Qatar Airways announces the next phase of its USA route development with the introduction of three new routes to Los Angeles, Boston and Atlanta.
Effective 1 January 2016, Qatar Airways will commence daily flights to Los Angeles, California with the airline’s flagship B777 aircraft.
From 16 March 2016, the airline will launch daily flights to Boston and will operate its latest flagship A350 XWB.
Atlanta, Georgia, will be Qatar Airways’ third new route to the US and will commence with daily flights starting on 1 July 2016. The route will be operated with the airline’s flagship B777 aircraft.
Increasing passenger demand to America’s largest city and financial centre, New York, has prompted Qatar Airways to add a second daily service to the city from 1 March 2016. Qatar Airways has served the city daily since the initial route launch in 2007. The second daily service to New York’s JFK will be operated by the A350 XWB aircraft providing passengers an opportunity to experience both the B777 and the A350 aircraft types on the route.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker said: “As Qatar Airways continues its global expansion, we are delighted to be offering even more gateways in the United States, connecting passengers from destinations across the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, Africa and Southeast Asia.
