031Qatar Airways said it would move to the new Beijing Daxing International Airport this summer, and is actively expanding flights to more Chinese cities, fueled by strong travel demand.

Starting January, the national carrier of Qatar started codeshare cooperation with China Southern Airlines on flights between Guangzhou and Doha, as well as Beijing and Doha.

In December 2018, Qatar Airways acquired a 5 percent stake of Guangzhou-based State-owned China Southern. Qatar Airways said it hopes to have deeper cooperation with China Southern, which will gradually move all of its flights to Daxing airport.

032Currently, Qatar Airways operates 45 weekly flights from its capital Doha to seven cities in China — its third-largest market behind India and the United States. The cities are Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Chongqing, Chengdu and Hong Kong.
