Qatar Airways' daily double

Manchester expansion boosts eastern route options

Qatar Airways' daily double

QATAR Airways has added a second daily flight on the Manchester to Doha route.

Introducing double daily services gives passengers greater choice to travel onto a wider range of flights operated by Qatar Airways across the Middle East, Africa, South Asia, Far East and Australia via the airline’s operational hub.

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.

With a large ethnic population from South Asia living in and around Manchester, and Qatar Airways having an extensive network of flights from Doha to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, the additional flights will enhance travel options to and from the region.

Furthermore, additional capacity introduced to popular destinations such as Bangkok and Singapore will offer greater travel flexibility to and from Manchester.

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,” he said.

“As one of the UK’s largest metropolitan areas, Manchester is a key region for us, with a large catchment area stretching up to Scotland and down to the Midlands. With this in mind, we hope that our additional flight capacity will help to provide convenient routes to the Middle East and beyond from both a leisure and business perspective.”

Qatar Airways will continue to operate a two-class wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft on the double daily Manchester flights with up to 30 seats in a 2–2–2 configuration in Business Class and up to 275 seating capacity in a 2–4–2 Economy cabin layout.

The aircraft offers seatback TV screens providing passengers in both classes with the next generation interactive onboard entertainment system featuring a choice of more than 900 audio and video on demand options.
