Qatar Airways, the flag carrier of Qatar, has announced the launch of a third daily flight to New York (JFK), the largest airport in the U.S. The new flight will start from 30 October 2023 and will offer convenient early morning arrivals and late evening departures from New York (JFK).
The new flight will also offer new connections between New York and over 80 destinations in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia, through Qatar Airways’ hub in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
Customers from across the U.S. will benefit from the improved connectivity between Qatar Airways and its U.S. partners, JetBlue, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines, via New York. With three flights per day in the morning, afternoon and evening, customers can easily connect from cities such as Detroit, Raleigh-Durham, Orlando or Tampa, to Doha, Kathmandu, Bangkok or Johannesburg. Members of both Loyalty Programs – Qatar Airways Privilege Club and JetBlue TrueBlue – can earn miles from each other’s extensive codeshare flights.
Qatar Airways’ strategic partnership with American Airlines will also grow with American Airlines starting flights from its Philadelphia hub to Doha, from 28 October 2023. American Airlines’ new Philadelphia – Doha service will offer customers seamless travel options and benefits by connecting to more than 90 cities across North America, the Caribbean and Central America, and to over 80 cities across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Alaska Airlines and Qatar Airways will also enhance their connectivity for customers from the West Coast with a significant codeshare expansion and distribution enablement. In the coming weeks, guests will be able to book to more destinations beyond Doha on Alaska Airlines’ website.
