Fly To Australia Faster With Qatar Airways

Posted: 13th August 2014

Qatar Airways’ recently introduced Edinburgh-Doha service means travellers benefit from significantly reduced journey times to Perth and Melbourne.

Following the launch in May, journey times to Perth reduced to just 20 hours with one quick international transfer while total journey time to Melbourne is 21 hours 40 minutes, with a short 1 hour stopover in Doha.

The new 5 times a week service is the first for Edinburgh to the Middle East region, removing the need for any extra domestic transfers within the UK.

Qatar Airways passengers enjoy a high standard of comfort on board one of the world’s newest aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with direct aisle access for all 22 Business Class seats and individual 10.5 inch television screens for all Economy Class seats.
