Qatar Airways will launch flights to Atlanta, the airline’s 10th destination in the United States, on 1 June.
The route between Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL) and Hamad International Airport (HIA) will be operated daily non-stop with a Boeing 777, with the exception of the first flight – which will be deployed with an Airbus A380 super-jumbo for one day only, on 1 June.
“With our expanding presence in the United States, we look forward to welcoming new passengers from Atlanta and beyond to experience our product and the distinct hospitality of Qatar Airways,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker.
“Our network, much like our on-board product, is optimised for long journeys, offering customers fast and seamless transfers at our home airport, or the option to extend your time in Doha to experience the world’s finest airport. We want to go places together with our customers, to be part of their journey and contribute to a memorable experience.”
Qatar Airways’ third new destination to the United States this year, Atlanta follows the start of services to Los Angeles (1 January) and Boston (16 March).
