Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Qatar Airways Ltd. will open a business and first-class passenger lounge at Heathrow airport this week, the first such facility outside its home market, as it prepares for growth at the London hub.
The carrier will increase Doha-Heathrow flights to five a day from four at present starting March 25, it said in an e- mailed statement today. The new lounge, to feature shower facilities and offer five-star services, will help the airline serve premium travellers on one of its busiest routes, it said.
