Qatar Airways Qatar Airways, starting in June, will operate daily flights between Doha and São Paulo. The announcement was made by the airline marketing vice president, Taco Nieuwenhuijsen, to the minister of Tourism of Brazil, Luiz Barretto, and to Brazilian Tourism Institute (Embratur) president Jeanine Pires.

They were both in Berlin, Germany, participating in the ITB, Berlin’s international travel fair.
