Dublin is getting a new air route - and a new way to fly to Australia

It will also be Qatar Airways’ first Irish route.

QATAR AIRWAYS HAS announced it will run flights from Dublin to the Qatari capital of Doha from 12 June.

The route will be Ireland’s first ever direct link to Qatar, which is set to host football’s World Cup in 2022.

It will also be Qatar Airways’ first Irish route.

Doha’s Hamad International Airport acts as a hub in the gulf region, meaning that passengers can fly to 150 destinations, including Sydney, Tokyo, Bangkok and Beijing.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, said the new route to Dublin connects the airline to “an important and growing international hub.”

“Qatar Airways is very pleased to add Dublin to its route network. Ireland’s increasing presence in international business and affairs, and its status as a major tourism centre, makes it an attractive investment.

“I am immensely proud of Qatar Airways’ continued global expansion.”

The Dublin-Doha route will be serviced by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Daily flights will leave Dublin at 7.45am and 3.25pm every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and at 8.50am every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
