Travel Life | Qatar Airlines Lands in Atlanta! Friday 20 May, 2016

Qatar-Airways-Atlanta-4 I am excited as I attended Qatar Airways hosted a capacity-crowd press conference in Atlanta to discuss its new service, which will commence June 1, 2016Atlanta is the busiest airport in the world and is the tenth destination the airline serves in the United States, connecting to Qatar Airways’ home at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar, and to more than 150 destinations world-wide. So this is exciting news for all international travels connecting to Atlanta or ATL travelers in general. You guys know how I am on the go a lot with my international travels, I never traveled Qatar Airways before so I wanted to learn how this was going to impact Hartfield Jackson’s airport as a premier airline.

Atlanta is projected to be a key route for business and leisure traffic, conveniently connecting the Far East, Africa and the Middle East regions to the State of Georgia, positively impacting business, conference- and convention attendance, and family and friends visitor traffic. The route between HartsfieldJackson (ATL) and Hamad International Airport (HIA) will be operated daily nonstop with a Boeing 777, with the exception of the first flight – which will be deployed with an Airbus A380 superjumbo for one day only, on June 1.

“We know passengers want more than just travel; they want an in flight experience that provides comfort, from the design of the seat to the quality of the cuisine, to the range of entertainment options available. These elements matter more now than ever before, as we witness the increasing trend of long haul and ultra-long haul travel. Our network, much like our on-board product, is optimized for long journeys, offering customers fast and seamless transfers at our home airport, or the option to extend your time in Doha to experience the world’s finest airport. We want to go places together with our customers, to be part of their journey and contribute to a memorable experience.” – via Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker.

What I learned about Qatar is that they pride themselves on comfort and entertainment services on their airlines. In 2015 Qatar Airways launched Oryx One, an enhanced interface for its in flight entertainment system, increasing the number of movies and TV shows on board from 950 to up to 3,000. Passengers flying on Qatar Airways flights served by its B787, A350, A380, A319 as well as select A320 and A330 aircraft can also stay in touch with their friends and family around the world by using the five-star airline’s on-board Wi-Fi and GSM service. With long flights I can see myself getting comfy with the seating and television!

Learning more about Qatar Airlines made me excited about future traveling with the brand. I live in Atlanta, but many international flights you have to connect to major international airlines – so this is amazing that a premiere international brand will be at my home. They have great introductory rates currently from Atlanta you should check out – and hopefully  I will be flying with them soon! I will love to take flight with Qatar Airways – I will keep you all informed when I do!
