Qatar Airways will launch daily direct services from Doha to Sydney starting from March 1st, 2016.
This will be the third Australian city in the Qatar Airways network.
Currently, the Doha-based carrier operates daily non-stop flights to Melbourne and Perth with a total of 14 services each week.
Australia, with its stunning landscape of idyllic beaches and famous interior, along with its rich history and culture, draws millions of visitors each year.
The most populous city of Sydney, with its ocean-side location, sandy beaches, and iconic attractions like the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge is one of Australia’s and the world’s top business and tourist destinations, and Sydney will undoubtedly be a popular addition to Qatar Airways’ rapidly growing network.
Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “We are delighted to debut our daily Sydney flights next March.
“The expansion of our Australia services will undoubtedly boost and strengthen the trade and commercial links that exist between Qatar and Australia, setting the stage for even more robust partnership opportunities in the near future.
“We look forward to carrying more travellers to and from Australia across our extensive global network and providing them with another world-class experience both on board and on the ground at the state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport in Doha.”
The evening departure timings in both directions provide convenient travel times for passengers, and enhance connectivity to attractive business and leisure destinations across Qatar Airways’ ever-expanding global network.
The Doha-Sydney daily flights will be operated by the Boeing 777-300 aircraft which offers Qatar Airways’ award-winning in-flight hospitality and luxurious comfort across both cabins.
