Qatar to DFW

Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) is the latest destination for Qatar Airways from Doha (DOH).  The new route increases Qatar’s extensive global network to seven gateways within the United States and 144 destinations worldwide.

The new route flies daily, departing from DOH at 08:10 and arriving into DFW at 15:35 the same day (all times local).  The overnight service to DOH departs DFW at 20:00 arriving DOH 18:20 the following day.  The route is operated with a Boeing 777-200LR with 217 Economy Class seats and 42 Business Class.  Flight time is around 15hrs.

The airline says that along with Houston, DFW will serve as a crucial junction between Qatar Airways’ global network, via Doha, and other key destinations across the Southwestern USA, including Austin, San Antonio and Oklahoma City.

“We are particularly pleased to begin serving the home city of our oneworld alliance partner American Airlines said Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways.  “Together, we can provide North Texas and the surrounding region with unparalleled service and better connections to Doha and around the world.”

Dallas/Fort Worth is a world centre for major American corporations,
 including AT&T and Texas Instruments.  The region is also home to major oil and gas companies, including Exxon Mobil.  www.qatarairways.com
