Arrival of Qatar Airways at Lyon, France.

Using a Boeing 787-8, Qatar Airways has landed its first flight to Lyon, France. There will now be four flights each week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. With the addition of this new route, Qatar Airways’ worldwide network of more than 160 destinations grows as well as its footprint in France.

Both Business Class and Economy Class welcomed guests with traditional French fare and a carefully crafted menu of fine French cuisine to honour the voyage. Along with Qatar Airways Vice President of Sales, Europe, Mr. Eric Odone, M. Pierre Grosmaire, the airport’s Director of Commercial and Marketing, greeted the first flight from Doha.

With the airline still operating to Paris and Nice, Lyon is the third location it serves in France. Lyon, which is renowned as France’s gastronomic capital, is dotted with numerous eateries that have earned Michelin stars. Due to its history as the home of cinema, the attractive city also draws fans of films. In a city designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, visitors are welcome to partake in amazing gastronomic adventures and film festivals honouring the silver screen.

A Boeing 787-8 with 232 Economy Class seats and 22 Business Class seats will fly the new direct route to Lyon. The city also acts as an excellent entry point for exploring the nearby Alpine mountain range.

“I am thrilled to announce the launch of Qatar Airways’ inaugural flight to the renowned French city of Lyon,” said Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Airways Group. A long-standing strategic cooperation between Qatar and France benefits both parties in a number of areas, including diplomacy, trade, and tourism. We are pleased to welcome French and European travellers to travel through our hub, Hamad International Airport, for seamless and enthralling journeys to more than 160 global destinations. Our expanding network in France is a monument to our successful cooperation.

Tanguy Bertolus, the chairman of the Aéroports de Lyon management board, stated: “This new international destination from Lyon highlights the expertise of VINCI Airports in the development of new routes, as well as the calibre of its relationships with other airlines. By providing more alternatives to and from the Middle East and Asia, particularly in Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand, this connection between the capital of Qatar and Lyon will increase the attraction of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and the Lyon metropolitan area.
