Quote: With effect from March 30, Qatar Airways will be offering a fourth daily non-stop flight between here and London Heathrow taking the airline's capacity between Qatar and the UK up to 42 services a week.
Flight QR017 will depart Doha every day at 4.35 pm, arriving at London Heathrow at 10pm.
The return flight, QR018, departs Heathrow at 7.55am, returning to Doha at 4.50pm.
The flight will be operated with an Airbus A330 aircraft in a three-class configuration of up to 12 seats in First, 24 in Business and 223 in Economy. There is a live television option enabling passengers to choose from a variety of live TV programmes.
The timing is perfect for those who choose to travel from DOH in the afternoon, and/or leave Heathrow in the early morning. It seems like this flight is catered for O&D passengers from Doha to London since the transit time to most other long-haul destinations are at least 3 hours away.
