It is great for the Car Hire Edinburgh Airport branch to be made aware of another new destination added to the airport.
Another destination will soon be available from Edinburgh Airport, flying to Qatar from 28th May. Qatar Airlines will introduce the non-stop, five days a week service between Edinburgh and Doha. Qatar Airlines chief executive Akbar Al Baker said, “Not only will this benefit the local market in Scotland, but also attract a significant amount of business and trade links for those wishing to travel to Edinburgh from all corners of the world.”
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft will fly all year round, providing connections to 136 different destinations. It will take less than seven hours and be the first Dreamliner to operate from Scotland. Mr Al Baker added, “The start of services from Edinburgh to Doha not only offers travellers from the Scottish capital access to the Middle East in under seven hours, but also a quicker journey time to other popular destinations in Asia, India and Australasia.”
The service will operate Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays once up and running. Qatar Airlines already flies to London and Manchester in the UK.
