Qatar Airways announced that it will bring forward the launch of its flights to Seattle (USA) to January 29th. Initially these flights were scheduled to start on March 15th.
The airline indicated that it will operate the route four times a week, with Boeing 777 aircraft, which have 42 seats in business class and 312 seats in economy class.
“Qatar Airways is committed to improving its connectivity with the American market. The early launch of flights to Seattle, our second new U.S. destination since the start of the pandemic, embodies this commitment. With flights to Washington State’s largest city, our U.S. network will grow to 11 gateways, surpassing the number of destinations we operated in the U.S. prior to COPID,19 said Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker.
Thus, Seattle joins existing U.S. destinations, including Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), Philadelphia (PHL), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington, D.C. (IAD).
The launch of flights to Seattle will increase Qatar Airways’ U.S. flight network to 66 weekly flights to 11 U.S. destinations, connecting hundreds of U.S. cities through strategic partnerships with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and JetBlue.
