Travel Daily - - News -

QATAR Air­ways has overnight an­nounced fur­ther ex­pan­sions of its global network, in­clud­ing new non-stop sea­sonal ser­vices from Doha to San­torini in Greece and Dubrovnik in Croa­tia.

QR’s new Dubrovnik route will de­but on 20 Apr, while San­torini ser­vices will com­mence on 20 May, with both flights to utilise A320 air­craft, of­fer­ing one-stop con­nec­tions from Aus­tralia.

Network growth will also see new Qatar flights to Osaka, Ja­pan, as well as fre­quency in­creases to a host of other des­ti­na­tions across Europe, Africa and Asia.

Qatar Air­ways CEO Ak­bar al Baker said the ca­pac­ity ex­pan­sions, see­ing the ad­di­tion of 66 ad­di­tional weekly flights to 20 ex­ist­ing ports, were due to “strong mar­ket de­mand and the re­cent de­liv­er­ies of more fu­el­ef­fi­cient air­craft.

“We are com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing our pas­sen­gers as many seam­less one-stop con­nec­tion choices as pos­si­ble,” al Baker said.

Other Qatar Air­ways network changes will see flights to Kil­i­man­jaro and Dar Es Salaam in Tan­za­nia de-linked, with non-stop daily ser­vices to each des­ti­na­tion.

He said the ad­di­tion of San­torini, Dubrovnik and Osaka would see the QR pas­sen­ger network grow to 170 des­ti­na­tions, “fur­ther con­sol­i­dat­ing our po­si­tion as one of the world’s most con­nected air­lines”.
