Qatar Air plans In­dia short-haul ops

New Straits Times - - Business -

Qatar Air­ways Ltd plans to set up a short-haul air­line in In­dia with a fleet of 100 nar­row-body planes, re­new­ing a push to gain a big­ger share of one of the world’s fastest-grow­ing travel mar­kets. The Gulf car­rier will make an ap­pli­ca­tion to the In­dian au­thor­i­ties “soon”, said chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer (CEO) Ak­bar Al Baker at the ITB Ber­lin travel fair on Wed­nes­day. Qatar In­vest­ment Au­thor­ity would be the most suit­able ve­hi­cle for es­tab­lish­ing an air­line in In­dia, said the CEO in a me­dia brief­ing.
