Qatar Airways today announces it will be extending its footprint in the USA by announcing its seventh gateway to Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW). Service will commence on 1 July 2014.

The destination will become Qatar Airways’ second route in Texas; the airline currently operates to Houston non-stop daily from Doha.

A statement said that the airline’s latest announcement reinforces its commitment to the American market and the passengers that fly with Qatar Airways from the United States.

We are pleased to continue enhancing our presence in the United States and are committed to providing passengers with an exceptional travel experience with Qatar Airways, as they travel on their long-haul and short-haul journeys. It is an exciting start to 2014 that we have announced three new American routes, and we look forward to welcoming our new and loyal passengers on board.

We take this opportunity to thank the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport for their support in enabling the commencement of Qatar Airways’ new services. DFW is the world’s fourth busiest airport, and we are pleased to begin operating services there.

The Dallas/Fort Worth route will be operated with the airline’s flagship Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, which features a two-class design with 42 Business Class lie-flat seats in a 2-2-2 configuration.

Qatar Airways’ Business Class product was ranked the ‘World’s Best Business Class’ at the Skytrax World Airline Awards this year in Paris.

Economy Class features 217 seats in a 3-3-3 across configuration – the airline is the leader in Economy Class spacing on the Boeing 777, featuring one less seat per row in Economy Class than its competitors.

Currently flying to four destinations in the United States – New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and Houston – the airline will nearly double its footprint in the country with the addition of three new routes in 2014: Philadelphia (2 April), Miami (10 June) and Dallas/Fort Worth (1 July).

Key destinations for passengers travelling from the United States across the airline’s hub in Doha include routes in India, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

Qatar Airways officially joined the oneworld alliance on 30 October of this year, which will provide passengers a seamless travel experience by having access to over 1000 cities which the alliance network covers.

Passengers travelling from nearby US cities to any of Qatar Airways’ gateways can travel on one of the oneworld alliance partners and enjoy seamless ticketing with baggage checked in all the way through to final destination.
