Qatar Airways set to add flights to key European cities

Qatar Airways has announced plans to meet increasing demand within Europe with a substantial increase in flight frequencies to Stockholm in Sweden, Copenhagen in Denmark and Brussels in Belgium.

The Doha-based carrier said in a statement that from December 1, flights from Doha to Stockholm will expand from a 10-times weekly service to 13 flights per week, a capacity increase of 30 percent on the route.

The increase is seasonal and valid until March 25, 2016, the airline said, adding that a double-daily service will be operated every day except Wednesday by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Qatar Airways’ flight network to Scandinavia will be further enhanced with the expansion of flights to Copenhagen from December 2.

The airline will increase frequencies from an 11-times weekly service to double daily flights, representing an increase of almost 30 percent in additional seats every week. All flights will be operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

On December 4, five years after the introduction of the route, flights from Doha to Brussels will also be increased from seven to eight times weekly representing a 14 percent increase in capacity.

Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “We are delighted to offer our customers wishing to travel to and from Sweden, Denmark and Belgium an even greater choice of connection opportunities and this further network expansion is evidence of the growing demand on these routes.”
