Qatar Airways has announced that starting next summer it will start operating in Barcelona with Airbus A350 and Boeing 787.

On March 26, flight QR145 / 146 will be operated by a Boeing 787-800 and as of May 1 flights QR141 / 142 and QR137 / 138 will also be operated by a Boeing 787-800

Qatar Airways will start operations with its new Airbus A350-900 from August 16

The arrival of the Dreamliner in Barcelona comes almost seven years after the airline first linked Barcelona to Doha with direct flights, in June 2010 with flights operated by Airbus A319LR, carrying 80,000 passengers during its first year of operation in Barcelona.

Both the Qatar Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A350 offer a Wi-Fi connection.

The airline, considered the second best in the world in 2016, connects more than 150 destinations on the five continents and has a fleet of 192 aircraft. It recently made headlines by acquiring a 10-percent stake in Latam Airlines for over $ 600 million. (Latam Airlines makes Qatar’s purchase of 10% of its capital official).
