Qatar Airways to resume flights to London Gatwick

Qatar Airways has recently announced that it will resume flights to London Gatwick Airport from June 5, 2022.

The airline will operate a daily service from Gatwick to Doha using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class. An environmentally advanced aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner consumes 20 per cent less fuel and its carbon dioxide emissions are 20 per cent lower than other similar aircraft.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: ‘Our commitment to the UK market has been unwavering and we operated continuously and reliably throughout the pandemic, so I am pleased we can resume our popular service to London Gatwick. We offer excellent connectivity to and from the UK, providing travellers with more choice and convenience.

‘This year is very special for us, not least as it is the 25th anniversary of the start of our flights to London Heathrow in March 1997.’

With the addition of daily flights to London Gatwick, passengers can now enjoy connectivity to almost 150 destinations across the airline’s extensive global network via Hamad International Airport, connecting with popular destinations across the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia.

The resumption of the London Gatwick service comes after the recently launched flights to Doha from Gatwick by Qatar Airways’ Joint Business partner British Airways, meaning the airlines can now jointly offer more options between London and Doha and beyond.

In addition, UK customers will now have access to four gateways including five-times daily services from London Heathrow, 18-times weekly from Manchester and four-times weekly from Edinburgh, increasing to daily from June 2.
