Qatar Airways is proud to announce that it will operate a new service between Doha and Birmingham, in the United Kingdom, from 30th March 2016, adding to its existing services to London Heathrow, Manchester and Edinburgh.

With eight flights a week, including two flights on Saturdays, passengers travelling to and from Birmingham will have access to convenient and seamless transfers at the airline’s state-of-the-art hub Hamad International Airport.

Birmingham is the largest and most populous city outside of London and is situated in the West Midlands. The economy is largely dominated by the service sector and the city is an important transport, retail, events and conference hub.

The announcement of this new route further strengthens Qatar Airways’ commitment to the UK regions, with Birmingham being the centre for the largest concentration of businesses outside of London, boasting 34,285 companies including over 700 international firms. The city attracts nearly 34 million people a year for both business and pleasure and is ideally situated at the centre of the UK’s rail and motorway network.
