Qatar Airways has revealed its first new destination in 2015. Starting from June 16, Qatar Airways will fly from Doha to the capital city and most populous city of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “Amsterdam has long been on our list of destinations to introduce to our network, and we are delighted to now be adding this dynamic European city to our route map.
The Doha – Amsterdam route will operate with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the latest next-generation aircraft in the airline’s fleet, offering 254 seats configured in two classes, with 22 fully-flat-bed seats in Business Class and 232 in Economy Class.
Flying non-stop, the total journey time between Doha and Amsterdam is six hours and 35 minutes.
The daily flights will be departing from Doha in the morning, arriving into Amsterdam in early afternoon, with return flights to Doha departing in the late afternoon. The schedule provides the convenience and flexibility for passengers to travel to the city for short leisure breaks or business meetings.
A highly popular tourist destination, the Netherlands counts 10 sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The city of Amsterdam contains two of them, the 17th-century canals of Amsterdam and the 19-20th century Defence Line of Amsterdam.
A port city and ever-growing destination for business, Amsterdam acts as a base for seven of the world's 500 largest companies, including Philips and ING.
