Qatar Airways is expanding its German services with the latest A350 XWB aircraft.
Deployed on the Doha-Munich route from 1 October, the new aircraft will complement the existing Boeing 787 Dreamliner service on one of the two double-daily flights to the German city.
Beginning 1st November 2015, the second daily flight to Munich will also be operated with the world’s newest wide-body aircraft, the A350 XWB.
Qatar Airways introduced its first and second commercial A350 XWB flights to the German market with flights to Frankfurt in January and March this year. The airline has also recently launched its third A350 aircraft to Singapore and will add its fourth and fifth aircraft with all three daily flights to Singapore scheduled to be operated with the A350 XWB by mid-August, 2015.
“The introduction of the A350 XWB aircraft to the Doha-Munich sector, which is an important and strategic route for Qatar Airways, will redefine the in-flight experience for our Munich-based passengers who travel to Doha and onwards to key destinations in the Middle East, Indian sub-continent, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas,” said Qatar Airways group chief executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker.
“Qatar Airways is delighted to be the first airline in Germany to provide this unique offering of flying exclusively the A350 XWB to two key cities, reiterating the airline’s steadfast commitment to the market.”
