The daily direct service will fly between Edinburgh Airport and Doha’s Hamad International Airport and will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which comprises 22 business class and 232 economy class seats.
The daily flight will depart Edinburgh at 2:30pm, arriving in Doha at 11:30pm. The return flight will leave Doha at 7:45am, arriving in Edinburgh at 1pm.
The most popular destinations for those using the Edinburgh-Doha route are in Asia and Australasia, with journey times to Melbourne reduced from approximately 26 hours with two transfers, to 20 hours with one international transfer at Hamad International Airport.
The news of the increased service comes shortly after Qatar Airways announced plans to increase capacity on its London to Doha route.
Qatar Airways UK and Ireland country manager, Richard Oliver, said: "Offering a daily service to Edinburgh is a clear reflection of the popularity of this route since its launch in May last year. The new daily service will allow Qatar Airways to further support and promote Scotland’s leisure and business opportunities to different markets on our airline’s global network."
