Qatar Airways, the national carrier for Qatar, has announced Miami (IATA code: MIA) to be its sixth destination to the U.S. beginning June 10, 2014.  The airline will offer non-stop flights from its hub in Doha four-times per week aboard a Boeing 777.

“The U.S. is a growing market for us and the addition of Miami as a destination and our membership in the oneworld Alliance opens up a multitude of better routes with the Middle East, East Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, and Western Australia to and from the east coast of the U.S.,” said Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker.

The city of Miami, located on the southeastern coast of the State of Florida, is a magnet for international banking and multinational corporations especially interested in Latin America. Known for year-around sun, Miami also attracts visitors to its vibrant tourist and entertainment industries.

“Miami International Airport serves nearly 40 million passengers a year, with approximately 20 million traveling internationally,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Department Aviation Director Emilio González. “The addition to Qatar Airways’ destinations in the U.S. will help establish Miami as a significant route to the Middle East and beyond. As Qatar Airways’ sixth destination in the U.S. and its only service to the Southeast U.S. and Florida, we look forward to welcoming this game-changing new route for MIA.”
