Qatar Airways launches daily flights to Adelaide
OCT 14, 2015: Qatar Airways unveiled the launch date of yet another exciting Australian destination, with daily non-stop scheduled flights between Doha and Adelaide due to commence on May 2, 2016. The airline has embarked on a major expansion in Australia, just recently announcing the launch of daily flights to Sydney from 1st of March next year.
Adelaide will also be the first destination in Australia to which Qatar Airways will fly its state-of-the-art A350 aircraft, for which it is the Global Launch Customer. Flying a long-haul service to Adelaide, which is a key business and leisure destination in southern Australia, will enable Qatar Airways to maximise the A350’s efficiency and performance and allow its Australia-bound passengers their first opportunity to try the world’s newest aircraft.
With the addition of Adelaide, Qatar Airways’ Australian capacity will rise to 28 flights a week, spread across the four key cities including Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said the new route demonstrated the airline’s expanding commitment to the Australian market.
“2016 is going to be yet another exciting year for Qatar Airways and we are very pleased that Australia will figure prominently in our expansion plans with the launch of flights to Sydney from March 1 and Adelaide from May 2 to further strengthen our operations in the country,” said Al Baker.
