Qatar Airways said to deploy its new Airbus A350-900 for the inaugural flight from Doha to Cardiff on 1 May 2018. The first Qatar airways service between Doha, Qatar and Cardiff, UK, will commence from 22 May 2018.
The flight will connect Welsh capital with the rest of the world via Qatar Airways’s global Doha hub. The airline said to continue daily flights between the cities by its Boeing 787s, which is configured as 1-2-1 layout with 232 seats in economy and 22 seats in business class.
Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said “It makes sense that the inaugural flight that welcomes Qatar Airways to Wales is on the A350-900, as the wings of this very plane are built at the Airbus plant in Broughton, North Wales”
