Here's How You Can Travel to the Cultural Capital of Russia

St. Petersburg is home to incredible art collections, the astounding Hermitage Museum, and historic buildings. And snaked with splendid canals and having a rich imperial history, the cultural capital of Russia is truly an unmissable destination for pleasure seekers and business travelers alike.

With that in mind, Qatar Airways is pleased to fly passengers to St. Petersburg beginning December 19, 2017. The new daily service will operate between Doha and St. Petersburg with an Airbus A320, which offers 12 flatbed seats in business class and 120 seats in economy class.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, states: "St. Petersburg is a very welcome addition to the Qatar Airways route map, because of its incredible imperial history as the former Russian capital."

"This new route demonstrates our determination to continue expanding with scores of exciting new destinations to attract passengers from all over the world, and to welcome them aboard to enjoy the unrivaled five-star customer experience from Qatar Airways."

Qatar Airways first started flying to Russia in 2004, and now, 13 years later, the airline offers three daily flights between Doha and Moscow's Domodedovo International Airport (DME). It also has exciting new destinations planned for the remainder of this year and in 2018, including Canberra, Australia; Chiang Mai, Thailand; and Cardiff, U.K.
