Qatar Airways Commences Daily Non-Stop Service to Los Angeles
Qatar Airways rang in the New Year with a new daily, non-stop service between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Doha, which started January 1. The new route features the airline’s landmark Boeing 777-200 and represents Qatar Airways’ first passenger service to the West Coast of the United States. The expansion to LAX is the first of three new US destinations planned for 2016, along with Boston (BOS) on March 16th and Atlanta (ATL) on June 1st.
The first arrival to Los Angeles was recognised with a special gate ceremony, celebrating the passengers on the historic flight. The airline will officially celebrate the new Los Angeles route on 12 January 2016, when Al Baker will host a press conference and a star-studded VIP gala.
