Qatar Airways sees strong demand for Birmingham service one year on

Posted 29 March 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways is reporting strong demand from business and leisure travellers and cargo shippers from the Midlands as it celebrates its first anniversary of flights from Birmingham Airport to Doha.

Qatar Airways commenced flights from Birmingham to Doha on 30th March 2016, offering a daily non-stop service to Doha where passengers can seamlessly transfer at its state-of-the-art hub, Hamad International Airport, to flights to over 150 destinations in regions including Asia, Australasia, Africa and the Middle East. 

Morena Bronzetti, Qatar Airways’ country manager UK & Ireland, said: “Just a year on from the start of our service from Birmingham, levels of both passenger and cargo demand are strong and exceeding our expectations. 

“It’s clear that business and leisure travellers and cargo shippers from the Midlands have recognised the benefits of being able to travel from their local airport to the huge choice of destinations we serve across the globe.” 

To celebrate the anniversary, Qatar Airways is offering passengers flying out of Birmingham Airport on Thursday the chance to win prizes including two free flights for their next holiday and a selection of luxury gifts. 

The airport is hosting a treasure hunt for passengers booked on the afternoon flight to Doha. Passengers who find special anniversary paper aeroplanes hidden in the airport terminal can claim their prizes before boarding the flight. 

David Winstanley, chief operating officer, Birmingham Airport, said: “We are delighted to celebrate this anniversary with Qatar Airways. The airline gives passengers from our region a great product and an extensive route network in the Gulf and beyond.”
