First of all, Happy A.net Birthday Ojas!

Secondly, I was so happy that they finally announced ending weeks of speculation in the internet.

Thirdly, did you notice Sydney disappeared magically from the list of upcoming destinations?

So, is it just me, or do a lot of these route announcments from Middle East carriers appear to be "monkey see, monkey do"?

I think the CEO stated awhile ago maybe December or January after MEL started up that SYD had been put on hold for a while, they were even quoted as saying they were investigating PER over SYD. With the lack of compition out of PER I think we might just see this happen!

Lack of competition... What am I missing?

I found links of AirAsiaX also offering promotions:

So with EK competing on premium and AirAsiaX on ultra-low cost... are yeilds really that good from Perth?

Well they had to do something with those -LRs. Yes I did noticed that SYD disappeared from the route map.

Anyhow QR has pretty exciting 2010.

Happy B-day Ojas!

I have to say, would be very interesting to see EZE work...and whether that market will develop enough to become a nonstop.
Interesting to see how EK will respond, and whether it will be a repeat of IAH. Perhaps EK will introduce DXB-GIG-EZE soon...

Thanks for the news.

This was deeply discussed here Qatar Airways Requested DOH-GRU-EZE (by AF086 Feb 5 2010 in Civil Aviation)

I wish all the best for QR in Brazil and Argentina!

Yeah pretty much they are, WA is going through a rather large minning boom, not to mention it's rather large tourist potential and huge immigrant based populations there is significant demand.

Does anyone know how many connection banks there are in DOH, just the one? Or multiple like EK?

According to information released in Brazil, QR will start DOH-GRU-EZE in June 2010, and the formal announcement was made by QR VP Marketing, Taco Nieuwenhuijsen, to Brazil's Miniter of Tourism and Brazil's President of EMBRATUR.

A Portuguese national, Antonio Bandeira, former RG staff, has been nominated QR Director for Latin America and will be based in Sao Paulo.

Thanks for the info.
They submit this schedule to ANAC as probably they find out the departure out of EZE and the early morning stop would be too disruptive for passengers. Now continues to be not a comfortable one, but better.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Good to see airlines using nonpeak times in GRU. What I can say is that we need more flights to fill the gap between Asia (especially South Asia) and Brazil. There are many markets which QR operates and are currently not available to Brazil (limited to EK) and which there is growing demand to Brazil.

The flight will start on 24 June which is earlier than expected. I thought it would only start late July.

The flights have already been loaded in the Doha AIrport's database and in the schedules. However, its still not bookable via Qatar Airways. Should be very soon.

GRU and EZE are now bookable via Qatar website. QR has made an agrrement with Uruguay's PU to feed its network in GRU/EZE although PU has limited network in the region.

What a lovely schedule ... not! Still, no doubt it is good for onward connections, which is presumably the main intention.

Once EZE gets up and running, maybe QR can de-link them; the EZE-DOH sector is just within the still air range of the 787 at the moment, but hopefully in due course, a higher gross weight version can make the route more comfortably.
