Qatar Airways is looking to introduce services to London Gatwick airport and Ireland, according to a report in Bloomberg.
Richard Oliver, country manager for the UK and Ireland for the carrier, revealed slots at Heathrow are rare and flying to Gatwick would be the next best option.
Qatar Airways introduced a Boeing 787 to Heathrow last week, where it already boasts six daily flights.
But the intention is to add further supply to southwest England with the possibility of an additional Scottish airport.
“We still see huge potential for growth in Britain,” Oliver was quoted as saying.
“There’s a stable economy, a valuable currency and a firm market”.
He also revealed that either Dublin in Ireland or Belfast in Northern Ireland could be options for the carrier.
