New direct routes are an important contributing factor, as improved market connectivity is crucial for Sweden’s tourism industry, the business community, and for attracting investment and know-how to the region. We are very pleased that we at Swedavia, together with our regional partners, have been able to present to Qatar Airways the large market potential in the West of Sweden, resulting in the new direct route between Gothenburg and Doha. It is with great pleasure that we welcome this top-of-the-line global airline to Göteborg Landvetter Airport.

At the aircraft arrival ceremony, Qatar Airways was presented with “the Key to the City of Gothenburg” award, in recognition of the tremendous benefit, the direct service will bring to West Swedish companies by providing increased connectivity to Africa and Asia. The award was presented to Qatar Airways by Mr. Henrik Einarsson, Director of Business Establishment and Investment, Business Region Göteborg AB.
