Qatar Airways touched down at Tokyo Haneda International Airport for the first time on June 18th marking the airlines’ third destination in Japan. The inaugural flight also marked the first time that a Qatar Airways B787 Dreamliner has operated to one of their three destinations in Japan. Qatar Airways has been operating to the Land of the Rising Sun, with routes to Osaka and Tokyo Narita, since 2005 and 2010 respectively.
“Qatar Airways is thrilled that we have further expanded our operations to the dynamic city of Tokyo. This new route will provide our passengers, both in Japan and throughout the rest of our network, with even more options and flexibility when travelling, whether it be for business or leisure,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.
The route will bring the number of Qatar Airways’ flights to Japan up from 14 to 21 frequencies each week.
