Qatar Airways has unveiled plans to launch direct flights between Doha and Osaka, starting April 6, 2020.
The second largest metropolitan area of Japan, Osaka will be the airline’s third gateway into the country.
Qatar Airways began direct services to Tokyo Narita in 2010 and launched its Tokyo Haneda service in 2014 from Doha’s Hamad International Airport (HIA).
The flight will be operated by an Airbus A350-900 aircraft, featuring 36 seats in Business Class and 247 seats in Economy Class.
The operation will initially begin with a five times weekly service, increasing to a daily service from 23 June 2020.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said, “We are truly delighted to be bringing our award-winning service to Osaka, adding this highly sought after Japanese destination to our global network. Osaka is a very important destination, and our service to the cosmopolitan city will enable us to provide a seamless journey for our passengers connecting from our extensive network of more than 160 destinations worldwide.”
Between April 6, 2020 and June 23, 2020, flights will operate every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
QR802 is scheduled to depart Doha (DOH) at 02:10 and arrive in Osaka (KIX) at 17:50.
From Osaka, QR803 is timed to depart KIX at 23:30 and arrive in Doha at 04:50.
