Qatar expansion

By aniljak | Jun 16, 2017, 07:24 PM
In interview  with Al Jazeera news this week, Qatar's  CEO  stated that ban on Qatar's  flights to middle east mean t he would be advancing plans ti serve 24 new destinations. Did suggest may start flights to more Australian  Destinations. My thinking is you may se more flights to Canberra  plus services  to Christchurch  and possibly Wellington.  Any thoughts on possible routes?

Yes, definitely. Hope they get more rights soon. Though I do know Akbar was in talks with the Gold Coast to launch flights several years back - so that's a possible alternative.

He also mentioned Darwin at an event once, but everyone laughed, so he may have been joking. Though I've always thought Darwin would be the most geographically convenient gateway to Australia. If they invested in aviation infrastructure, Darwin would be a much better launching point for ULH flights to Europe than Perth is.
