Qatar Airways will further expand its international operations next year with the launch of flights from its Doha hub to three diverse cities Tokyo, Bengaluru and Ankara. The new routes will join Qatar Airways growing international network over an eight-week period beginning in February 2010.

Indias largest technology hub of Bengaluru, formerly known as Bangalore, will be the first of the three launches, with daily flights beginning February. The addition of Bengaluru in the southern state of Karnataka will take Qatar Airways Indian capacity up to 71 flights a week spread across 11 cities.

During April, the Turkish capital Ankara will be added to Qatar Airways burgeoning route network, further strengthening the airlines position in Turkey where it already operates daily flights to Istanbul.

At the end of April, the Japanese capital Tokyo will be served daily via Osaka, representing a significant increase in capacity for the Japanese market. Seoul, which is currently served via Osaka will become a non-stop direct service from the end of March.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, Tokyo, Bengaluru and Ankara are examples of our confidence in deploying aircraft to exciting destinations and provide our passengers around the world with great connections over our Doha hub. The fact that we are launching three new routes within the space of eight weeks is indicative of how serious we are in being a key player in the global airline industry despite the current economic conditions.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of 75 aircraft to 85 diverse business and leisure cities across Europe, Middle East, Africa, South Asia, Far East, North America and Australasia with plans to top 120 destinations worldwide by 2013.
