National carrier Qatar Airways has embarked on its Boeing 787 European expansion with the deployment of the next-generation Dreamliner aircraft on three more routes – Munich, Zurich and Frankfurt.

The Doha-based carrier has started flying the Dreamliner on the Munich route four-times-a-week.
The first-ever commercial flight of a Boeing 787 to Switzerland was launched yesterday with Qatar Airways introducing the Dreamliner on the Zurich route three-times-a-week. Beginning February 1, one of the double daily services to Frankfurt will be served by a Boeing 787. February 1 also signals an increase of 787 frequency on the Munich and Zurich routes to daily.

All three destinations are currently operated with a mixed Airbus fleet. The addition of the German-speaking cities to the already established 787 on one of the five daily London Heathrow flights takes to four the number of European routes featuring the aircraft. Also starting February 1, Qatar Airways will deploy the 787 on all daily flights from Doha to Perth. Qatar Airways will be the first airline to operate Dreamliner flights to and from Australia. Qatar Airways currently operates four 787s, with a further 56 pending delivery.
The airline took delivery of its first Boeing 787 in November.

Qatar Airways chief Akbar al-Baker said: “As an airline we are always striving to enhance passenger experience in the skies by offering improved connectivity with convenient scheduling and an all-round new inflight product, which makes a significant impact on travel decisions. “In addition to introducing new routes, we are also relentlessly focused on improving the passenger experience when travelling with Qatar Airways. “This is why there is so much hype around our Boeing 787 – it offers the travelling public a second-to-none flying experience straight through from comfort, to entertainment to gastronomy.”

Qatar Airways’ Dreamliner aircraft features 254 custom-made seats across its business and economy class cabins, with specially designed interiors, together with a unique inflight entertainment system offering more than 1,000 audio and video fully interactive programming options. The business cabin features 22 seats in a 1–2–1 layout while economy has 232 seats in a 3–3–3 configuration.
