Doha, June 13 (QNA) - The first Qatar Airways direct non-stop flight from Doha to Malaga touched down on 13 June at Spain's Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport.
Qatar Airways' new four-time weekly seasonal services to Malaga will be served with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner until 16 September 2018. Qatar Airways currently operates direct double-daily flights to Madrid and Barcelona.
Malaga is a beautiful and cosmopolitan city nestled along Spain's Costa del Sol in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. The charming coastal city is known for its magnificent climate all year round. Malaga offers a wide variety of activities for visitors to enjoy, such as exploring the historic Roman fort, basking on one of Malaga's wonderful Mediterranean beaches or visiting one of its many museums.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said: "We are truly delighted to launch direct services to Malaga, the jewel of the Costa del Sol and our third Spanish gateway. Malaga offers so much for holidaymakers to enjoy, from its magnificent beaches to its spectacular Andalusian architecture. Qatar Airways' new direct services to Malaga are timed perfectly to coincide with the summer holiday season, allowing us to connect more visitors to this unmissable destination.
"This new route also reflects the strength of our commitment to the Spanish market, which we currently serve with direct double-daily flights to both Madrid and Barcelona. We look forward to bringing travellers to Malaga, and enabling them to experience all the delights this charming city has to offer."
The four weekly seasonal flights to Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class. Passengers on board will be able to enjoy the airline's superior entertainment system, Oryx One, offering up to 4,000 entertainment options to choose from.
