With the addition of Gatwick, the airline operates 45 weekly flights landing on four airports, including Edinburgh (three weekly flights), Gatwick (daily flights), Heathrow (three daily flights) and Manchester (two daily flights).
The airline said Qatar Airways Cargo currently runs eight freighter flights per week to London Heathrow and London Stansted in the United Kingdom.
