Hello,

Qatar Airways has released details of its new Asian destination i.e. CAN-Guangzhou, China which will be served by an A 332 nonstop from DOH 5 times a week on MON / TUES / THU / FRI / SUN.

Flights begin on March 31st and can be booked on major GDS systems.

Timings are as follows :

QR 874 Dep DOH 0100 Arr CAN 1405
QR 877 Dep CAN 2040 Arr DOH 0110+1

This will make QR the first Middle Eastern Airline to offer nonstop flights from its hub airport to CAN which should be a good route for them especially with cargo yields.

Good to have CAN announced. Certainly will push the European carriers, AF and LH in mind.

This is the third Chinese destination after PEK and PVG.

The 332's used to CAN will be two class (C/Y).

Actually, it would be their fourth Chinese destination. They serve HKG as well.

A very smart move by QR; the Guangdong region, of which Guangzhou is the major city, is a major manufacturing centre and of increasing economic importance; at the very least, QR will do very well on air cargo.

Hope to see more QR route announcements soon!

A smart move. It does give them a leg up. One way to boost RASM is frequency (to a point), the other is to offer a route service no one else can!  Wink

Each airline needs to know its strengths. Trying to be everything to everyone generally results in a poor business strategy. As much as I like reading about Singapore airline's 'staterooms' and other airlines trying to compete, I am not in that market and I tend to fly the airlines that cater towards my market. An airline that focuses and delivers an excellent J/Y class products strikes me as a better long term prospect.
