Qatar Airways has announced it will launch direct five-times weekly flights to Gothenburg, Sweden starting on December 12, 2018, making it the airline’s second Swedish gateway after Stockholm.

Five weekly flights to Gothenburg will be served with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.

Gothenburg, Sweden’s second-largest city, is set to grow by almost a third by the end of 2035. It is an important industrial and business centre, with the largest port in the Nordic countries.

Qatar Airways launched flights to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport in 2007 (top photo). The Stockholm-Doha route, which operates 14 flights per week, is also operated by a wide-body 787 Dreamliner with 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.

Qatar Airways currently serves the Nordic capital cities of Oslo, Norway; Copenhagen, Denmark; Stockholm, Sweden and Helsinki, Finland, to and from Doha’s Hamad International Airport (HIA). Alongside Helsinki’s current Boeing 787 service, the cities of Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo are also served with a fleet of Dreamliner aircraft.

Qatar Airways recently revealed a host of upcoming new global destinations, including the announcement that it will be the first Gulf carrier to begin direct service to Luxembourg. Other exciting new destinations to be launched by the airline include Tallinn, Estonia; Valletta, Malta; Langkawi, Malaysia and Da Nang, Vietnam.
