Qatar Airways Touches Down In Norway

Qatar Airways has ventured further into Northern Europe with the launch of scheduled flights to Norway yesterday.

Oslo becomes Qatar Airways’ third Scandinavian gateway after Stockholm and Copenhagen. The airline's new five-times-a-week service to Oslo comes less than a month after it added Sofia as another point in its European network.

Oslo became destination number 107 in the airline’s global route map and the twenty-seventh city served by Qatar Airways in Europe, a continent now representing 25 percent of the airline’s international reach.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways has reached yet another key milestone in Europe, with Oslo becoming our seventh European destination launched so far this year.”

“We now operate 19 flights a week across three Scandinavian cities making Qatar Airways the biggest Gulf carrier in the Nordic market."

Oslo Airport Chief of Information Jo Kobro said: “Qatar Airways’ new route from Oslo to Doha offers a comfortable and efficient link to the Gulf region and beyond. This new service will be much welcomed by business and leisure passengers travelling to a wide choice of Qatar Airways’ onward destinations in the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. And the new service re-enforces Oslo Airport’s position as one of the leading airports in Scandinavia.”

The Oslo – Doha route is served with a wide body Airbus A330 featuring 24 seats in Business Class and up to 236 seats in Economy.
