Qatar Airways announce daily flight from Cardiff
Qatar Airways has officially announced it will begin operating daily direct flights from Cardiff Airport, with the first flight taking place as early as 1st May 2018.
BQ Live reported earlier this year that the airline was planning a new Cardiff route, and the inaugural date has now been set.
The new service between the Welsh capital and Doha will be operated on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
This will be the first regular direct long-haul flight that links Wales to a major global hub in the Gulf region each and every day.
