Qatar Airways builds presence in northern England

Guest Writer

Qatar Airways is to double its flights to Manchester in north England, effective from the 1st of June. Designed to capitalise on the increasing number of connections through Doha, the twice-daily flights are a mix of morning departures to Manchester, with the return sectors in the morning or afternoon. Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said the Manchester route had been performing exceptionally well, prompting the decision to increase capacity.”Manchester has long proved to be one of our successful routes so it was only a matter of time before we could deploy additional capacity into this market,” said Al Baker.”I am pleased to say that from June 1, the extra flights will be introduced offering passengers from northern England and, indeed, the Midlands the opportunity to fly to Qatar and beyond. The second daily service will allow Qatar Airways to grow the passenger market for both inbound and outbound travel to Manchester, as well as build up our cargo freighter capacity on the route.”
