Qatar Airways is to operate Boeing 787 services on three Scandinavian routes.

The carrier will deploy the type on flights from its Doha hub to Stockholm from August 1 and to Copenhagen and Oslo from 1 September. Each route is operated daily.

A sixth Dreamliner was delivered to Qatar Airways during the Paris air show, and the airline has 54 more on order. The five 787s it currently operates are used for flights from the Qatari capital to Dubai, Frankfurt, London Heathrow, Munich and Zurich.

Norwegian, meanwhile, is set to receive its first 787 later this month, and will between 4 July and 4 August use the aircraft to serve Alicante, Barcelona, London, Malaga and Nice from Oslo. The type will later be deployed on Norwegian's long-haul flights to New York and Bangkok.
