Qatar Airways has announced they will be adding new flight paths and increasing the frequency for key European destinations in 2020 just in time for the annual summer rush (June- August).
The world-class airline has confirmed that from 18 May, they will be operating new flights to Dubrovnik, Croatia as well as starting their seasonal flights to Santorini, Greece.
Currently, Qatar’s only Croatian route from Doha is to the capital city of Zagreb. The new seasonal flights to Dubrovnik will be operated by an Airbus A320. Initially, it will run three times a week before expanding to five times a week from 15 June to 4 October to meet market demand.
The addition of these routes will expand the Qatar Airways network to over 170 passenger destinations, further establishing them as one of the world’s most connected airlines.
Plus, increased frequency to European destinations
As well as the new routes, Qatar will also be increasing the frequency of flights to some of its popular European offerings. This includes flights to Spain, Ireland, England, and Portugal.
Flights from Doha to Malaga, Spain, will increase from five times per week to seven flights per week during the period of July and August. Doha to Dublin flights will be increasing from 11 times a week to 14 times a week between July and October. London-Gatwick will expand from 14 flights per week to 18 flights per week in April, June and October. Lastly, the Doha to Lisbon route, which was only launched last year, will increase from seven flights per week to 13 flights per week from June 2020 – almost doubling.
“This announcement is a testament to the popularity of our European offerings,” said Adam Radwanski, Qatar Airways’ senior manager for Australasia.
“Qatar Airways is one of the very few airlines that can offer Australian customers convenient one-stop flights to over 55 European destinations.
The additional flights will provide more options for Aussie travellers, making it easier than ever to reach any of our European destinations,” he added.
