A simple check on their websites reservation system would confirm that flights do indeed start on November 10th with Boeing 777-200LR aircraft.

You're right, I just woke up, getting over a case of the flu thus it did not occur me to check with QR's site at first. Indeed the flights are listed. Congrats IAH in snagging another Persian Gulf carrier.

Can't wait for the QR signs to show up on the Terminal D boards on the drive up to the airport! Will they be using the new check-in area which LH and EK uses? So it's EK, SQ, and QR, who's next to start services to IAH?

Though they haven't updated the website and no press release, I love how they placed Houston somewhere in Arkansas rather than anywhere along the coast!

Already being discussed.

But as far as KE goes, that's looking less and less likely as more Asian carriers enter the IAH market.

EK and QR dont serve the same markets or same part of the world that KE does. This should have no bearing on KE entering IAH.

They said a while back that they were interested. KE would be great at IAH and I would love to see them there. However I dont think we will see KE at IAH soon. They choose instead to increase DFW (at least through October). To the observer (at least me), that would have been the wrong choice. But KE knows something we dont I guess.

Flights are timed to mainly connect with QR's Saudi Arabia and GCC bound flights where as all of its Indian subcontinent flights misconnect with IAH in both directions. So that begs the question, which market segment is going to fill up QR's economy class??? I understand that J class can be filled with the oil/energy and other forms of business traffic but economy?

Also one should notice that the QR B 77Ls used on this route are of a 2 class variety and not 3.

So strange that no F will be on QR's 77L. With a route like IAH, a premium market, they can make so much money in F.

Excellent news for IAH and the city. Bad news for CO. By the time CO finally gets around to adding wide-body services out of IAH, flyers will already be spoiled by service on EK and QR.

And thats a bad thing?

CO was snoozing with regards to IAH and int'l service and this is the result.

I agree with you, Thomas. That's why I said it was a bad thing for Continental, not for flyers!

CO was awarded the red eye to Bogota that they wanted today but it seems CO has been asleep at the wheel with regards to IAH since EZE was added.

Press Release Source: Houston Airport System

Qatar Airways Announces Historic New Nonstop International Passenger Service to Houston
Wednesday March 5, 7:24 pm ET


HOUSTON, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Middle Eastern carrier, Qatar Airways announced today it will begin operating three weekly nonstop flights between Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Qatar's Doha International Airport starting on Monday, November 10, 2008 - with plans for daily service in December of 2008.
This new service will make Qatar Airways the second Middle Eastern carrier to offer nonstop passenger flights to Houston. Qatar is home to the world's third largest gas reserves and is the world's leading exporter of liquefied natural gas. The airline will link these two energy industry hubs for the first time in history.

"This is our third premium airline for Houston in the past six months," notes Richard Vacar, director of the Houston Airport System. "Qatar Airways is a world-class air carrier that will certainly strengthen the economic and business ties between the Middle East's energy centers and the energy capital of the world. In addition, this new service makes yet another statement about how important George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Houston are as a global gateway for air travel and trade, and we are very pleased to welcome Qatar Airways to our growing family of international carriers."

Houston becomes only the third United States destination served by Qatar Airways.

"With our geographical position in the Gulf linking East and West, Qatar is ideally located for our national carrier Qatar Airways to operate to virtually any airport in the world nonstop," says Qatar Airways CEO, Akbar Al Baker.

Departing from IAH, the Monday, Wednesday and Friday flights will be operated using the carrier's new Boeing 777-200LR aircraft. The aircraft will offer a two-class configuration with 42 Business Class and 217 Economy Class seats.

More than a dozen international carriers offer service from IAH, with access to 70 international destinations.

The Houston Airport System served a record 52 million passengers in 2007. It is the 4th-largest multi-airport system in the U.S. and the 6th-largest in the world. Bush Intercontinental is the nation's 8th-busiest airport. According to J.D. Powers & Associates, William P. Hobby Airport is first in customer satisfaction among smaller airports in the United States. HAS annually contributes over $24 billion in positive economic impact to the Greater Houston region.
