“Qatar Airways has been keen to tap into Tokyo with dedicated flights for many years but had been unable to do so due to limitations at Narita.


“The runway extension at Narita here in Tokyo has created tremendous opportunities for Qatar Airways and, after all, we are extremely delighted to be the only Middle East carrier operating a daily service to this wonderful city.”   


Added Al Baker: “Forward bookings for the coming months are exceeding our expectations. And we are expecting even further interest with the addition of Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires to our global network last week, becoming key South American gateways for travel to and from Japan via our Doha hub.


“Qatar is also an important destination with over 1,000 Japanese expatriates living in Doha and over 30 leading Japanese companies engaged in business from across the utility, energy and heavy industry sectors.”


Qatar Airways has boosted its route network this year with the addition of seven new routes – Bengaluru (Bangalore), Copenhagen, Ankara, Tokyo, Barcelona, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires.


Last week, in addition to Phuket and Hanoi, Al Baker announced Qatar Airways plans to launch four new European routes – Budapest, Bucharest, Nice and Brussels – over a nine-week period from November as part of the airline’s ongoing expansion drive.


“By early next year, Qatar Airways will be operating to 98 destinations, a figure we expect to easily top 100 during 2011, which indeed is a remarkable feat for an airline which is only 13 years old,” said Al Baker.


Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Commercial East Asia and South West Pacific Marwan Koleilat reinforced the airline’s commitment to Japan and Asia as a whole.


“Our new service to Tokyo Narita is yet another important milestone for the airline linking up with Doha, an ideal hub from where we offer customers excellent onward connections to Europe, Africa, Middle East and The Americas.


“Qatar Airways is able to capitalise on the strong passenger demand in Japan and across Asia, continuing to raise our profile by strengthening our relationships with the travel trade and the corporate market.”


Ranked Five Star for service and excellence, Qatar Airways was recently voted third best airline in the world following the annual Skytrax survey of 18 million international passengers. In the survey, the airline was also voted as having the Best Business Class Catering in the world, as well as being honoured as the Best Airline in The Middle East for the fifth consecutive year.


Qatar Airways also became the first airline to receive the Staff Service Excellence Award for the Middle East in the Skytrax survey. The new award replaces the Best Cabin Staff in the Middle East category, which Qatar Airways has won for the past seven years. The expanded category now includes airline staff at all passenger touch points, including onboard, reservations, check-in and airport personnel.


By 2013, Qatar Airways plans to serve 120 key business and leisure destinations worldwide with a modern fleet of 120 aircraft. Today, the airline’s fleet stands at 84 aircraft, flying to 92 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, and North & South America.


Qatar Airways has orders for 80 Airbus A350s, 60 Boeing 787s and 32 Boeing 777s, with deliveries of the latter having started in November 2007. The airline is one of the customers of the twin-deck Airbus A380 ‘super jumbos’ with five on order and scheduled for delivery from 2012, by which time the New Doha International Airport would have opened.
