Qatar Airways deployed a B787 on the Doha–Zurich route today will deploy another on its Perth-Doha services from February 1, making it the first carrier to operate the aircraft on routes to and from Australia.
The airline has already started operating the B787 on its weekly services to Munich and Zurich routes, followed by one of its double daily Frankfurt services on February 1, that day Qatar will also increase its frequencies on the Munich and Zurich routes to daily.
Qatar has taken delivery of four B787s since November but was forced to ground one aircraft in December because of electrical problems. Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: “As an airline we are always striving to enhance the passenger experience in the skies by offering improved connectivity with convenient scheduling and an all-round new inflight product which makes a significant impact on travel decisions. “In addition to introducing new routes, we are also relentlessly focused on improving the passenger experience when travelling with Qatar Airways. This is why there is so much hype around our Boeing 787 – it offers the travelling public a second-to-none flying experience straight through from comfort, to entertainment to gastronomy.” Source: routesnews, Oliver Clark
