Qatar Airways celebrates 5 years of Houston route
Doha, April 7, 2014
Qatar Airways, a member of the oneworld alliance, recently celebrated five years of flying to Houston, Texas.
The airline began daily, non-stop service between Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Doha on March 30, 2009.
Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: "This year marks an important anniversary with the celebration of five years of five-star service from Houston. The Houston-Doha route connects Texas to the world's leading cities across Africa, Asia, Australia, India, and the Middle East."
Named the World's Best Business Class by Skytrax, Qatar Airways attributes the strong performance of the Houston-Doha route primarily to business travelers from Houston's Oil and Gas Industry, who use the route to connect with the Middle East and other industry centers, such as Perth, Australia.
Houston flyers have also enjoyed Qatar Airways' flights to popular travel destinations, such as Delhi, Doha, Katmandu and the Maldives. - TradeArabia News Service
