Doha-based Qatar Airways will launch nonstop flights between Doha and Perth on July 3. Perth will be the airline’s second Australian destination after Melbourne, which it launched in December 2009. The airline will operate Boeing 777-200LR aircraft (pictured above) on the route.
For passengers departing from Perth, the route will mean a one-stop connection to a number of destinations, including popular European cities like Berlin, Stockholm, London, Paris, and Bucharest.
The thrice-weekly flights will depart Doha at 01:05, arriving in Perth at 17:10. On the return, they will leave Perth at 23:00, arriving in Doha at 05:20 the following day. The route will be upgraded to a daily service from December 1.
