QATAR AIRWAYS TO INCREASE CAPACITY FROM MARCH

Qatar Airways has announced it is increasing capacity across its global network from March 1. The growth in passenger demand and an increase in new aircraft means the airline can pursue an aggressive growth strategy.

Under the planned increases, three additional weekly flights to Kuala Lumpur will be added; two extra services will fly to Dar Es Salaam, while the daily service to Bangalore will be upgraded from an A320 aircraft to an A330. There will be three extra flights to Muscat, which rises capacity to 24 flights each week.

Most of the expansion will be focused in Europe, however. Qatar Airways has new route launches to Bucharest, Budapest, Brussels and Stuttgart, and it has earmarked increases to and from existing destinations in its network. It will fly 16 weekly services to Paris and introduce daily flights to Geneva.

”These capacity increases yet again demonstrate Qatar Airways’ commitment to building our route profiles in line with our strategy to offer passengers more travel options,” says Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker. “With an average of more than one new aircraft being introduced into the fleet every month, Qatar Airways is looking to deploy the new capacity on existing routes while, at the same time launch new routes to join our ever-growing international network.

“From Europe and Africa to the Middle East and Asia, our network will see more capacity, improved schedules and, more importantly, more choice for our large passenger base and new clientele. There will be further route expansion announcements over the next few weeks.”
