Qatar Airways had a significant presence at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) yesterday, thrilling visitors with its show-stopping US-themed entertainment at the airline’s brand new exhibition stand.
Qatar Airways will prove yet again its international leadership position by introducing two new routes to the United States – Miami and Dallas/Fort Worth – in the next two months, reinforcing its position as one of the world’s leading airlines.
The airline celebrated the imminent launch of flights to its sixth and seventh destinations in the US with Miami-styled Salsa entertainment and some amazing rope tricks courtesy of a local cowboy from Dallas.
The national carrier of the State of Qatar will begin operations to and from Miami on 10 June and Dallas/Fort Worth on 1 July 2014. Qatar Airways will operate four weekly non-stop flights to Miami and direct daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth from its hub in Doha.
