Restarts Venice Flights

Qatar Airways has relaunched its flight service between Doha and Venice. This route was paused four years ago due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Now, flights leave Doha at 9 a.m. daily and land at Venice Marco Polo Airport at 2:20 p.m. The return flights depart from Venice at 4:50 p.m. and arrive in Qatar at 11:10 p.m.

With these flights, Travel and Tour World stated that Qatar Airways now flies to three cities in Italy. Besides Venice, it continues to serve Milan and Rome. 

This growth shows the airline's commitment to increasing its network and giving travelers more options. Qatar Airways currently reaches over 170 destinations across the globe, maintaining its status as a major global carrier.

The return of the Doha-Venice route is a big boost for Venice Marco Polo Airport's connections to long-haul destinations. It is expected to improve travel to the Far East and Southeast Asia, providing easier access to these regions for passengers.

The resumed service is a significant step in rebuilding international travel connections and strengthens ties between important global locations. 

The effort highlights Qatar Airways' ongoing dedication to broadening its service and enhancing travel opportunities for its customers.
