The Qatar Airways started its first daily service from Doha to Sydney last week. It means that more international visitors will now have easy access to New South Wales’ first-class restaurants, spectacular beaches, and special events and festivals.
Stuart Ayres, the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events in NSW, welcomed the newly launched flight of Qatar Airways. He saw it as an excellent opportunity to promote the various wonderful tourist spots and popular events and festivals of the State to the passengers of one of the fastest growing airlines in the world.

In a press release from Destination NSW, Mr Ayres said that the newly launched flight would be a great addition in increasing the aviation capacity from the Middle East. He also saw it increasing the connectivity to Sydney and Regional NSW for the European and British travellers flying to Sydney via Doha.
Mr Ayres said that more than 51,000 visitors from the Middle East visited NSW by December 2015 and spent $192 billion in the State. According to him, the NSW Government is committed to promote the tourism of Sydney and the surrounding NSW regions through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW by closely working with the aviation industry.
Sandra Chipchase, the Chief Executive Officer of Destination NSW, saw the inclusion of Qatar Airways to the State’s flying itinerary as another major achievement for NSW. She also hoped that the new flights would bring a strong positive impact on the NSW tourism industry.

Kerrie Mather, the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Sydney Airport, thought that the new flights would give passengers more choices and the services of a quality airline.
Qatar Airways’ newly launched daily flights between Doha and Sydney will be operated via a 335-seat Boeing 777-300.
