Canberra's getting more international flights, after Qatar Airlines announced it will fly directly to and from the capital in 2017/18.
We're the fifth Aussie destination the airline will fly to, and one of 15 new gateways announced on Tuesday.
There's no word yet on when the Canberra route will get underway, but it looks like Auckland will be the first new gateway starting in February 2017.
Flights between Canberra and Doha will mean Canberrans can fly through to Europe, without having to go through Sydney or Melbourne.
Qatar Airlines has flights to more than 150 international destinations, and has more than 180 planes in its fleet.
