Qatar Airways is to increase flights to Bucharest and Sofia.

The Doha-based airline, which currently operates the Bucharest-Sofia linked route five times a week, will add two additional frequencies commencing 1 October 2014, bringing the number of flights to seven per week.

With the addition of the two new frequencies, the route, which will be serviced by Airbus A320 aircraft will offer an additional 48 Business Class and 360 Economy Class seats per week, with an overall increase of 408 seats.

The increase in frequency on the linked Bucharest-Sofia route will provide passengers in Romania and Bulgaria with more options when travelling to any one of the more than 140 destinations in Qatar Airways global network.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, Bucharest-Sofia has been an extremely popular route for those travelling to and from Europe. The additional two frequencies will help meet the demand the airline has for this particular route. Europe in particular, is an extremely popular destination for a number of our passengers, especially those in East Asia and we are pleased to be able to continue to offer more options to those looking to travel with us and enjoy our five-star service.

Qatar Airways established its footprint in the Eastern European region with Bucharest, the Romanian capital being introduced to its network in January 2011. In September, the same year, Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria was linked onto the route as Qatar Airways continued its European expansion. Both destinations offer numerous historical attractions and cultural events to the millions of tourists that visit each year.

Popular destinations to and from Bucharest and Sofia include Tokyo, Shanghai, Seoul, Dubai, Melbourne, Singapore, Manila, Bangkok, Maldives, Nairobi, and Delhi.
