Qatar Airways takes off from Doha to Seattle
Doha to Seattle
Qatar Airways began Doha to Seattle on 29 January.
Initially operating four-weekly using B777-300ERs, the 11,927-kilometre service is scheduled to increase to daily from the end of June. A350-900s are due to replace B777s from the start of March.
This route comes just over a month after the carrier began San Francisco.
This coming summer, Qatar Airways will serve 13 North American destinations on a passenger basis, with Atlanta due to come back online on 1 June.
Speaking of the launch of Seattle, Peter Steinbrueck, Seattle Port Commissioner, said: “This is truly, truly an exciting day for our airport, for our region, and for global businesses and international travel.
“We are terrifically excited. Today’s launch of a new service with Qatar Airways signals the return of robust air travel and better days ahead.”
