Qatar Airways’ 787 Dreamliner returns to London Heathrow route

Qatar Airways resumed (16-May-2013) Boeing 787 service between Doha and London Heathrow following the aircraft grounding in Jan-2013. Qatar was the first to launch 787 services to the UK and the return to service means it remains the only airline in the world to operate scheduled 787 services to/from the UK. The first of the carrier’s five 787 returned to service on the Doha-Dubai route on 01-May-2013. The carrier will be gradually phasing in 787 services over the next few weeks on long-haul routes such as Munich, Frankfurt and Zurich. [more - original PR]
