Qatar Airways has launched another Australian destination with daily non-stop scheduled flights between Doha and Adelaide due to commence on May 2, 2016.

Recently announcing the launch of daily flights to Sydney from March 1, 2016, the airline has embarked on a major expansion in Australia. Moreover, Adelaide will be the first destination where the airways will fly its A350 aircraft.

Qatar Airways will now provide its passengers more hotel and car rental booking options via qatarairways.com website, a facility resulting out of new partnerships with Booking.com and Rentalcars.com.

Passengers will be able to book and pay online for accommodation at over 800.000 properties  in nearly 83,000 destinations, and rent from more than 40,000 car rental locations in 167 countries. This also provides the airline’s Frequent Flyer Programme Privilege Club members the opportunity to earn Qmiles for every hotel room and car rental booking made through the website.

“We look forward to the new partnerships being taken advantage of as our passengers can now benefit from having easy access to a wider selection of places to stay and car rental options from the moment they log on to the Qatar Airways website. This is a great opportunity for us to offer new ancillary products to our worldwide customers, enabling Qatar Airways to take our award-winning service to a new level,” said the airline’s Chief Commercial Officer, Hugh Dunleavy.

The airline also has a new interactive, customer-focused website to ensure easy and intuitive navigation through various modules. Besides updates on current flight status, passengers can also select additional services from various offers Qatar Airways has with hotel and car partners.
