Qatar Airways seeks more Indian routes

 

Qatar Airways has sought more traffic routes and seats from India to serve two-tier cities since it has exhausted all the traffic routes allotted by the Government of India.

Speaking to local media, Akbar-Al-Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Airways, said: “We hope Indian Civil Aviation authorities will give additional access to other Gulf carriers in India and if that happens we would like to operate more flights. We would like to operate more flights out of India to cater to the demands of global traffic.”

“We would love to serve more Indians in their travel needs. I am willing to take any number of seats offered to Qatar Airways. Sky is the limit,” he said.

India’s annual airline passengers, both domestic and international, number only 160 million.

The Center for Aviation predicts that number will nearly triple to 450 million by 2020.
