Qatar Airways sets launch date for Dallas flights


(Posted 05th December 2013)

Travellers from Eastern Africa, where Qatar Airways presently serves Entebbe, Kigali, Nairobi, Kilimanjaro and Dar es Salaam with daily and even double daily flights, will be happy to hear that come July 01st next year will the Skytrax 5 star airline add another US destination, Dallas – Fort Worth or in short DFW.

Qatar Airways will use a B777-200LR for the service, offering their award winning two class configuration to passengers, including a flat bed 2x2x2 seat configuration in business class and a 3x3x3 configuration in economy class, offering 42 seats in the premium cabin and 217 in economy.

With East Africa’s recent finds of oil and gas will Dallas be Qatar Airways’ second destination in Texas, a state rich in oil resources itself, adding to the daily flights to Texas’ oil capital of Houston.

While ‘J.R. Ewing’ sadly is no more, the Southfork Ranch outside Dallas remains open for the public to visit as season three of ‘Dallas Reloaded 2.0’ goes on screen in early 2014. Also available for visitors are a range of other landmarks and landscapes viewers of the TV series ‘Dallas’ are used to only seeing on their screens, with plenty of more to see across the state which has retained much of its flair and appeal from the good ol’ wild west days.

QR presently already serves New York, Chicago, Washington and Houston and in 2014 will Philadelphia on 02nd of April, Miami on the 10th of June and as just announced Dallas on the 01st of July join the growing number of the airline’s global destinations. Qatar Airways now operates 128 aircraft to 133 destinations across the globe.

Qatar Airways is since 30th of October a member of the oneworld alliance.
