Qatar Airways flight QR53 operated by a Boeing B787 Dreamliner departed Hamad International Airport 07:45 and arrived at Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport at 13:15.
Located on the magnificent French Riviera, Nice has a true cosmopolitan vibe with fashionable boutiques and restaurants, alongside magnificent beaches.
The city is also the gateway to the south of France, including popular destinations such as Cannes, St. Tropez, Antibes and the region of Provence, while also being within easy reach of neighbouring Monaco and Northern Italy.
Qatar Airways chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are truly delighted to launch direct service between Doha and Nice.
“The new route is a sign of our continuous commitment to improving the travelling experience for our passengers, both in France and around the world.
“With five weekly flights operating between the two cities, passengers from the south of France can now connect to more than 150 destinations world-wide through Doha’s Hamad International Airport.”
