The airline will operate a four-times weekly service operated by its state-of-the-art Boeing 777 featuring 42 seats in Business Class and 312 seats in Economy Class.

Passengers travelling to and from the U.S., including Seattle, can enjoy the world’s Best Business Class Seat, with Qatar Airways operating Qsuite on all 11 of its U.S. routes. The Qsuite seat layout is a 1-2-1 configuration, providing passengers with the most spacious, fully private, comfortable and socially distanced Business Class product in the sky, with its unique sliding doors. Passengers can also stay connected with family, friends and colleagues with Super Wi-Fi connectivity available on board all Seattle flights.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is committed to enhancing its connectivity with the U.S. market. Bringing forward the launch of flights to Seattle, our second new U.S. destination since the onset of the pandemic, epitomises this commitment. With flights to Washington State’s largest city our U.S. network will grow to 11 gateways, surpassing the number of destinations we operated in the U.S. pre-COVID19. We look forward to launching our Seattle service and connecting with the hub of our future oneworld partner, Alaska Airlines.”

Port of Seattle Commission President, Peter Steinbrueck, said: “Despite the worldwide pandemic, Qatar Airways' new service to SEA demonstrates the strength and resilience of our region as an important global travel destination. We  are committed to improving the global traveller experience, and will continue to invest confidently in projects such as the International Arrivals Facility and North Satellite Modernization programs at SEA.”

Seattle is the seventh new destination added by Qatar Airways since the start of the pandemic. The launch of flights to Seattle will increase Qatar Airways’ U.S. network to 66 weekly flights to 11 destinations in the U.S., connecting onwards to hundreds of American cities through strategic partnerships with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and JetBlue. Seattle joins existing U.S. destinations including Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), Philadelphia (PHL), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington, D.C.
