  • October 24, 2023

Qatar Airways firms it’s commitment to New Zealand with resumption of daily direct services from Auckland to over 160 destinations.

With the resumption of direct services from New Zealand, Qatar Airways continues it’s firm commitment to New Zealand business travellers offering new levels of service and seamless connections from the airline’s home and hub, award-winning Hamad International Airport. Qatar Airways is the most awarded international airline winning the coveted The World’s Best Airline for a record seven times by Skytrax World Airline Awards. (2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2022)

Qatar Airways Airbus A350-1000 offers the range and comfort that business travellers demand offering an unmatched experience. It offers a spacious cabin across a two class configuration with destination-inspired cuisine and award-winning hospitality. The Airbus A350-1000 fuselage is made from a carbon-fibre composite plastic rather than aluminum which means that the cabin can be pressurised more. On the Qatar Airways Airbus A350-1000, one can be flying at 35,000 to 40,000 feet, but the cabin will be at around 5,500 feet. This reduces effects of jet lag and is less fatiguing on one of the World’s longest flight routes. The Airbus A350-1000 is also greener and burns 25% less fuel than most previous generation aircraft.
