Qatar Airways (QR, Doha Hamad International) has leased three slot pairs at London Heathrow from Air Mauritius (MK, Mauritius) as the latter is moving its London operations to London Gatwick.

According to Airport Coordination Ltd records, Qatar Airways secured the Winter 2023/24 season slots for flights from Doha Hamad International on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. It plans to use the B777-300(ER) on these services.

The Mauritian carrier chose to move its operations to Gatwick to provide daily, consistent connectivity to London, replacing the current 5x weekly service to Heathrow. On top of its three owned slots at Heathrow, now due to be used by Qatar Airways, Air Mauritius leases the other two slot pairs it currently uses from Royal Brunei Airlines (BI, Bandar Seri Begawan).

The ch-aviation schedules module shows that Qatar Airways currently operates daily to Gatwick and up to 7x daily to Heathrow.
