Oz route speeds up

QATAR AIRWAYS has introduced a three times per week service linking Doha non-stop to Melbourne (Australia).  With a total journey time 21hrs 40mins from Heathrow, including a short stopover in Doha, it is claimed to be the shortest ever timing between London and Melbourne.  It is the airline's 85th destination and fourth new route of 2009.  The carrier plans to launch flights to Sydney next year.  From 1 January 2010 the route goes daily when a second three-class Boeing 777LR is delivered. www.qatarairways.com
