Qatar Airways has identified the next three European cities to be served by its growing fleet of Boeing 787s, complementing its London Heathrow airport service.

The Qatari flag carrier has already started flying to Munich with the Dreamliner four times weekly, it says in a statement.

It will launch thrice weekly 787 services to Zurich on 14 January, before operating one of its twice daily services to Frankfurt with the Dreamliner from 1 February onwards.

Also on 1 February, the Munich and Zurich 787 flights will increase to daily frequencies, while Perth will further be added to Qatar's 787 network.
