Qatar Airways launches Alexandria flights

Travel News Asia 9 June 2005

Qatar Airways has launched its third destination in Egypt with scheduled flights to the port city of Alexandria.

Alexandria is being served non-stop three-times-a-week from Qatar Airways operational hub of Doha, capital of the State of Qatar. The route is operated with an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in First and 132 in Economy.

The city, one of the oldest in Egypt, becomes Qatar Airways third Egyptian point to be served from Doha, following successful route launches of Cairo and Luxor.

To celebrate the new route, Qatar Airways is offering members of its Privilege Club frequent flyer programme with double Qmiles for the first full month of the flights.

As part of its new Egyptian service, Qatar Airways is also offering a complimentary coach transfer service for passengers between Alexandria and Cairo.

Known as the Pearl of the Mediterranean, Alexandria is Egypts second largest city and main port with an ambience and cultural heritage far different to rest of the country which has more of a Middle East flavour. The city is located around 160 miles from the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria is one of the most notable summer resorts in the Middle East and also home to the ancient relics of the underwater city of Cleopatras Palace.
