Qatar Airways announced that it has increased the number of flights to Tehran, Islamabad and Muscat from Doha following strong demand on these routes.
The airline will add four flights to Tehran and Muscat each by September 1 and September 16 respectively. Qatar Airways will add two more flights on the Islamabad route, starting on September 3.
With the latest addition, the Gulf carrier would operate up to 18 flights a week to Iran’s capital city from its current 14-flight schedule a week.
Flights to Islamabad will increase from seven to nine per week, the airline said. Qatar Airways began daily services to Pakistan’s capital city last year.
Meanwhile, with 31 weekly flights already servicing the Doha-Muscat route, the increase in passenger demand has led Qatar Airways to add an additional four flights, bringing the total number of flights up to 35 per week to the Omani capital.
“We have witnessed a great increase in passenger demand for both local passengers in each market, as well as international passengers looking to travel to each of these cities, and passengers on these flights can look forward to an enhanced travel experience with Qatar Airways’ five-star service as we welcome them onboard,” said Akbar Al Baker, group chief executive officer, Qatar Airways.
Currently flying to 144 destinations, the airline has also been actively launching new routes.
Qatar Airways recently launched non-stop daily services between Doha and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and in June began daily flights to Haneda International airport in Tokyo and Miami in the US.
