Travel News Asia 9 March 2005

Qatar Airways has launched non-stop flights between Doha and Jakarta, Indonesia.

Two of the airlines seven weekly flights between both cities now operate non-stop. The remaining five flights will continue to be served via the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, Indonesia is one of our best-selling markets in south-east Asia and we are pleased to be able to offer non-stop services to Jakarta for the first time, he said.

Non-stop ensures we provide shorter flying times making it more convenient for our passengers. Qatar is home to many Indonesians and there are strong trade links and traffic between both countries, which makes our non-stop flights even more viable.

Mr Al  Baker added that the airline hopes to eventually operate all its Jakarta flights non-stop over time.

Qatar Airways will use an Airbus A330-200 on the route, configured in up to 24 Business Class seats and up to 259 seats in Economy.
