The new direct flight, which commences on 7 May this year, will operate with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. One of the world’s newest aircraft, the Dreamliner will enable passengers to enjoy Qatar Airways’ renowned service, while experiencing the very latest in international air travel design and comfort. The route is currently operated by a Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft on its existing double-daily offering.
