Qatar Airways to Launch Non-Stop Boeing 787 Dreamliner Flights to Maputo, Mozambique

Qatar Airways will upgrade its three times weekly flights between Doha and Maputo, Mozambique, to a non-stop Boeing 787 Dreamliner service effective 27 March 2016.

The airline currently serves the Doha – Maputo route three times a week via South Africa’s largest city Johannesburg.

With the start of the new non-stop service to Maputo International Airport, passengers from Europe, the Americas, Middle East and Asia Pacific can now take advantage of a seamless one-stop connection to Mozambique’s capital city via Doha, saving approximately five hours per direction from prior itineraries.

Travellers from Mozambique will have more convenient options to more than 150 destinations around the world, including popular destinations like Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, Karachi, Mumbai, Delhi and Dubai.

Qatar Airways launched scheduled flights in October 2012 to Maputo, Mozambique's cultural, political and commercial centre. The airline will de-link flights from Johannesburg, Qatar Airways’ Maputo route.

 The dedicated non-stop service between Qatar and Mozambique will be operated on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “Three years ago, Qatar Airways began flights to Maputo via Johannesburg, and over that time we have seen a consistent increase in demand resulting in today’s announcement, making our Maputo-Doha flights non-stop. We are very pleased that we will now be able to provide leisure and business passengers shorter, more convenient flights when travelling between Doha and Maputo.”
