(MENAFN - Arab News) Qatar Airways yesterday announced Dec. 13 as the launch date of its first long-haul Boeing 787 commercial service from Doha to London Heathrow.

The 787 Dreamliner will debut on the Heathrow route as Doha-based Qatar Airways becomes the first airline to operate regular scheduled flights to the UK with Boeing's next generation aircraft.

Initially, one of the airline's five daily flights will be operated with the Boeing 787 - Flight QR 075 departing Doha at 6:25 a.m., arriving at London Heathrow at 11:05 a.m., with the return flight QR 076 departing London Heathrow at 3:05 p.m., arriving in Doha at 00:45 a.m. the following day.
Seats on the 787 Doha-London flights are now bookable online at qatarairways.com, through any Qatar Airways reservation office or local travel agent.

Passengers will have the opportunity to travel onboard one of the most sophisticated, spacious and comfortable aircraft in the skies today.
Qatar Airways took delivery of the first of 60 Dreamliners earlier this month with the second arriving over the weekend.

Both aircraft are currently operating commercial flights on intra-Gulf routes to familiarize operating crew with the aeroplane before entering the long-haul market.

The Dreamliner marks the start of an exciting new era for travelers worldwide with unparalleled levels of comfort and luxury onboard Boeing's newest aircraft.

Qatar Airways' new addition to its fleet also heralds a fresh era for Middle East aviation with the carrier being the Boeing 787 launch customer in the region.

Qatar Airways' CEO Akbar Al-Baker said the maiden long-haul 787 service to London had been in the pipeline for some time.

"We are delighted at last with today's announcement that in just over two weeks' time, the UK market will see its first 787 on a regular full commercial service when it flies into London Heathrow," he said.
