Malta is latest gateway in Qatar airline’s rapidly-expanding European network


Qatar Airways will launch direct services from Malta to Doha as the latest gateway in airline’s rapidly-expanding European network on Tuesday 4 June 2019.
The new route will be served by an A320 aircraft, with daily services in summer, leading to a four-times-weekly service in Winter, and will bring even greater connectivity to Malta through Qatar Airways’ global network of more than 160 destinations.
The airline has also launched a new website for the Maltese market – HYPERLINK “http://www.qatarairways.mt” www.qatarairways.mt – enabling customers to book flights online, and boasts a search function allowing them to set filters to find their ideal flight. Customers can also find airfares, as well as departure and arrival date combinations in a fast and convenient way. 
Qatar Airways Country Manager for Italy and Malta, Mr. Mate Hoffmann, said: “We are very much looking forward to the launch of the direct services from Malta, one of Europe’s architectural gems and a key new addition to our European network. The new route will provide both business and leisure passengers travelling from Malta access to Qatar Airways’ extensive global route network.”
The new Malta service opens up a world of new connectivity options for Qatar Airways’ customers to destinations across Africa, Asia and Australia, such as Capetown, Hong Kong, Bali, Maldives, Bangkok, Sydney and many more.
Passengers flying from Malta will also enjoy a quick and convenient transfer at the airline’s home and hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha. Offering more than 100 retail and dining options and unique services such as a swimming pool, hotel and spa, designed exclusively for those in transit, HIA aims to further enhance passengers’ overall travel experience.
The airline’s award-winning Business Class offers travelers the chance to relax in one of the most comfortable, fully-lie-flat beds, as well as enjoy the five-star food and beverage service served ‘dine-on-demand’. In addition to this, all passengers can take advantage of the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system, Oryx One, offering over 4,000 entertainment options.

Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Business Class’ by the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Business Class Seat’, ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’.
