Qatar Airways will launch its Orient Express service to Shanghai and Seoul tomorrow, becoming the first Middle Eastern airline to service South Korea.
The inaugural Orient Express service to Shanghai and Seoul will leave as a prelude to the launch of new Qatar Airways services to Singapore, Vienna, Tripoli and Cebu in the southern Philippines, within the next six weeks.
Qatar Airways will use the new A330-200s to service Shanghai and Seoul. The airline recently signed a $5.1 billion order for 34 additional Airbus aircraft in a deal that will increase the fleet to 52 by 2008. — (menareport.com)
