Qatar Airways has increased flights to the tropical island paradise
The new daily service to
Malé Velana International Airport will commence on 28 October
Located in the Indian Ocean, and just a five-hour
flight from Doha, the picturesque islands are renowned for their
immaculate white sandy beaches, magnificent diving spots and
well-preserved natural wonders, all of which make it one of the
world’s most exotic and tranquil leisure destinations.
Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr.
Akbar Al Baker,
said, “We are delighted to announce the addition of a third daily
flight between Doha and the Maldives, one of our most popular
holiday destinations. We believe that a luxurious travel
experience isn’t just about the destination, but about the whole
journey itself. The additional daily frequency between Doha and
the Maldives showcases our commitment to expanding our global
route network, in order to offer our passengers enhanced choice
and flexibility when planning a holiday getaway. We are pleased
that we can continue in our efforts to provide our passengers with even more opportunity to experience this captivating destination.”
Qatar Airways currently operates 14 flights per week from Doha to
Maldives. The additional service will be operated by both the
A330-300 and A320-200 aircraft, and will take the number of weekly

double-daily A330 service to Maldives with an A350 aircraft,
featuring a total of 283 seats, with 36 Business class seats and
