Qatar Airways increases frequency to Moscow with additional daily flight

QNA

Doha: Qatar Airways announced that it has added additional flights to its Moscow route, bringing the total frequency to 21 flights per week between Doha and the Russian capital. Commencing August 2, the airline will introduce an extra daily flight on the Doha-Moscow route to meet growing demand to Moscow, a destination popular with both business and leisure travellers. The additional frequency will be served by an Airbus A320 aircraft, a QA press release said.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said: "In celebration of going to Moscow together for 14 years, and as part of Qatar Airways' ongoing efforts to expand our presence in Eastern Europe, we are very pleased to offer an additional frequency to this iconic city. Passengers from the Russian capital will have even more flexibility in travelling seamlessly through our Doha Hub, Hamad International Airport, to any of our destinations across our growing network, while travellers from all over the world will now have the opportunity to taste the delights of the Russian capital, as well as experience our renowned world-class service."

The airline, which in August will celebrate 14 years of direct service to Moscow, first began flying to the Russian capital in 2003. The launch of the additional frequency to Moscow comes at a time when Qatar Airways is expediting its expansion plans in Eastern Europe, with service to Skopje, Republic of Macedonia; and Prague, Czech Republic set to commence by the end of August.

The additional frequency will be served by an Airbus A320 aircraft, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class.

Qatar Airways has a host of exciting new destinations planned for the remainder of this year and 2018 including; Canberra, Australia; Chiang Mai, Thailand; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; San Francisco, U.S.; and Santiago, Chile, to name a few. A total of 25 new destination launches will take place throughout 2017-2018.
