Airline says it will add additional three daily flights from August 25, taking total flights to 11 per day
Qatar Airways is stepping up frequency on its Doha to Dubai route with three additional daily flights from August 25, the airline said on Monday.
The extra flights will take total capacity up to 11 services a day.
A mix of morning, afternoon and late night flights to Dubai will give more travel options, the carrier said in a statement.
Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: "Additional capacity on our most popular route demonstrates the level of confidence and commitment we have to a key neighbouring market."
Al Baker added: "It is also indicative that as we develop our international network with the introduction of new routes, we want to provide the travelling public greater travel options between Doha and our feeder markets such as Dubai."
Qatar Airways currently operates flights to over 100 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
Recently named Airline of the Year 2011 in the prestigious annual Skytrax World Airline Awards, Qatar Airways has added 10 new routes to its global network so far this year.
The airline will add further routes from Doha over the next few months, including the Bulgarian capital Sofia on September 14; Norwegian capital Oslo from October 5; Entebbe in Uganda from November 2; Azerbaijan capital, Baku on November 30; and the Georgian capital Tbilisi, also on November 30.
