To celebrate the launch of Qatar Airways’ new direct service to Gothenburg, Sweden, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, hosted a press conference today at the Clarion Post Hotel in Gothenburg.
Swedavia President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Jonas Abrahamsson, said: “Sweden is Scandinavia’s largest economy and one of Europe’s strongest. New direct routes are an important contributing factor, as improved market connectivity is crucial for Sweden´s tourism, businesses, ability to attract investments and exchange of knowledge.
“We are very pleased to welcome Qatar Airways to Gothenburg, its second gateway into Sweden. We are also delighted that in five years, Qatar Airways has doubled traffic on the direct route between Doha and Stockholm, significantly increasing connectivity between Sweden and the rest of the world.”
Qatar Airways’ five weekly flights to Gothenburg are served with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.
Passengers travelling to Sweden in Business Class can look forward to relaxing in one of the most comfortable, fully-lie flat beds as well as enjoy its five-star food and beverage service, which is served ‘dine-on-demand’, enabling passengers to order what they like, when they like.
