Qatar Airways will increase daily frequencies to the Scandinavian capitals of Stockholm and Oslo, alongside Italian cities Milan and Rome.
Due to an increase in demand to European destinations, flights to Rome, Milan and Stockholm will increase to 17 per week from Doha’s Hamad International Airport, and flights to Oslo will increase to 10 frequencies per week.
“Qatar Airways continues to expedite its ambitious expansion plans and demonstrate strong growth across Europe and Russia,” Qatar Airways Group chief executive, His Excellency, Mr. Akbar Al Baker says.
“These additional frequencies will provide our passengers with an array of convenient travel options when travelling to Doha or further afield on our global network.”
The airline has also announced that double daily flights to Russian capital Moscow will increase to three times daily from 14 December, just five days before Qatar Airways’ inaugural daily flight to the Russian city of St. Petersburg.
In addition to frequency increases to Moscow, Stockholm, Oslo, Rome and Milan, the award-winning airline has announced additional daily non-stop flights to Kyiv, Prague, Warsaw and Helsinki.
Qatar Airways has received many accolades this year, most notably being named ‘Airline of the Year’ by the 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards, making it their fourth time to win the award.
