Qatar Airways launches San Francisco, key missing part of US network
Doha – San Francisco
Qatar Airways began Doha – San Francisco on 15 December. Operating four-weekly, its 13,014-kilometre route uses A350-900s.
Of course, its schedule is – like its other North American routes – effectively the same to drive connectivity.
While Doha P2P demand is minimal (7,000 round-trip in 2019), it can expect wide-reaching demand over its Qatar hub.
Given similar timings from Los Angeles, applying Qatar Airways’ top-25 country markets from LAX to San Francisco shows total demand of over 1.5 million last year. Of course, India was by far the top, followed by South Africa, Pakistan, Iran, Jordan, Nepal, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Sri Lanka.
Qatar Airways’ 14th destination in North America, Seattle, is coming on 15 March. We covered this in detail here.
