The airline’s Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker held a press conference at the St. Regis Hotel in Buckhead. Mr. Akbar Al Baker was joined by Qatar Airways Vice President of the Americas, Mr. Gunter Saurwein and Country Manager of the USA, Ms. Lisa Markovic.

Mr. Al Baker announced that the route between Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL) and Hamad International Airport (HIA) will be operated daily non-stop with a Boeing 777, with the exception of the first flight – which will be deployed with an Airbus A380 super-jumbo for one day only, on 1 June.

Qatar Airways’ third new destination to the United States this year, Atlanta follows the start of services to Los Angeles (1 January) and Boston (16 March).

“We know passengers want more than just travel; they want an in-flight experience that provides comfort, from the design of the seat to the quality of the cuisine, to the range of entertainment options available. These elements matter more now than ever before, as we witness the increasing trend of long haul and ultra-long haul travel. Our network, much like our on-board product, is optimised for long journeys, offering customers fast and seamless transfers at our home airport, or the option to extend your time in Doha to experience the world’s finest airport. We want to go places together with our customers, to be part of their journey and contribute to a memorable experience,” said Mr. Al Baker.
