Qatar Airways launches Flights to Amritsar

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Tips.com Latest Travel News Tuesday, 13 October 2009

Qatar Airways’ maiden flight to the northern Indian state of Punjab landed in the holy city of Amritsar on Monday morning just days out from the festive Diwali celebrations.

The airline is operating the route four-times-a-week non-stop from Qatar’s capital city using a two-class Airbus A320, with 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class.

 The colourful city of Amritsar is home to the famous Golden Temple, the holy place of worship for the Sikh religion – a site that draws more visitors annually than India’s renowned Taj Mahal.

Over the next few weeks, the Indian beach holiday destination of Goa will also join the network from October 25, and flights to the Australian city of Melbourne are due to start on December 6.

“These are exciting times for Qatar Airways with three route launches in less than two months, which demonstrates the robust growth we are still experiencing,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. “Amritsar is highly underserved by international airlines so we are pleased to be filling a void with our award-winning service to and from this highly popular destination in north India.”

Qatar Airways currently operates 60 flights a week between Doha and India – daily non-stop services to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Trivandrum, Cochin and Kozhikode. The addition of Goa will take Qatar Airways’ Indian capacity up to 64 flights a week.

“By bringing forward the launch date of Amritsar, we are able to meet the huge demand anticipated in time for the Diwali festive holidays celebrated by devotees of many religions, including Sikhism, during October. Amritsar is very much the spiritual and cultural centre of the Sikh religion,” Al Baker added.
