New aircraft allows Qatar Airways to launch extra flights to Melbourne

The airline has welcomed two Boeing 777-200 long-range aircraft and two Airbus A320s to its fleet

Qatar Airways will increase its number of flights to Melbourne from Doha after it took delivery of four new aircraft in December.

The airline has welcomed two Boeing 777-200 long-range aircraft and two Airbus A320s to its fleet, which has now increased to 76 aeroplanes.

While one 777-200 will be used on the Doha to Melbourne route, which increased to a daily service on January 1st, the other Boeing aircraft will be used on Qatar Airways’ flights to the far east.

Akbar Al Baker, the carrier’s chief executive officer, said the commitment to increase its fleet size will allow passengers to benefit from the latest "in-flight features".

"Today’s consumer is becoming more demanding and we at Qatar Airways recognise the need to remain at the forefront of the aviation industry by flying modern aircraft and offer the best levels of comfort and inflight amenities," he commented.

The airline recently announced its intention to launch new flights to Copenhagen and Barcelona at the end of March.
