Qatar Airways has upgraded its capacity to the Scottish capital, Edinburgh to the Airbus A350-900, becoming the first and only airline to fly the A350 to Scotland.
The daily service between Doha and Edinburgh was previously operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The upgrade became necessary due to increasing demand from passengers.
The new capacity to Edinburgh will provide even more flexibility and convenience to passengers travelling to the city as well as offer enhanced connectivity for passengers flying from the United Kingdom to Qatar Airways’ network of more than 150 destinations.
Qatar Airways has been connecting the people of Scotland via Edinburgh to destinations around the world since 2014, with one seamless connection in Doha.
Qatar Airways operates 95 weekly flights to the United Kingdom including 6 daily flights to London Heathrow, 16 weekly flights to London Gatwick and Manchester, daily flights to Cardiff and Edinburgh and 7 weekly flights to Birmingham.
In Qatar Airways configuration, the Airbus A350-900 aircraft features a total of 283 seats, with 36 Business class seats and 247 in Economy Class.
