As of December 17, 2018, Qatar Airways will be offering an additional weekly flight to Montreal, Canada, boosting the route to four-times-weekly services.
The extra flight will be operated by a Boeing 777 aircraft in a two-class configuration, with 24 seats in business class and 388 seats in economy class. Those wishing to travel from Doha to Montreal can opt for services on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays or Sundays.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker enthused on the development: “We are very pleased to introduce this extra weekly service on one of our most popular routes for our long-haul Canadian passengers. Qatar Airways has one of the shortest connection times for Canadian travellers to the Far East – the Montreal to Doha journey is just 12 hours and 20 minutes – with one of the lowest connection times in the industry. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Canadian travellers for their continued support, and for choosing to fly with a world-class airline that puts service excellence at its core.”
Al Baker explained that the extra flight comes just in time for the peak winter holiday season, thus offering travellers to and from Montreal added flexibility and convenience when booking their holidays.
Looking ahead, the Qatari carrier has plans in place to add exciting new destinations to its portfolio over the coming months. These include: Mombasa, Kenya; Gothenburg, Sweden and Da Nang, Vietnam.
