Qatar Airways set to double capacity on Berlin route

Gulf carrier reportedly set to introduce bigger aircraft to meet rising demand for German travel

Qatar Airways is reportedly planning to double the number of seats it offers on its Doha to Berlin route later this year.

The Gulf carrier, which improved services on other German routes in 2011, is set to upgrade to a bigger aircraft from December 1.

According to a report by the Business Traveller website, Qatar Airways, which has flown to Berlin for eight years, will replace the 144-seat A320 for a 272-seat A330 to significantly increase capacity.

The A330 is equipped with 24 business and 248 economy seats, whereas the A320 provides seating for just 12 passengers in business and 144 in economy class.

In 2011, Qatar Airways increased the number of flights between Doha and Munich from daily to 11 flights a week.

Its Frankfurt route was also upgraded from 10 to 13 flights a week.

Qatar Airways also began flights to Stuttgart as the total number of flights between Qatar and Germany is set to rise from 24 to 34 flights a week.
