Qatar Airways switches to B777 on Cape Town run

Qatar Airways has begun operating freight-friendly Boeing 777 aircraft on the Doha – Cape Town service, switching from previously used B787 ‘Dreamliner’ equipment.
The Doha-based carrier has been flying to Cape Town from its Doha hub since 2005. Initially served as part of a four times a week route that also involved Johannesburg, Qatar Airways de-linked Cape Town from Johannesburg and started operating a direct five times a week service to the city from November 2014.
The airline subsequently started operating a full, non-stop daily service to Cape Town in October last year.
