Qatar Airways has a new route from Doha to Adelaide -- which will be the the first commercial Airbus A350 to land on Australian soil, expected to add an estimated $41 million to the local economy.

The launch of the new Adelaide route is part of Qatar Airways' expansion plans in Australia. It launched its new daily flight to Sydney in March this year, and has been flying daily to and from Melbourne since 2009 and Perth since 2012.
