Canberra has been named as one of eight new destinations Qatar Airways will add to its fast-growing network.
The announcement was made during a media event in Casablanca on Monday.
Qatar indicated flights to Canberra would begin some time in the 2017/18 timeframe, without providing any further details, such as frequencies and operating aircraft type.
The Australian capital would be Qatar’s fifth destination in this country.
It would also be Canberra’s second international service, following Singapore Airlines’ Capital Express Singapore-Canberra-Wellington flights that started in September.
