Effective 1 May 2014, Qatar Airways will commence daily direct flights to Edinburgh. This is a boost to the recently launched five-weekly flights on the same route. The new service will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in a two class configuration – 22 in business class and 232 in economy.
Qatar Airways group chief executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said: “The popularity of the route has encouraged us to offer a daily service. This also supports and promotes Scotland’s leisure and business opportunities to different markets on our airline’s global network.”
The flight QR 027 will depart from Doha at 07:45, arriving in Edinburgh at 13:00. The return flight QR 028 will depart Edinburgh at 14:30, arriving in Doha at 23:30.
