Venice gains Qatar

Qatar Airways is to fly to Venice on a daily basis from 15 June.  It is the airline’s third Italian destination after Milan and Rome to where the airline also operates seven days per week.  At Venice International Airport passengers are able to arrive by water from the heart of the historic city.

Venice becomes the Doha-based airline’s 26th European destination in a remarkable period of growth which has seen seven new routes introduced on the Continent over the past 12 months.  Qatar Airways has launched flights to Ankara, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Nice, Bucharest, Budapest, Brussels – the latter three in January alone – taking its European portfolio to 24 cities.  From 6 March, scheduled services begin to the German automobile manufacturing city of Stuttgart.

The new route, non-stop from Qatar Airways’ Doha hub, will be operated with the airline’s newest Airbus A320 aircraft, featuring seat-back TV screens offering a choice of over 700 interactive audio and video entertainment programming.  The aircraft has 12 seats in Business Class and 132 in Economy.

Passengers travelling from Venice can connect to a range of business and leisure destinations served by Qatar Airways across the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, via Doha. www.qatarairways.com
