Qatar Airways makes its inaugural flight in Düsseldorf

Qatar Airways’ inaugural flight from Doha to Düsseldorf in Germany landed at Düsseldorf International Airport on November 15, marking the launch of the airline’s latest German destination.

Operated by a Boeing 787 aircraft, flight QR085 was welcomed with an opening ceremony attended by Qatar Airways VP Sales, Europe, Eric Odone and Düsseldorf International Airport’s Chief Executive Officer, Thomas Schnalke.

Qatar Airways currently offers services to Munich, Frankfurt and Berlin, making Düsseldorf its fourth destination in Germany. In July 2022, the award-winning airline increased its flight frequency from Frankfurt to three times a day.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to launch direct services to Düsseldorf, expanding our services in Germany, and marking our entry to the Ruhr region – just in time for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. With this new service, not only will German passengers enjoy daily flights from a new location, but customers in the nearby countries of Belgium and the Netherlands will also have access to over 150 destinations across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.”

“Düsseldorf Airport now has one more great long-haul flight connection,” explained Thomas Schnalke, Chairman of the Airport Management Board. “Qatar Airways is one of the most renowned airlines worldwide. Their decision to include Düsseldorf in their route portfolio is a confirmation for our location. For business travelers as well as for vacationers, the new route is an asset. We look forward to many years of successful cooperation.”

The new direct services to Düsseldorf will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an environmentally advanced aircraft, which consumes 20 per cent less fuel and emits 20 per cent less carbon dioxide than other similar aircrafts.

As well as enjoying the award-winning in-flight service and catering on-board, passengers can also look forward to Oryx One, Qatar Airways’ in-flight entertainment program, which offers a wide selection of the latest blockbuster movies, series, and music for in-flight entertainment.
