Effective April 1, 2014, Qatar Airways, the Doha-based carrier, will upgrade its capacity on its Melbourne - Doha route, with a Boeing 777-300 aircraft.

The introduction of the new long-range wide-body aircraft will result in a 30% capacity increase on the daily flights to Melbourne, which translates to 76 more seats per day.

Qatar Airways also flies daily to Perth in Western Australia.

With seven route launches already set to join the current network of 136 destinations in 2014, passengers will have numerous options when connecting through the airline’s hub in Doha, Qatar. Qatar Airways’ network is steadily increasing with new and exciting routes, such as Larnaca and Edinburgh both scheduled to launch soon, bringing the total number of destinations in Europe to 32.

Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 17 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 131 aircraft to 136 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
