Dubai airline says over 500,000 have used services between Dubai and Doha so far this year
Emirates airline has announced plans to boost its services to Doha with two additional daily flights, taking the airline’s total operations to nine daily services, from October 30.
The Dubai-based airline currently serves Doha with seven daily flights, and the addition of the two services will grow the airline’s presence in Qatar and take the total number of weekly Emirates flights to 63.
So far in 2016, over half a million passengers have travelled on the Dubai-Doha service and in the first three months of 2016, there was a 26 percent spike in visitor volumes to Dubai from Qatar over the previous year.
The timings of the new Doha services have also been scheduled to facilitate shorter connection times to popular destinations in Southeast Asia such as Singapore, Cebu and Clark, it added in a statement.
The new flights also introduce convenient connections to popular European destinations such as Lisbon and Larnaca, Cape Town in Africa and Los Angeles in the US, increasing access to key business and leisure centres both east and westbound.
