Qatar Airways Now Flies to Lisbon Portugal

For Fine Travel clients planning a comprehensive UK / Europe itinerary, the new Qatar Airways service between Doha and Lisbon is a welcome addition to the popular airline's network.

In our Fine Travel blog on the benefits of booking an Open Jaw UK / Europe airfare we discussed the savings to be made (in terms of time and money) by flying into one UK / Europe city and home from another.  So whenever an airline such as Qatar Airways announces a new route it adds to the opportunity to refine a European itinerary.

The new daily direct services to Lisbon is operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class. Qatar Airways passengers travelling in Business Class can relax in one of the most comfortable, fully lie-flat beds in the sky as well as enjoying a five-star food and beverage service served ‘dine on demand’.

As a Cruise Holiday destination, many of the leading cruise lines that Fine Travel Consultants work with (including Seabourn, Viking Ocean Cruises, Silversea Cruises, Regent Seven Seas and more) offer cruise itineraries that start or finish in Lisbon. At the time of writing this blog there are 109 cruise itineraries starting in Lisbon and 105 cruise itineraries finishing in Lisbon.

For Fine Travel clients looking for a land based experience (or to combine a cruise with a land tour), a Group Tour that starts or finishes in Lisbon can also be arranged.

The release of the Business Class Qsuite between Auckland and Doha (a product more akin to a First Class cabin than Business Class) has continued Qatar Airways popularity with Fine Travel client flying Business Class to the UK / Europe.
