Qatar Airways is preparing for huge capacity increases to Germany next month, with additional flights to Frankfurt and Munich, together with the introduction of services to Stuttgart – its fourth German gateway.

With two new weekly flights to Frankfurt, four additional services to Munich and the introduction of thrice-weekly flights to Stuttgart, the airline’s German frequency rises from 24 to 33 flights a week. Services to Germany’s capital city Berlin remain at daily.

The introduction of flights to the German car manufacturing city of Stuttgart from March 6 signals the first wave of expansion taking place in the country over a three-week period.

Stuttgart, the capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg, is known as the cradle of the automotive industry and is the economic powerhouse of Germany – home to many international companies such as Porsche, Daimler AG and Bosch. The route will be operated in a two-class 110-seat Airbus A319, with eight seats in Business and 102 in Economy.

With the capacity increase on the Frankfurt route, up from 10 flights a week, effective 27 March, selected services will be operated using the airline’s flagship Boeing 777 long-haul aircraft. The aircraft features 42 Business Class seats with a pitch of 78 inches and convert to lie-flat 180 degree beds.

The existing daily Doha – Munich route will continue to be operated with an Airbus A330. The increased capacity to 11 weekly flights each week, takes effect from 9 March 2011.

The Doha – Berlin route remains a daily operation and continues to be operated with an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration.

 “This is by far our largest frequency increase being introduced in the German market within a short time frame,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker. “By adding these extra flights, we are responding to strong demand for additional capacity on the Munich and Frankfurt routes. The strengthened services will foster new business and tourism links with the largest economy in the European Union.”

By 2013, Qatar Airways plans to serve over 120 key business and leisure destinations worldwide with a modern fleet of more than 120 aircraft.
