Jun 25, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Qatar Airways is expanding its Boeing 787-8 services to Europe with the new aircraft being deployed on three Scandinavian routes.
The Doha-based carrier will launch Dreamliner flights to the Swedish capital Stockholm on 1 August, followed a month later to both Copenhagen and Oslo - capital cities of Denmark and Norway, respectively, effective 1 September 2013.
Qatar Airways operates daily flights to each of the three Scandinavian capitals from its hub, capital of the State of Qatar, with a total weekly capacity of 21 services.
Selected flights to each of the three cities will be served by Qatar Airways' Dreamliners.
"Our Scandinavian routes have grown in stature and importance since we began flying to the region in 2007. I am delighted that our Dreamliners will be introduced to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo very soon providing our passengers with an unparalleled level of service and comfort to and from Scandinavia," said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. "I have always said the Dreamliner is a state-of-the-art aircraft designed to change the passenger travel experience because of the space, comfort, interior look and feel and, from an operational point of view, a highly fuel-efficient jet aircraft."
Qatar Airways has 254 custom-made seats across its 787 Business and Economy Class cabins with specially designed interiors.
Business Class is configured 1-2-1 with 22 seats, while Economy has a 232 seating capacity in a 3-3-3 layout.
The airline's 787s feature wireless facilities for passengers to remain in touch with friends and colleagues on the ground through the internet and SMS mobile texting across both Business and Economy cabins.
