100TH DESTINATION FOR QATAR AIRWAYS

Qatar Airways has announced its 100th destination to Aleppo, in Syria.

The latest route will start four-times-weekly flights from 6 April 2011. Aleppo, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the airline’s second destination in Syria, after Damascus, where the carrier has been flying since 1998. Qatar Airways is the first Gulf-based, international carrier to commence operations to Aleppo.

Tourism to Syria is increasing and the government hopes the new route from Qatar Airways will help enhance trade and boost economic ties with Syria’s trading partners.

A A320 in a two-class configuration featuring 12 seats in first class and up to 132 seats in economy, will serve the three-hour journey from Doha to Aleppo.

Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker says: “Qatar Airways is delighted to commemorate our 100th destination by announcing our latest route to a city in our home region. As one of the oldest cities in the world, Aleppo is of strategic importance, providing links between east and west via Doha for business and leisure purposes.”
