Although all flights will route via Doha, Qatar Airways is one of the airlines really pushing to bring point to point travel, taking passengers precisely where they want to go in one connection or less. They’re not just taking passengers to hub cities like Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok, they’re launching direct routes to Langkawi, Chiang Mai, and now – Osaka. Today, Qatar Airways announced the latest addition to its route network, and for any foodies hoping to explore Japan, it’s brilliant news…

Doha – Osaka From April 6th, 2020

Qatar Airways will launch service between Doha, Qatar and Osaka, Japan on April 6th, 2020. The Doha-Osaka flight will be operated by an Airbus A350-900, one of the best new planes in the sky, and will switch from 5x weekly to daily starting June 23rd, 2020. The schedule works as follows…

Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday (Tuesday and Thursday added from 23 June 2020)

QR802 Doha-Osaka : Departs DOH 02:10hrs, Arrives KIX 17:50hrs

QR803 Osaka-Doha: Departs KIX 23:30hrs, Arrives DOH 04:50hrs

Qatar presently flies into both Tokyo Narita and Haneda airports, and this marks the third access point in Japan. All Tokyo Haneda flights feature Qatar Airways Qsuites business class, operated by the Airbus A350-1000.

Osaka – The Place You Need To Go

The “open jaw” has long been a favourite travel trick for many, where you never back track, simply flying into one city and out of another. Qatar Airways new Osaka route would potentially allow for passengers to fly into Osaka, or Tokyo, and fly out of the other, simply connecting the dots with a separate internal flight or bullet train ride. Osaka is regarded as the food capital of Japan and is the second largest metropolitan city, with incredible castles and markets all around.

Perfect Time For The Olympics

If you’re going to launch a new route, with seats you’d obviously like to fill, doing so ahead of one of the most anticipated Olympics games certainly isn’t a bad way to start. There just aren’t many ways to get to Osaka with one stop unless you’re in a major international gateway presently served by a Japanese airline, so this gives many more regional departure points one stop access to Osaka via Doha. As always, you can use miles from Qatar, British Airways, American, Cathay Pacific and other great currencies to book, in addition to good ole’ cash.
