Qatar Airways is stepping up frequency on the Doha – Dubai route with three additional daily flights taking capacity up to 11 services a day in a move to offer passengers more choice.
Effective from the 25th August, introduction of the new services will provide improved connection opportunities over the airline’s Doha hub to a raft of destinations across Qatar Airways growing international network.
A mix of morning, afternoon and late night flights to Dubai ensures more travel options. And the additional flights also reinforce the importance Qatar Airways places on the route, the highest frequency of any route operated by the airline with 77 services each week.
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: “Additional capacity on our most popular route demonstrates the level of confidence and commitment we have to a key neighbouring market.
“It is also indicative that as we develop our international network with the introduction of new routes, we want to provide the travelling public greater travel options between Doha and our feeder markets such as Dubai.”
“Apart from inducting new destinations into our global network, integral in our strategy is to continue stepping up frequency on existing routes.”
Qatar Airways currently operates flights to over 100 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America with a modern fleet of 98 aircraft.
Recently named Airline of the Year 2011 in the prestigious annual Skytrax World Airline Awards, Qatar Airways embarked on yet another aggressive 12-month expansion programme at the beginning of the year.
Over the last six months, Qatar Airways has added 10 new routes to its burgeoning global network – Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Brussels (Belgium), Stuttgart (Germany), Aleppo (Syria), Shiraz (Iran), Venice (Italy), Montreal (Canada), Medina (Saudi Arabia) and Kolkata (India).
Qatar Airways will introduce further routes from Doha over the next few months, including the Bulgarian capital Sofia on the 14th September; Norwegian capital Oslo from the 5th October; Entebbe in Uganda from the 2nd November; Azerbaijan capital, Baku and the Georgian capital Tbilisi on the 30th November.
