Qatar Airways is pressing on with its B787 Dreamliner expansion by introducing the aircraft on flights to Munich, Zurich and Frankfurt.
The new-generation aircraft is being deployed on four-times weekly flights to Munich, and three-times weekly services to Zurich, and both destinations rise to daily services from February. From February 1, one of the double daily services to Frankfurt will be served by a B787 too.
The addition of the German-speaking cities to the already established 787 on one of the five daily London Heathrow flights takes to four the number of European routes featuring the aircraft.
Qatar Airways will deploy the B787 on all daily flights from Doha to Perth from February too. The airline currently operates four 787s, with a further 56 pending delivery.
The expansion comes as the US Federal Aviation Administration continues its review into the aircraft following a series of incidents last week.
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said the aircraft offers a “second-to-none flying experience” when it comes to comfort, entertainment and gastronomy.
