Qatar Airways launches Gatwick Airport connection
Qatar Airways' inaugural flight from Doha touched down today at London Gatwick Airport, where it was welcomed with a celebratory water salute.
The new double daily service, operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, makes London Gatwick the award-winning airline's sixth gateway into the United Kingdom and second gateway to London.
The new route will provide even more flexibility and convenience to passengers travelling to London and will offer enhanced connectivity for passengers flying from the United Kingdom to Qatar Airways' extensive global route network of more than 150 destinations. Over the summer period, flights to London Gatwick will further increase to 16 services per week on the popular route.
