Birmingham announced by Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways has officially announced that it will be launching new nonstop services to Birmingham, UK effective 30MAR16 as the carrier looks to elevate its presence in all the major UK market segments. BHX was the vital missing link for it which is being largely welcomed by passengers heading to Amritsar, Dhaka, Colombo and North Pakistan in particular. 

QR will operate the flight using a split schedule 8 times per week with all services flown using the 254 seater Boeing 787-800. The flight schedule is as follows:

Days: 1/3/5/6

QR 035 Dep DOH 0125 Arr BHX 0645
QR 036 Dep BHX 0915 Arr DOH 1805

Days: 2/4/6/7 

QR 033 Dep DOH 0730 Arr BHX 1250
QR 034 Dep BHX 1500 Arr DOH 2350

The above mentioned schedule connects very well via DOH in both directions to MEL/SYD/Indian Subcontinent/GCC/KSA/SE Asia and East Africa.
