Following a three-year absence, Qatar Airlines has announced that it would resume daily flights to Doha from Birmingham Airport.
Although operations were halted early in 2020 owing to the coronavirus epidemic, the Doha-based airline intends to resume daily flights.
After a three-year absence, it will be coming back to BHX in Solihull on July 10 with its Boeing 787 Dreamliner. But the airline hasn’t said whether or not it will bring its A380 model to Birmingham, which has a capacity of more than 800 passengers.
As a result of the airline’s absence from BHX, travelers’ options for traveling to Doha were constrained, and other operators’ costs for services to the UAE increased. As a result, news of Qatar Airways’ return will undoubtedly be welcomed by travelers.
Emirates is also scheduled to resume its A380 service from BHX this summer, as we recently reported. As a result, travelers will have more alternatives and cheaper options when flying to the UAE and beyond. The fact that Doha serves as a major hub for access to countries like Australia gives travelers from the Midlands more options.
Birmingham Airport CEO Nick Barton said
In 2016, Qatar Airlines made its first flight out of Birmingham Airport. “We are delighted to welcome back Qatar Airways,” Birmingham Airport CEO Nick Barton said. Our customers have been missing the ability to connect from Birmingham Airport to the Middle East and elsewhere using their extensive network.

“Birmingham Airport is the worldwide gateway to the West Midlands region, an economic powerhouse on a strong growth trajectory, which will be further boosted by Qatar Airlines’ presence,” says the airport.
Qatar Airways’ Eric Odone, Vice President of Sales for Europe, stated: “Qatar Airways is thrilled to announce the restart of flights to Birmingham Airport, further establishing our footprint and collaboration with the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom is a crucial market for the airline, not only because of the strong ties to the business, technological, and industrial sectors but also because of the leisure travel market, which we saw during the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
