Qatar Airways has added a second daily, non-stop service between Hamad International Airport (DOH), Doha and John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), New York City.
The new service will be operated by the acclaimed Airbus A350 and a new morning departure time from JFK, allowing passengers to arrive in Doha the morning of the following day.
The new flight represents the tenth Qatar Airways route between Doha and the United States. The airline has been operating in the United States for nine years and recently added daily, non-stop service to Boston on 16 March, and will commence service to Atlanta, on 1 June.
“This new route is evidence of our rapid growth in the United States,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.
“By offering a second flight from JFK, we provide our leisure and business travellers with convenient connections, via Doha, to top destinations in Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and the Far East."
The second daily flight departs JFK from Terminal 7 at 11:15 hrs and arrives at Hamad International Airport at 06:45 hrs local time (Qatar).
The return flight to New York City arrives in JFK’s Terminal 7 at 09:15 hrs, providing convenient access to the city and connecting flights across the United States.
