Qatar Airways has announced it will bring forward the launch of its four weekly flights to Seattle from 15th March to 29th January 2021. The airline will operate a four-times weekly service operated by its state-of-the-art Boeing 777.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, commented: “Qatar Airways is committed to enhancing its connectivity with the U.S. market. Bringing forward the launch of flights to Seattle, our second new U.S. destination since the onset of the pandemic, epitomises this commitment. With flights to Washington State’s largest city our U.S. network will grow to 11 gateways, surpassing the number of destinations we operated in the U.S. pre-COVID19. We look forward to launching our Seattle service and connecting with the hub of our future oneworld partner, Alaska Airlines.”
Port of Seattle Commission President, Peter Steinbrueck, added: “Despite the worldwide pandemic, Qatar Airways’ new service to SEA demonstrates the strength and resilience of our region as an important global travel destination. We are committed to improving the global traveller experience, and will continue to invest confidently in projects such as the International Arrivals Facility and North Satellite Modernisation programs at SEA.”
