The airline is also offering guaranteed flexibility on travel completed by 30 September 2022, including unlimited date changes and ticket refunds, so travellers can plan ahead knowing they are covered.

Passengers on the Adelaide to Auckland route can also experience Qatar Airways’ ground-breaking Business Class experience, Qsuite, which has been recognised as the ‘World’s Best Business Class’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Onboard Catering’ and ‘Best Business Class Seat’ by the 2021 Skytrax World Airline Awards. The Qsuite seat layout is a 1-2-1 configuration, providing passengers with the most spacious, fully private, comfortable and socially distanced Business Class product in the sky.

Qatar Airways’ new Adelaide to Auckland route was launched in April, operated by a B777-300ER, as an extension of the existing service between Doha and Adelaide.

Qatar Airways Vice President of Sales for Southeast Asia, Southwest Pacific & Indian Subcontinent, Jared Lee said: “The Australia and New Zealand region continues to be an area of strong growth for Qatar Airways, and the Adelaide to Auckland service will support the continuing growth of travel between the cities.”

“Not only do we continue to rebuild our network after the pandemic, but we are actively expanding it as travel restrictions ease. This is the latest in a series of enhancements to our Australian network this year, and we will no doubt continue to make upgrades as we expand our services further.”

A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ in the latest World Airline Awards, managed by the international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. The airline’s hub, HIA, was recently recognised as the ‘Best Airport in the World 2021’, ranking at number one in the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2021.
