The Doha-based airline currently operates 16 flights per week between the two cities – double daily on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, with triple daily flights already operating on Mondays and Saturdays.

From 18 September Qatar Airways will add a third daily flight on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 22 May 2019, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays will gain the additional frequency.

Qatar Airways Acting Senior Vice President Europe, Ishfaq Jalal said, “Qatar Airways enjoys a special relationship with Manchester as demonstrated by the ever-increasing amount of tourist and business traffic passing between our countries and through Doha to our global network. 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.”
