Qatar Airways looks forward to providing passengers on the recently-launched Boston route with a “memorable journey that provides a superior in-flight experience”, group chief executive Akbar al-Baker has stressed.
He made the observation while hosting a press conference in Boston, US, to report on the new service from Boston Logan International Airport to the carrier’s hub in Doha. The airline began operations to Boston on March 16.
Qatar Airways’ service to Boston is operated non-stop daily with the Airbus A350, for which the airline was the global launch customer. It also operates the A350 to Munich, Philadelphia and Singapore, and will start operating to Adelaide in Australia from next month. There are currently eight Airbus A350s in the fleet, with a further 72 to be delivered, the airline has said in a statement.
Speaking on the occasion, al-Baker said: “We have introduced the world’s newest aircraft to Boston and look forward to providing all of our passengers on this route with a memorable journey that provides a superior in-flight experience.
“Boston is a key city for business and leisure travellers, and total comfort and hospitality is the point of focus in particular as the US market means that our passengers are travelling long- and ultra-long haul.
“Our entire customer experience is focused on the details, on all aircraft types. Qatar Airways has the youngest international fleet in the world, averaging just five years old, and our experience is second to none.”
Ed Freni, Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) director of aviation, said: “We are pleased that Qatar Airways, recognised by Skytrax as 2015’s Airline of the Year, is coming to Boston. This is yet another affirmation of the importance of the regional economy to the global economy. People from around the world come here for education, for healthcare, for business and for fun, and we are proud that Logan Airport is New England’s gateway to the world.”
Since the commencement of services to Boston, the airline has carried travellers to destinations all across its route map, with passengers mainly connecting onwards to the Gulf, Middle East, Asia, the Indian subcontinent and Africa regions, the statement notes.
“The route has indicated success within weeks of operation, highlighting the need for long-haul travel options to emerging and mature business and leisure markets such as Colombo, Delhi, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Kuwait and Singapore, among others,” the airline added.
Qatar Airways has also commenced daily cargo services between Logan International Airport and its global cargo network of more than 150 destinations. Currently the airline operates six cargo destinations to the US: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Los Angeles.
