Qatar Airways to Increase Budapest Flights

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 6 April 2011

Qatar Airways is increasing capacity on its recently-introduced Doha Budapest route to daily non-stop scheduled services.

Effective 14 September 2011, the route will be upgraded with three additional flights from the current four-flights-a-week. And the service, currently operating via Bucharest, will be de-linked from the Romanian capital.

The latest move is part of an expansion in Eastern Europe where the Doha-based airline recently announced it is boosting online operations by launching four weekly flights to Bulgarias capital city of Sofia, also from 14 September 2011. The Sofia route will be operated via Bucharest.

Qatar Airways first began flights to Hungarys capital city of Budapest in January.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, We have seen very strong inbound and outbound demand for our Hungarian service since our launch just over two months ago. Forecasts look extremely positive, so we couldnt really hold back but to increase capacity pending aircraft availability to daily non-stop from September offering more choice and greater convenience to our valued customers.

Earlier today, Qatar Airways launched its biggest promotion ever with two for the price of one tickets available.
