Friday, 07 Jul, 2022 0

Qatar Airways is doubling down on its Doha – Melbourne service.

The current once-daily schedule will become double-daily from 1 October with the support of the Victorian Government.

The airline and the Victorian Government signed a strategic agreement to increase connectivity to Melbourne to further boost tourism.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said: “Melbourne is the original home for Qatar Airways in Australia, and we are excited to enhance our operations.”

“The launch of the additional daily flight to Melbourne ahead of World Cup Qatar 2022 will allow more football fans to attend matches.”

The additional Melbourne schedule includes an onward leg to Canberra, resuming a once-daily connection between Doha and Canberra starting 1 October.

The added daily flight will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER.

The airline will operate a total of 40 weekly flights to Australia.

Including Canberra, the airline will operate to six destinations in Australia.

Qatar Airways recently announced a strategic partnership with Virgin Australia, which offers increased options across 35 domestic destinations, as well as Fiji and Queenstown, New Zealand.

Melbourne Airport Chief Executive Officer, Lorie Argus, said: “There is huge demand for international travel out of Melbourne, and these extra services couldn’t come at a better time with the soccer World Cup kicking off in November.”
