Qatar Airways will progressively increase services from the UK after today resuming flights from Gatwick.
The carrier will operate three weekly 787 Dreamliner services from Gatwick to Doha, with four daily flights from Heathrow operating during December along with three weekly flights from Manchester and Edinburgh.
Qatar Airways UK and Ireland Country Manager, Gary Kershaw, said: “We are delighted to resume our flights to London Gatwick, further cementing our position as the leading international carrier providing connectivity to the UK.
“The resumption of London Gatwick services is a significant indicator of the resilience of the UK travel market, and we look forward to resuming more of our UK destinations to support the recovery of tourism and trade in the region.”
Gatwick Head of Airline Relations, Stephen King, said: “We are delighted to welcome Qatar Airways back to Gatwick after the second national lockdown.
“It’s great for passengers that Gatwick and Qatar Airways can offer the opportunity to fly to Doha – and onwards to destinations across Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East – at this time of year, when people are looking to reunite with family and friends after what has been an incredibly challenging period.”
