What better way is there to start a brand new year for one of the world’s leading airline companies, than to launch a new route, to a brand new destination?
Hamad International Airport (HIA)
That’s right, folks, Qatar Airways now offers a Doha – Amsterdam route, serviced using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is hailed as one of the latest next-generation aircraft in the airline’s fleet. It offers 254 seats which are configured in two classes. The Business Class has 22 seats which are fully-flat-bed and the Economy Class offers 232 seats. The total journey time between Doha and Amsterdam will be 6 hours and 35 minutes and it will be a direct flight.
Business Class lounge – Hamad International Airport
This new daily route will begin operations on the 16th of June, 2015. With the introduction of this new route, travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam will be easier and more convenient with minimal connection time in the recently opened Hamad International Airport (HIA). HIA is incidentally managed by Qatar Airways and offers one of the world’s best Business Class lounges, boasting a wide range of retail and food and beverage outlets.
Reasons why you shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity to visit beautiful Amsterdam:
One of the cannels in the city of Amsterdam
One of the must-do things when you are in town is to head over to this historical market where you will find various knickknacks that would either tickle your fancy or pique your curiosity. The market is held every Saturday on a delightfully picturesque square.
If you love art, architecture and all things beautiful, you will love the newly renovated Rijksmuseum. Seeing masterpieces by Rembrandt and Vermeer, among others, would simply take your breath away. Allow yourself to soak in the flawless craftsmanship and virtuosity on display. Truly worth a visit (or two)!
3. Cycle all day, every day
Holland as a country is ideal for tourists who love to ride from one destination to the next, as the surface of the country is quite flat. Bikes for hire are plentiful in Amsterdam as it is one of the more popular means of getting around.
4. Because it’s Amsterdam!
Honestly, you should visit Amsterdam simply because it is Amsterdam. The city is full of culture, the people are friendly, fun-loving and no matter what season it is, Amsterdam always looks beautiful. There are events happening almost every month of the year. For the full list of events throughout the year, look at http://www.amsterdam.info/events/ to help plan your trip.
With the introduction of this new route by Qatar Airways, travelling to and from Amsterdam is made easier and affordable.
