Qatar Airways UK and Ireland Country Manager, Mr. Richard Oliver, said: “Increasing services to and from Manchester will provide our passengers with even more convenient connection times and greater choice when connecting to onward flights through our state-of-the-art Doha hub, Hamad International Airport. Combined with our recent announcement of a new 8-times weekly service from Birmingham, this means that Qatar Airways will operate a total of 73 direct services to Doha a week from the UK providing even more access to 154 destinations worldwide.”
The additional services offer customers in the North West of England enhanced connectivity to Qatar Airways’ exciting new routes to Sydney and Adelaide, with just one quick and efficient connection in Doha.
