Default Qatar AIrways Edinburgh-the world

Many of you will know I have family in indonesia, the cheapest option from travel agents is usually QAtar Edinburgh-london-doha-kl-bali, but with 2 children this has been a long route option ive never taken. I have opted for Emirates once from Glasgow via Dubai to Jakarta, but also awkward due to the Jakarta connection.

WELL WELL. There is a new option coming. QATAR edinburgh

Qatar have announced a 5 times weekly flight from Edinburgh .

Qatar will use the dreamliner 787 on the route

That means I can fly from edinburgh-bali with one airline, and hopefully bringing the inlaws over next year.

Qatar have said they will fly 5 times a week, but if they get similar sucess as emieates, I expect the flights to increase. Only problem is I see great potential on the route and there going to need something bigger then the 787

If it proves as successful as the Emirates service from GLA then there's no reason why it shouldn't upgrade to something like a 777 in time. What's the latest in terms of EDI's widebody handling plan ?

I think qatar will be overwhelmed by the popularity they may bring, I think in time the 787 will be replaced by a 777 or maybe 2.

Edinburgh has also attracted a new united edinburgh-chicago & us airways edinburgh-philadelphia route, as well as out current united edinburgh-newark & air canada rouge.

Emirates first looked at edinburgh in scotland but they wanted there own personal stand 24 hours a day.
