Qatar Airways, one of the world’s leading airlines, has announced plans to increase its frequency to New York (JFK) starting from October 30, 2023.
This strategic move aims to enhance connectivity for passengers traveling between Doha and key destinations in the United States. With the addition of a third daily flight, Qatar Airways is set to offer even more options for travelers seeking seamless connections and greater convenience.
The new flight, designated as QR703, will depart from Doha at 01:25 am and arrive at JFK at 8:15 am. The return flight, QR706, will leave JFK at 1:20 am and land in Doha at 9:45 pm on the same day. This schedule allows passengers to start their day early in New York and arrive in Doha with ample time for onward connections.
Qatar Airways’ existing daily flights, QR701 and QR705, will continue to operate alongside the new flight. QR701 departs from Doha at 8:15 am and arrives at JFK at 3:015 pm, while QR705 leaves Doha at 3:30 pm and arrives at JFK at 10:20 pm.
Passengers from the United States will benefit from the enhanced connectivity between Qatar Airways and JetBlue via New York. This collaboration opens up a range of connections from cities such as Detroit, Raleigh-Durham, Orlando, and Tampa to popular destinations like Doha, Kathmandu, Bangkok, and Johannesburg. Additionally, members of both Qatar Airways Privilege Club and JetBlue TrueBlue loyalty programs can earn miles on codeshare flights.
Qatar Airways’ partnership with American Airlines also plays a crucial role in expanding connectivity options. American Airlines will launch flights from its Philadelphia hub to Doha on October 28, 2023. This new service will provide passengers with seamless connections to over 90 cities across North America, the Caribbean, Central America, and more than 80 cities across Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.
Furthermore, the codeshare expansion between Alaska Airlines and Qatar Airways allows guests to book flights to even more destinations beyond Doha. This partnership offers increased flexibility and convenience for travelers looking to explore a wider range of options.
