Qatar Airways starts flying a380 to Sydney due to increase in passenger demand

Sydney has become Qatar Airways’ first destination in Australia to be served by its A380 aircraft. Following the route’s inauguration with the Boeing 777-300 on March 1, 2016, Qatar Airways has seen a steady growth in demand for its service on the route. The 517-seater A380 aircraft increases 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: “Qatar Airways is proud to bring our flagship A380 to the extremely popular Sydney route so soon after the launch.  We are pleased to be in a position to satisfy the demand for travel to this region and allow even more customers to enjoy our award winning service.”
