Qatar Airways to resume flights… just in time for flying cars?
After a COVID-induced hibernation, Qatar Airways has announced the resumption of its daily non-stop service between Tokyo International Airport (“Haneda”) and Hamad International Airport starting on 1 June 2023. What perfect timing, with flying cars just around the corner!
The airline will operate its state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft, equipped with Qsuite Business Class seats that actually have beds! Why sleep in your own home when you can snore away comfortably at 37,000 feet?
In addition to an existing Narita-Doha service, this new route from Haneda airport means the frequency of flights from greater Tokyo area doubles from seven to fourteen each week. This increase couldn’t come soon enough – who wouldn’t want more optionsSponsored Product while traveling during a global pandemic? Plus let’s face it–we all yearn for those delicious airplane snacks we’ve been deprived of over these last two years.
The best news is that travelers using Qatar Airways out of Tokyo can enjoy seamless connections to over 160 destinations globally. Yes – I said “globally.” That includes Africa (the continent), Eurpore (how they spell Europe), Middle East and many other enticing touristic locations across six vibrant continents.
No biggie really…just literally everywhere except Antarctica because penguins don’t fly yet… or do they?
And let’s not forget the lovely airport in Doha, Hamad International Airport, which was ranked as “Best Airport in the Middle East” for nine years running. I mean if any airport can prepare you for your next destination better than this one, please do mention it because we are definitely missing out.
A Word from Qatar’s CEO
The announcement comes on the heels of a vast network expansion that will see an extra 655 flights each week starting in 2023 compared to the year prior. Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, says “Japan remains a significant market for Qatar Airways and its passengers.”
New Route with QSuite Business Class Seats
The airline’s regional manager for Japan and Korea, Shinji Miyamoto is also thrilled about resuming service out of Haneda: “We are very pleased that Japanese customers will be able to experience Qatar Airways’ award-winning business class, Qsuite which is being introduced first ever In Japan.”

You’re Either First Class or You’re Not Remotely Close!
We give kudos to whoever came up with this tagline because flying really cannot get any more convenient than this! Do you want YOUR own private room at 37k feet? Well there’s always QSuite Business Class Seats…after all, who needs actual privacy when flying together with family and friends? (This line is at least 75% sarcastic)
No more cramped spaces that make you feel like sardines in a tin can…unless of course they come out with ‘The Great Sardine Experience!’
