Qatar Airways says to increase flights to Madrid

Doha carrier to add three weekly flights to Spanish capital city from November 16

Qatar Airways says to increase flights to Madrid

Qatar Airways said on Sunday it plans to increase its operations to Madrid, Spain from November 16 with the addition of three extra flights per week.

The increase in frequency will bring the total number of flights up from seven to 10 per week, the Doha-based airline said in a statement.

With the addition of the three new frequencies, the route, which is serviced by a Boeing 777 aircraft will offer an additional 252 Business Class and 1,758 Economy Class seats per week, for an overall increase of 2,010 seats, it added.

Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said: “In the short time that we have been flying to Madrid, we have witnessed a steady increase in the demand for flights to and from the city.

"I am happy to say that a direct result of that is the number of travellers that choose to fly with us has also increased, and this is why we are thrilled to be able to satisfy the demand of our passengers by offering three additional flights per week.

"We look forward to welcoming both our current and new passengers onboard, where they will have an opportunity to have an enhanced five-star travel experience with Qatar Airways.”

Direct flights to Madrid, both the capital and the most populous city in Spain, were launched in January 2011.
