Starting on July 1st, 2016, Qatar Airways will deploy a Boeing 787-8 «Dreamliner» between Doha and Geneva.
This aircraft will replace the previously operated Airbus A320 on the daily rotation between its base at Hamad International Airport and Geneva Airport.
The 787-8 has a total capacity of 254 seats, in 2-class configuration: 22 passengers in Business class and 232 in Economy.
For Geneva Airport, this route is first regular one with the long-awaited B787, the new benchmark in aeronautical technology.
The timetable remains almost unchanged with respect to the current situation, offering an evening flight eastbound and a morning service westbound. The Geneva departure takes place at 18:00 with a night landing in Doha at 1:10. On the way back, the plane leaves Qatar at 7:25 to reach Switzerland at 13:30 local time, on a daily basis.
The national carrier of Qatar operates to Geneva since 2007. Qatar Airways is member of the Oneworld alliance, already represented in Genva by such airlines as BA, Iberia, Finnair, etc. Doha, the capital of Qatar, is also a major hub for connections to Asia and Australia (new flights to Sydney since March 1st, 2016).
