Qatar Airways Cardiff flights strengthen Qatar, UK bonding: UK official

Qatar Airways Cardiff flights strengthen Qatar, UK bonding: UK official:

"Qatar Airways’ launch of direct flights to Cardiff will further cement the already strong relationship between Qatar and the UK, says Alun Cairns, secretary of state for Wales at the UK Government.

“Qatar Airways brings significant opportunities for Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. To have such a flagship carrier with an excellent reputation flying to Cardiff is something, which is very important to us,” Cairns said in an interview with Gulf Times on Monday.

For Wales, he said, Qatar is the second largest export market. Wales exported commodities worth £158mn to Qatar, which includes foodstuff (meat in particular), dairy products and machinery items.
Wales is also home to the South Hook LNG Terminal at Milford Haven, which is co-owned by Qatar Petroleum. Qatar provides for 24% of the UK’s gas supply through this terminal."
