Direct flights to Doha starting

The daily service is beginning a year ahead of it originally planned start date

Direct flights from Prague to Doha, the capital of Qatar, will begin Aug. 21, and operate daily. Originally the flights were announced for summer 2018, but were moved up due to intensive negotiations between Qatar Airways and the management of Václav Havel Airport Prague.

Qatar Airways will use an Airbus A 320 with a capacity of 144 seats, with 12 in business class and 132 in economy. The flight to Doha takes six hours. The route should serve up to 40,000 passengers per year in both directions. Prague will be the second direct destination from the Persian Gulf after Dubai, which is served by flydubai and Emirates.

The new direct service allows passengers to make connections to other destinations in the carrier's network, particularly in Asia and Australia.

The new route to Qatar in addition to allowing further connections to a variety of destinations will contribute to the development of tourism between the two countries, Václav Havel Airport Prague management stated.

Václav Havel Airport Prague should see 14 million passengers this year. The airport celebrated its 80th anniversary on April 5, 2017. It was renamed from Prague Ruzyně Airport to Václav Havel International Airport in 2012, on what would have been Havel's 76th birthday.
