Qatar Airways has announced that it will resume flights to London Gatwick in June 2022 for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Starting 5th June 2022, Qatar Airways will once again operate a daily flight between Doha’s Hamad International Airport and London Gatwick Airport. The airline will deploy a Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner featuring 22 Business Class seats and 232 standard Economy Class seats.
Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive, Qatar Airways, said:
Our commitment to the UK market has been unwavering and we operated continuously and reliably throughout the pandemic, so I am pleased we can resume our popular service to London Gatwick. We offer excellent connectivity to and from the UK, providing travellers with more choice and convenience. This year is very special for us, not least as it is the 25th anniversary of the start of our flights to London Heathrow in March 1997.

The resumption of the London Gatwick service complements recently launched flights to Doha from Gatwick by Qatar Airways’ Joint Business partner British Airways, meaning the airlines can now jointly offer more options between London and Doha and beyond, earning Avios frequent flyer points as they go.
Passengers travelling to/from London Gatwick can easily connect via Doha to Qatar Airways’ destinations in Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia.
Qatar Airways operates 5-daily flights to London Heathrow, 18-flights-a-week to Manchester and 4-flights-a-week to Edinburgh, rising to daily from 2nd June 2022.
