Qatar Airways will add Seattle to its route network beginning March 15.
The Gulf carrier also plans to implement a codeshare agreement with Seattle-based Alaska Airlines in March, coinciding with the Seattle route launch and Alaska's joining of the Oneworld alliance.
Qatar will fly from its Doha hub to the Emerald City four times weekly using a two-class Airbus A350-900.
Seattle will be the second new U.S. destination Qatar has added during the Covid-19 pandemic, joining San Francisco, where service will launch Dec. 15. That's also the date that Qatar will begin a frequent-flyer partnership with Alaska.
Qatar also flies to Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia and Washington. Atlanta is the only one of Qatar's pre-pandemic U.S. destinations that it is not currently serving.
In total, the airline plans to be flying 59 weekly U.S. frequencies to 11 U.S. destinations with the Seattle launch.
