Qatar offers daily Edinburgh-Doha flights
Qatar Airways is increasing its flights between Edinburgh and Doha from five times a week to daily from next May.
The extra services are being introduced six months after the airline became Edinburgh Airport’s first Middle Eastern link.
The link through the recently-opened Hamad International in Doha proves connections to 145 destinations.
Qatar Airways will continue flying its Boeing 787 Dreamliner , the first scheduled aircraft of its type in Scotland. It says it can offer passengers some of the fastest journey times to Australia with flight times to Melbourne reduced from 26 hours with two transfers, to 20 hours with a single transfer at Hamad.
