On June 6, Qatar Airways will resume flights between Doha and the capital of Portugal, Lisbon.

From June 6, oneworld member Qatar Airways will connect its Doha hub with Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, four times a week. This marks Qatar Airways’ return to Lisbon after the route fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic. CCO Thierry Antinori is correspondingly pleased about the resumption of the flight connection:

“As we continue to expand in the European market, we celebrate the resumption of our flights to the beautiful city of Lisbon. Qatar Airways passengers can now enjoy very efficient ways to travel between Qatar and Portugal, as well as connect between Portugal and Asia, Africa, Middle East and the Indian subcontinent, through the Best Airport in Middle East which offers customers the best duty free and best lounges in the region.”

The Boeing 787-8 will be used, which unfortunately is not equipped with the Qatar Airways Qsuite. There are a total of 22 Business Class seats on board, all of which can be converted into a fully flat bed. Each seat has its own access to the aisle.

Conclusion on the resumption of flights to Lisbon

Qatar Airways is returning to Lisbon. This means that Qatar Airways is flying to an exciting city and a region that is very popular with tourists, with a view of the Algarve, which is not too far from Lisbon. It is regrettable that Qatar Airways has not been flying to the Portuguese capital for longer. Lisbon will not be too exciting for Qatar Airways as a transport destination, but only as a tourist destination. Due to Lisbon’s geographical location, TAP Air Portugal offers a number of flight connections to North and South America – the relatively short flight time makes TAP an almost alternative-free option. At least on flights to Asia and Australia, Qatar Airways is an option for travelers from Lisbon, although Emirates and Etihad Airways also fly to Lisbon.
