Qatar Airways Reveals Amsterdam as First New Destination for 2015

Qatar Airways has revealed its first new destination in 2015 with the launch of the Amsterdam route, starting June 16, the carrier announced Monday via a press release.
“Amsterdam has long been on our list of destinations to introduce to our network, and we are delighted to now be adding this dynamic European city to our route map,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said.
“Qatar Airways looks forward to bringing our five-star service to The Netherlands, and providing travelers with an extensive list of destinations across the Middle East, Africa and the Far East that are easily accessible with a minimal connection time in Doha.” The Qatari carrier said the new route will operate with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, one of the latest next-generation aircraft in the airline’s fleet, offering 254 seats configured in two classes, with 232 in economy class and 22 fully-flat-bed seats in business class. The total journey time of the non-stop flight is estimated to be six hours and 35 minutes.
The daily flights will be departing from Doha in the morning, arriving into Amsterdam in early afternoon, with return flights to Doha departing in the late afternoon, the airline said.
One of the most popular tourist destination, the Netherlands counts ten sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, with Amsterdam containing two of them; the 17th-century canals of Amsterdam and the 19-20th century Defense Line of Amsterdam. The Dutch capital is also the base for seven of the world’s 500 largest companies, including Philips and ING, making it a destination for business as well.
With the addition of the city of Amsterdam, the total number of European destinations offered by the Qatar Airways reaches 34, approximately 25 percent of the carrier’s total route map.
