Qatar Airways increases Africa and India capacity

Qatar Airways has announced increased flight frequencies to Asmara, Eritrea (pictured), and to Dhaka, Bangladesh as it targets expansion in Africa and India.

From September 7, 2015, flights from Doha to Asmara will be increased from four to five times per week.

On December 9, 2015, flights frequencies from Doha to Dhaka, Bangladesh, will be increased substantially from 10 to 14 weekly.

Operated with an Airbus 330-300 offering 30 seats in business and 275 in economy, the additional flights will allow more connection opportunities for customers flying from the UK.

For the Doha-Asmara route, all flights are operated with Airbus A320 aircraft in a two-class configuration with 12 seats in business class and up to 132 seats in economy.

The Asmara expansion comes nine months after the Eritrean capital was first introduced in December 2014, demonstrating the growing demand for this route, said Qatar.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is committed to continually enhancing the five-star experience we offer to all our customers and this further expansion is in direct response to a growing demand on these popular routes.

“We are delighted to offer even more opportunities for our customers across the globe to connect through Doha’s state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport to both Eritrea and Bangladesh, flying on board one of the youngest fleets in the industry.”
