Times of Oman - - ROUND-UP -

DOHA: Qatar Air­ways an­nounced that it will add four ad­di­tional weekly flights to So­har, its new­est des­ti­na­tion in the Sul­tanate of Oman, from Oc­to­ber 1.

The ad­di­tional fre­quency was added in re­sponse to in­creased pas­sen­ger de­mand and will take the num­ber of weekly flights be­tween Doha and the Sul­tanate of Oman from 52 to 56.

The award-win­ning air­line launched flights to So­har, its third and most re­cent des­ti­na­tion in the Sul­tanate of Oman, last month. So­har, a vi­brant costal city known both for its tra­di­tional Omani cul­ture and beau­ti­ful beaches, of­fers a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties for tourists, in­clud­ing div­ing, snorkelling and kite board­ing, as well as many tra­di­tional mar­kets fea­tur­ing Omani hand­i­crafts.

Ak­bar Al Baker, group chief ex­ec­u­tive - Qatar Air­ways said, “We are de­lighted to see ro­bust de­mand on our Doha-So­har route, es­pe­cially given that we launched the ser­vice only last month. The in­creased fre­quency will al­low both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers from So­har even more flex­i­bil­ity to take ad­van­tage of smooth con­nec­tions to In­dia and South­east Asia via our hub at Ha­mad In­ter­na­tional Air­port.”

An Air­bus A320, fea­tur­ing 12 seats in First Class and 132 seats in Econ­omy Class, with a spa­cious en­vi­ron­ment through­out the en­tire air­craft, will ser­vice the ad­di­tional flights to So­har.
