Qatar is set to fly to JFK
Qatar Airways has announced it will be launching a daily service to New York.
Effective at the end of October, the Doha-based airline will operate 17-hour non-stop flights to JFK Airport on its 777-300 extended range aircraft.
“As we have introduced more aircraft into our fleet, we have been able to increase frequency on the New York route from four-flights-a-week to six services in just 12 months,” said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways’ CEO.
“We are now preparing to go daily with our brand new Boeing 777s featuring lie-flat Business Class seats from October and offer unprecedented levels of space and comfort, which will truly give us an edge over our competitors in the Middle East and around the world,” he added.
Currently, the carrier runs six flights a week to New York’s Newark Liberty International Airport.
