There has been considerable talk on the Birmingham thread regarding the return of services to Doha in 2022(possibly in March), I wonder if there is any possibility of CWL returning to Doha next year? There is an article in the Travel Trade Gazette stating that Qatar wants to triple its visitors to the country.

I expect for Cardiff it might well depend on Australia and New Zealand opening and having no restrictions for travellers.

Qatar Airways might want to be firing on all cylinders again by this time next year when the FIFA World Cup begins there.

Interesting spot on the BHX forum. QR BHX-DOH on sale on google flights. Checked CWL-DOH and it is also on sale from 28th March with direct timings and prices. Although when selecting the site to actually book it's not bookable.
Something to keep an eye on. Have checked dates prior to 28th March and it doesn't come up at all.

It’s apparently something to do with the British Airways Codeshare so changes are likely. According to a well known source.

Something to watch, but I would suspect this is some sort of booking system error. That doesn’t seem like a sufficient lead time for bookings for such a route, in addition to some sort of continued COVID uncertainty. I remain hopeful of some sort of return in the short-to-medium term though.

Makes sense, but hopefully its something positive. Australia border is open for Australian national. I wonder if they are anticipating the border to open to foreign national in a few months time. Fingers crossed! I'm sure there's plenty of pent up travellers looking to make a trip in either direction after the borders being closed for so long.
