Qatar Airways, one of the world’s leading airlines, has announced its plans to expand its network by adding new destinations, resuming flights to old destinations, and increasing flight frequency to existing ones. The airline revealed these exciting updates during the opening day of the ITB Berlin 2023 tourism and travel trade show.
The airline is adding seven new destinations to its network, including Juba, South Sudan and Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of Congo, increasing the Gulf carrier’s Africa network to 30 destinations across 22 countries. Additionally, Qatar Airways is resuming flights to 11 destinations, including Casablanca and Marrakech, Morocco.
The airline will also increase its flight frequency to several popular destinations, including Khartoum, Sudan, and Cairo, Egypt, to provide passengers with more flexible travel options. For example, the frequency of flights between Doha and Khartoum will increase from seven to 14 weekly flights, and flights to Cairo will increase from 21 weekly flights to 28. Mogadishu in Somalia will also see its services increased from three weekly flights to four.
Moreover, passengers traveling to and from Nigeria will benefit from increased frequency as well. Abuja – Port Harcourt flights will increase from two to three weekly flights, while Abuja – Kano will increase from three to four weekly flights. This move will provide passengers traveling within Nigeria, or transiting through Nigeria, with more options to choose from.
These moves are expected to boost the tourism industry in Africa and provide passengers with more choices when planning their travel. Qatar Airways’ expansion plans demonstrate its commitment to connecting people around the world and enhancing the travel experience for its passengers.
The World’s Best Airline adds over 655 weekly flights to summer 2023 schedule compared to 2022.
