to 152 destinations across Qatar Airways’ global network including Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangkok and Hong Kong.
