Qatar Airways will increase flight frequency between Doha and Melbourne, Australia with a second daily flights from 1 October, 2022, upping the service from the current once-daily to double-daily flights.
The added daily schedule will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER, featuring its award-winning QSuite Business Class.
The airline will operate a total of 40 weekly flights to Australia with this network enhancement. The additional Melbourne schedule includes an onward leg to Canberra, officially resuming a once-daily connection between Doha and Canberra starting 1 October.
With the newest addition, the airline will operate to 6 destinations in Australia including Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Sydney. This will exceed Qatar Airways’ pre-pandemic footprint of five gateways in Australia, following the addition of Brisbane services started early 2020 during the global pandemic.
Qatar Airways recently announced its strategic partnership with Virgin Australia, which will offer increased travel options and benefits across 35 destinations in its extensive domestic network, as well as to its recently relaunched short-haul international markets, including Fiji and Queenstown, New Zealand.
Qatar Airways currently flies to more than 150 destinations worldwide, connecting through its Doha hub, Hamad International Airport.
