We remain committed to providing the levels of service quality and in-flight experience that has increased the demand for our airline.”

The Manchester flights will be operated using a mix of 254-seat Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 283-seat Airbus A350 aircraft.

Manchester Airport Aviation Director Julian Carr, said, “We’re delighted to see Qatar Airways continue to grow at Manchester Airport. They’re a hugely popular airline with the 22 million people in our catchment area. Since they started 15 years ago they’ve gone from four flights a week to the three a day they will operate from next May.”
