Xiamen Airlines to launch new routes from Beijing and Xiamen to Doha

Xiamen Airlines recently announced that it will launch regular flights between Beijing Daxing and Doha on October 20th and Xiamen-Doha on October 31st. The opening of two direct flights to the Middle East coincides with the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Qatar. This marks an important initiative by Xiamen Airlines in implementing the “Belt and Road” initiative, further closing the distance between China and Qatar. It establishes an “Air Silk Road”, facilitating economic and trade exchanges, cultural interactions, business and tourism between the two regions.

According to the latest plan, the Beijing-Doha route will operate daily, depart from Beijing at 1830 and arrive in Doha at 2245 local time, in return leave Doha at 0200 local time and arrive in Beijing at 1520, while the Xiamen-Doha route will operate two flights per week, depart from Xiamen at 0005 and arrive in Doha at 0500 local time, in return leave Doha at 1930 local time and back to Xiamen at 0755 the next day. Both routes will be operated by Boeing 787 Dreamliner, offering passengers more spacious and comfortable seats. The First-class and Business-class seats can recline to a fully flat position of 180 degrees, providing passengers with an enhanced sleeping experience during long-haul flights.
