QATAR Airways: Daily flights to Sydney & Melbourne from 1 December 2021
Qatar is one of the few airlines that has maintained a scaled back service to Australia throughout the pandemic, including a Brisbane service, which the airline hopes to continue post-border closure.
For the moment, Qatar will be running 2 services to the recently re-opened border states of New South Wales and Victoria with services to Sydney and Melbourne respectively:
- Sydney-Doha: QR909 departs 9.45pm-10pm arriving Doha 4.35-4.50 am the next day – B777-300ER with Qsuites
- Melbourne-Doha: QR905 departs 10.55pm arriving Doha 5.20 am the next day – A350-1000 also with Qsuites
Yep, both flights get these stunning sliding doored business class cabins, both with dine-on-demand, and of course, access to the OneWorld alliance partner Qantas First Class lounges in Melbourne and Sydney.
Qatar Airways, preferably while sitting in one of their A380’s is my favourite airline. And, I haven’t even experienced their Qsuites yet. Something I hope to remedy once our international borders open for regular tourism.
