“It is also our pleasure to promote Ireland as a tourism destination to our loyal passengers who have already shown their appetite for Dublin.”

Chief executive, Dublin Airport, Kevin Toland also spoke at the conference: “We want to express our warmest welcome to Qatar Airways and its new daily route between Dublin and Doha. We welcome tourists from Doha and beyond to enjoy Ireland’s traditions and lively culture.

“There are many great reasons to take a break in Dublin which is a wonderful, vibrant and exciting city. Visitors can explore the city’s exceptional museums, take a cycle around town on the city bikes, or take a walk on cobbled roads. A stunning countryside of mountains, lakes and quaint villages are a short trip away from Dublin for everyone to enjoy.”

Qatar Airways’ new service to Dublin has already been deemed successful, flying at almost full capacity in the last few weeks since its launch. The airline has also secured key sponsorships at prominent events around the city, including the Dublin Horse Show and the Darley Irish Oaks Day at the Curragh Racetrack.
