Qatar Airways announced further expansion of its rapidly growing international network with five new passenger routes, more cargo services and capacity increases to a number of destinations served direct from the airline’s Doha hub. The expansion program was unveiled on the opening day of ITB Berlin last month.
Iraq, Tanzania, Serbia and Myanmar are featured in the passenger route expansion program over a six-month period starting in May. New freighter services will be introduced to Korea, Pakistan, South Africa and Oman, while frequency of passenger flights will be stepped up to destinations in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Also at ITB Berlin, Qatar Airways unveiled revolutionary new Business and Economy Class seats for its Boeing 787 aircraft with space, comfort and a revamped inflight entertainment system being key features of the airliner that will be inducted into the fleet this summer.
