Qatar Airways brings third Airbus A350 to the United States by announcing its second daily, non-stop flight to New York City. The new route features a new morning departure time from JFK, allowing passengers to arrive in Doha the morning of the following day.
The new flight represents the tenth Qatar Airways route between Doha and the United States. The airline, named “2015 Airline of the Year” (Skytrax), has now been operating in the United States for nine years and recently added daily, non-stop service to Boston (BOS) on 16 March, and will commence service to Atlanta (ATL), on 1 June.
“This new route is evidence of our rapid growth in the United States,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker. “By offering a second flight from JFK, we provide our leisure and business travelers with convenient connections, via Doha, to top destinations in Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and the Far East. In particular, business travel between New York City and Singapore on Qatar Airways is now one of our most popular routes, offering business travelers a best-in-class experience featuring the Airbus 350 – the most technologically advanced aircraft in commercial aviation flying today – on every leg of the journey.”
The A350 features an innovative system for the reduction of jet lag. By using a high precision air management system to reduce cabin pressure and optimize humidity, along with a dynamic LED lighting system to manage passenger melatonin levels, the A350 combats the effects of international travel and leaves passengers feeling more refreshed upon arrival.
The second daily flight departs JFK from Terminal 7 at 11:15 hrs and arrives at Hamad International Airport at 06:45 hrs local time (Qatar).
The new flight to New York City arrives in JFK’s Terminal 7 at 09:15 hrs, providing convenient access to the city and connecting flights across the United States. Terminal 7 is also home to other oneworld members, including British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Iberia, and Qantas. Qatar Airways will continue to operate its evening route, scheduled to depart New York at 23:00 hrs, from Terminal 8, providing an alternative and convenience when visiting Doha or connecting with outbound flights to the airline’s global network of more than150 destinations around the world.
