Qatar Airways has launched flights to the beach holiday destination of Goa in India. The new non-stop Doha – Goa route capitalises on the start of the winter holiday season with the destination particularly popular with holidaymakers from across Europe, from where Qatar Airways has numerous connecting flights.

Qatar Airways is using an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in Business and 132 seats in Economy on the route.

Together with the launch of services to the northern Indian city of Amritsar two weeks ago, the Goa route takes Qatar Airways’ capacity across the country to 64 flights a week spread across 10 cities.

The airline now operates daily non-stop services from Doha to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Trivandrum, Cochin and Kozhikode, together with four-flights-a-week to both Amritsar and Goa.

, “With a huge Goan community living and working in the Gulf, our new route has been long awaited and will help facilitate travel for expatriates between our two regions and beyond. Furthermore, being the start of the winter holiday season, Goa will see a huge influx of holidaymakers from across the world, especially Europe,”Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said. “European holidaymakers have traditionally flown with seasonal charter operators to Goa, but with our new scheduled service, we are offering a unique year-round alternative, our award-winning levels of hospitality across our Economy and premium cabins.”

Beginning December 6, Qatar Airways makes its first foray into Australia with scheduled non-stop flights from Doha to Melbourne, followed soon after by services to Sydney. Two other points in Europe will also be launched over the next few months.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of 71 aircraft to 84 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, South Asia, Far East and North America.
