In partnership with:

Qatar Airways will add a route to the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, as part of its international expansion plan. The information is conveyed by economy newspaper Jornal de Negócios. "Yes, we plan to fly to Portugal, sometime next year," told the company's CEO, Akbar Al Baker, to the newspaper. The objective is to operate "directly from Doha to Lisbon with a Boeing 787." The executive also stressed that "this is not a route to connect to South America, because that is an area already covered by our members of Oneworld". Currently, Qatar Airways network has 140 connections.

In fact, Qatar Airways has been leading some recruitment actions in Portugal.

This should be the second direct link between Lisbon and the Middle East, once that Emirates came to Portugal on July 9th 2012. In the first year alone, the company carried 147,000 passengers between Lisbon and Dubai. In 2015, it will come Qatar’s airline company’s turn.
