Qatar Airways’ inaugural flight from Doha to Düsseldorf in Germany landed at Düsseldorf International Airport on Tuesday, 15th November, marking the launch of the airline’s latest German destination. The flight was welcomed with a water canon salute upon arrival.
Operated by a Boeing 787 aircraft, flight QR085 was welcomed with an opening ceremony attended by Qatar Airways VP Sales, Europe, Mr. Eric Odone and Düsseldorf International Airport’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Thomas Schnalke.
Qatar Airways currently offers services to Munich, Frankfurt and Berlin, making Düsseldorf its fourth destination in Germany. In July 2022, the award-winning airline increased its flight frequency from Frankfurt to three times a day. The move into Düsseldorf further demonstrates Qatar Airways’ commitment to the German market.
The new direct services to Düsseldorf will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an environmentally advanced aircraft, which consumes 20 per cent less fuel and emits 20 per cent less carbon dioxide than other similar aircrafts.
As well as enjoying the award-winning in-flight service and catering on-board, passengers can also look forward to Oryx One, Qatar Airways' in-flight entertainment programme, which offers a wide selection of the latest blockbuster movies, series, and music for in-flight entertainment.
Qatar Airways passengers from Düsseldorf can benefit from generous baggage allowances, which are designed to offer passengers flexibility and convenience when traveling aboard Qatar Airways. More information is available at https://www.qatarairways.com/en-qa/baggage/allowance.html
