Qatar Airways’ first daily regularly-scheduled A350 service to London Heathrow arrived in the United Kingdom on Sunday 30 October, as the airline introduced the state-of-the-art aircraft on the route, complementing the existing ‘best of fleet’ on its six daily flights from Hamad International Airport. The aircraft joins the airline’s A380, B777 and A330 aircraft currently operating the route.

Qatar Airways was the global launch customer for the Airbus A350 XWB in January 2015 and currently operates 11 A350s, with a further 69 on order, across its global network. It is the first airline to fly the A350 to three continents, the first airline to fly the A350 to the United States, and the largest operator of the A350.
