The history of Perth is intertwined with many of the city’s landmarks, making it one of Australia’s most culturally diverse cities. By enhancing connections to numerous locations on its global network, Qatar Airways’ commitment to the Australian community is extended by the increased capacity.
His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways, stated: “We want to demonstrate our commitment to Australia by carrying on the work we did to keep Australians connected during the pandemic. It is crucial that visitors from Australia feel at home whether they are transiting through or staying in Doha. All flights to and from Perth will be scheduled in accordance with the timings of football games during the eagerly awaited FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 to ensure that all fans can enjoy the season’s biggest event.
Qatar Airways maintained its Australian services throughout the pandemic. Over 330,000 passengers were brought into and out of Australia by Qatar Airways between March 2020 and December 2021 on both commercial flights and special chartered services.
Also, Doha has established itself as a major hub for Australian tourists heading to the Middle East and Europe, with connections to cities like London, Manchester, Dublin, and Paris proving to be very popular, via Hamad International Airport, which was named the World’s Best Airport by Skytrax World Airport Awards 2022 for the second consecutive year.
