Qatar Airways adds daily A380 service to Melbourne

Qatar Airways has marked its seventh anniversary in Melbourne, Australia, by announcing plans to introduce its A380 aircraft to Melburnians from 30 June 2017 in order to meet rising passenger demand.

The 517-seater A380 aircraft will increase Qatar Airways’ current daily capacity by 44 per cent on this route to meet the growing travel and trade demand.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “As we continue to grow apace in Australia, we have seen a clear need to inject additional capacity on the Melbourne service. We are delighted to introduce our A380 aircraft to Melbourne after seven years of operation to the world’s most liveable city. Our expansive European network provides plenty of homecoming options for one of Australia’s most culturally diverse cities, which is home to many families from European heritage including the United Kingdom, Italy and Greece.”
