The Doha-based airline now operates five flights daily between Kuwait city and Doha taking the frequency up to 35 weekly services on the route.

We have experienced spectacular customer response in the past year in Kuwait and thanks to our excellent connections, our passenger growth crossing through our Doha hub has seen exponential growth annually, said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker. As part of our growth strategy, we will continue to step up frequency on existing routes, which is a strong lever to facilitate development in the business and tourism sectors.

Over the last six months, Qatar Airways has added eight new routes to its burgeoning global network Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary), Brussels (Belgium), Stuttgart (Germany), Aleppo (Syria), Shiraz (Iran), Venice (Italy) and Montreal (Canada).
