Qatar airways flights from uk


Just some info for anyone thinking of booking a flight to Phuket. I've just seen on Skyscanner that Qatar are now running a flight direct from Doha to Phuket. This avoids gong via Bangkok. The time flight time out from the uk if you gets the night flight down to phuket is now down to 14.5 hrs and only slightly longer back.

I'm notmsuremwhen the flight starts as I put in dates for April next year. There are also so good prices on Skyscanner.

Unfortunately I missed this deal as I have booked with Ethiad.

Good luck

This has been available for a while, we booked in January. We are using this route later this month with the return flight into London on a Dreamliner

I wondered why our return flight from Phuket to Manchester via Doha had been put back two hours and time in Doha increased by one hour until I found that from the 26th October 2014, Qatar will operate non-stop flights Doha to Phuket as opposed to the direct service which operated with a stop at Kuala Lumpur for passengers for that destination to disembark and ones for Phuket to embark. Passengers from Doha to Phuket stayed on the plane and their luggage went straight through.

A direct flight is one that goes from A to B even with a drop down or change of aircraft as long as it is on one ticket and luggage goes straight through. Non-stop from Doha to Phuket from October will put Qatar, Emirates and Etihad on an equal footing for non-stop flights to the Gulf. More choice, more competition, better fares choice. Good news all around.

Also the new routing means a reduction in flight time Phuket to Doha and an increased time in transit which is less stressful than the very short previous transfer on buses to and from the terminal. The new Doha airport uses air bridges. The increased time will also allow us time to spend our Privilege Club frequent flyer miles on Duty Free shopping in the huge DF at Doha as we don't fly frequently enough to amass enough to pay for upgrades or flights and so would lose them.
