Qatar Airways goes on safari

Qatar Airways will kick off the New Year by lunching a direct flight to the Tanzanian capital, Dar Es Salaam.

Qatar Airways will kick off the New Year by lunching a direct flight to the Tanzanian capital, Dar Es Salaam.

The Qatari national carrier will fly four times a week from Doha, as of January 7, to serve the growing leisure and business market in Tanzania.

“Qatar Airways always looks at operating routes which are strategically important for either the business or leisure market – or both,” said Akbar Al Baker, CEO, Qatar Airways.

The route will be operated with an Airbus A319 aircraft in a two-class configuration of eight seats in business class and 102 seats in economy.

Leisure travellers visit Tanzania for wildlife safaris in the Serengeti or the Ngorongoro Crater. Tanzania also boasts world-class reefs, national parks, and adventure breaks off the beaten track.

Dar Es Salaam’s port is an important hub for trading across the Eastern African region, and an increasingly strong economic centre.

Within the African continent, Qatar Airways already serves Casablanca, Algiers, Tunis, Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, Khartoum, Tripoli, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Nairobi.
