Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Tuesday, 28 July 2009

Following the recent decision to add three flights on the Doha - Paris route to make it a double daily operation from October, Qatar Airways is adding capacity to Madrid, Athens and Stockholm -  representing a near 40% increase in frequency across the four cities.

The Spanish capital Madrid will see an increase in the number of flights from the current four-a-week to daily, effective 2 December 2009, which marks the fourth anniversary of Qatar Airways launch on the route.

The Athens route, launched in June 2005, is currently being served daily. Capacity is to rise over a five-month period beginning in October, with an eventual increase to double daily services from March 2010.

With a huge Greek community living and working in Australia, the additional Athens flights will help facilitate travel between the two countries, via Qatar.

Stockholm will see its first frequency increase since flights to the Swedish capital were launched in November 2007.

The addition of one extra weekly service every Thursday, beginning 25 October 2009, follows demand and the availability of aircraft.

Also beginning 25 October 2009, the start of the Northern Winter schedules, the Paris route will see capacity rise from 11 to 14 flights a week offering passengers the option of a double daily service for the first time.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, Europe is one of our most important regions representing around 20% of our global coverage. With almost 40% increase in frequency across four European capital cities from the start of the winter flying season in October, Qatar Airways is opening up greater opportunities to travel on business or leisure.
