The daily route will relaunch in June, in time for summer travel

Qatar Airways has announced that it will resume flights to London Gatwick Airport on 5 June 2022.

The resumption of the daily London Gatwick service complements recently launched flights to Doha from Gatwick by Qatar Airways’ partner British Airways, meaning the airlines can now jointly offer more options between London and Doha and beyond with passengers earning Avios frequent flyer points as they go.
