Qatar Airways celebrates anniversary of flights to Gothenburg

Doha: Qatar Airways celebrated its first anniversary of launching direct flights from Doha to Gothenburg, marking the airline’s second gateway into Sweden after the capital, Stockholm.

Qatar Airways’ first flight to Gothenburg arrived on December 12 last year, and since that date, the national carrier has been operating a daily trip to the city on a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which includes 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Class. Tourist.

As one of the world’s leading international air cargo carriers, Qatar Airways Cargo already has a large presence in the Nordics region, operating belly-hold flights to and from Helsinki, Oslo, Copenhagen, and Stockholm, along with four weekly freighters from Oslo.

The five weekly wide-body belly-hold flights to and from Gothenburg will increase the overall tonnage to 1000 tonnes per week from the Nordic region. Direct flights from Gothenburg will greatly benefit the automotive, pharma, high tech, and general industries in Sweden, and offer efficient connections to the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand via the carrier’s state-of-the-art hub in Doha.

Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city, offers a rich array of activities for visitors to enjoy, from taking a boat cruise along one of the port city’s many canals to visiting the nearby Bohuslan islands, a vast archipelago featuring pine forests framing fjord-like lakes and inlets.

To sample Gothenburg’s seafood specialties, head to Feskekorka, the city’s famed fish market, which showcases a variety of shrimp, oysters, mussels, crawfish, and lobster. Or wander the streets of the Haga neighborhood, where you’ll find well-preserved quaint wooden houses, a variety of boutiques, galleries, and dozens of charming cafés and restaurants.

Passengers traveling to Sweden in Business Class can look forward to relaxing in one of the most comfortable, fully-lie flatbeds as well as enjoy the five-star food and beverage service, which is served ‘dine-on-demand.’ Passengers can also take advantage of the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system, Oryx One, offering up to 4,000 entertainment options.
