VINCI Airports’ network to benefit from new routes with Qatar Airways to Doha

Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport (France) and Siem Reap international airport (Cambodia), both members of VINCI Airports’ network, will soon welcome new direct routes to Doha, the capital city of Qatar and a major intercontinental hub.

The announcement was made today by Qatar Airways at the Kuwait Aviation Show. Both routes will be served with 5 weekly flights with Lyon-Doha starting on 23 June and Siem Reap-Doha on 16 November 2020.

As a new gateway between Qatar’s capital city and France’s second largest metropolis, the Lyon-Doha route will strengthen the attractiveness of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and of the Lyon metropole by making more travel options to Middle East and Asia available to passengers.
The Siem Reap-Doha new route will keep increasing the touristic momentum in the home of the Temples of Angkor.
One the most dynamic capitals in the Middle East, Doha is expected to see air traffic demand grow with the organization of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Nicolas Notebaert, President of VINCI Airports and CEO of VINCI Concessions, declared: “These new routes reflect VINCI Airports’ unique know-how in working with airlines, tourism bodies and local authorities to develop together the right strategy for each region. Also, by permanently developing the outreach of our network, we proudly contribute to increase connections between great cities and regions”.
