Qatar Airways to Launch Third Daily Flight to Maldives

Qatar Airways has increased flights to the tropical island paradise of Maldives.

The new daily service to Malé Velana International Airport will commence on 28 October 2018.

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.

Qatar 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 flights to 21.

In October 2017, the airline upgraded its double-daily A330 service to Maldives with an A350 aircraft, featuring a total of 283 seats, with 36 Business class seats and 247 in Economy Class.

The third daily flight to Maldives will also provide enhanced connectivity to destinations such as London, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Rome, Frankfurt, Zurich, Moscow, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Nairobi via Qatar Airways’ five-star hub, Hamad International Airport.

The new Doha – Maldives flight, QR676, will depart Doha (DOH) at 05:20 and arrive in Maldives (MLE) at 12:20. QR677, the return flight, is scheduled to depart at 18:30 and land in Doha at 21:40.
