Indian low-cost carrier IndiGo has started operations to the Qatari city of Doha, its fourth GCC destination.

The carrier has launched daily direct flights to Doha from both Delhi and Mumbai.

The first flight, 6E – 1701 from Delhi to Doha touched down at Doha’s Hamad International Airport (HIA) on May 5. The route was operated on an Airbus A320 aircraft.

With the addition of IndiGo flights, HIA now has a total of 25 weekly flights operating to Mumbai and 35 weekly flights operating to Delhi.

Sanjay Kumar, chief commercial officer, IndiGo said: “Being an economic and cultural hub of Qatar, Doha attracts a lot of business and leisure tourists.

“[The new flights] not only helps us cater to the growing tourist potential of the city, but also provides an affordable travel option to the Indian diaspora workforce who can now look forward to visiting their homes more frequently.”

IndiGo also plans to operate direct flights to Doha from Chennai and Kozhikode from July 20, 2017.

“Adding Doha on our network reinforces our commitment towards the Middle-East region,” said Kumar.

“IndiGo has established itself as a preferred carrier on India -Middle-East routes with increased capacities and compelling fares on Sharjah, Muscat and Dubai sectors over the years.”

IndiGo began flights to Sharjah earlier this year. It has also expanded services to Muscat and Dubai.
