Qatar Airways celebrates five years in Montreal with new promotion

MONTREAL — It’s been five years since Qatar Airways first arrived in Montreal, and to celebrate the milestone occasion, the airline has announced landmark fares for Canadian travellers.

Flights to Dubai, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Bombay and Delhi are on sale with exciting offers. In addition, the airline is launching a Facebook contest, giving Canadians the chance to win a pair of tickets to the destination of their choice with departure from Montreal.

The new promotion runs from not until July 1, 2016, on all travel from Sept. 18, 2016-June 10, 2017. Travellers can visit qatarairways.com/ca/en/offers/global-promotion.page for more information. Canadians can also enter the contest by visiting Qatar Airways’ Facebook page from July 4-18, 2016.

The highly successful route has been popular with Canadians travelling long haul, conveniently connecting through the airline’s award-winning hub at Hamad International Airport to destinations such as Singapore, Hanoi, Bangkok, Delhi, Doha and Dubai.

The airline operates thrice-weekly flights to Montreal nonstop from its hub in Doha, Qatar, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. It boasts one of the shortest connection times for Canadian travellers to the Far East; the Montreal-Doha journey is 12 hours and with a guaranteed minimum connection time of 45 minutes, the lowest in the industry.

“Qatar Airways takes this opportunity to thank Canadian travellers for their continued support of the airline and for choosing to fly with an airline that puts service excellence at its core,” said Gunter Saurwein, Qatar Airways Vice President of The Americas. “Canadians have embraced Qatar Airways as their carrier of choice for long-haul destinations and we are looking forward to continuing to offer our signature premium service to our loyal travellers for many years to come.”
