Originally planned for next July, Qatar Airways will now launch its flight between Atlanta and Doha a month earlier, on June 1, 2016.
The new launch date was announced last week as the Middle Eastern carrier released the schedule and opened reservations for the flight.
Departures from Atlanta will take off at 8:30 p.m. and arrive in Doha the following day at 5:30 p.m.
Qatar, one of three Middle Eastern carriers embroiled in a spat with Delta Air Lines Inc. and other U.S. airlines, announced plans to start the new flight in May. It will be serviced by a Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.
