Edinburgh Airport sees Daily Doha Flights Double
Wednesday, 6 February 2019
Additional flights between Edinburgh and Doha will see double daily flights introduced at Scotland’s busiest airport by Qatar Airways.
The airline will introduce an additional afternoon flight in April to cater for high Easter demand, meaning a double daily service on Mondays throughout the month.
Three additional afternoon flights will also be introduced in the busy summer season, again bringing double daily services. The flights will be operated by an Airbus A350-900.
It’s the first time a long-haul carrier has operated double daily routes to the Middle East from Edinburgh Airport, demonstrating the award-winning airline’s confidence in the busy route.
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:
“We are delighted to confirm this additional capacity with Qatar, which signals how strong this route to Doha is performing thanks to the connections the airport has and the quality of the service our passengers receive.
“It’s testament to the strong relationship we have with the airline and their confidence in the product Edinburgh and Scotland has, that they added this frequency. It’s a fantastic opportunity for both airport and airline and we’ll be working to ensure it is one we seize upon.”
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Europe, Mr. Sylvain Bosc said:
“Qatar Airways is proud to be supporting the growth of our partnership with Edinburgh Airport. This great city has demonstrated itself to be an increasingly popular business and leisure destination for travellers from across the world. We are also seeing more passengers choosing Qatar Airways service from Edinburgh for the quality and comfort of their airport operation, and for the favourable connections that our global network of more than 160 destinations provides.”
