More destinations, more flights
The air carrier will resume flights to several destinations that had been on a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including England, China, Japan, UAE and Morocco, while new flights to Bangladesh, France, Sudan and Indonesia will be added.
Al Baker announced new locations, including Chittagong, Juba, Kinshasa, Lyon, Medan, Toulouse, and Trabzon, that are to begin service in 2023.
Beijing, Birmingham, Buenos Aires, Casablanca, Davao, Marrakech, Nice, Osaka, Phnom Penh, Ras Al-Khaimah, and Tokyo Haneda are among the destinations Qatar Airways is starting to fly to again.
Qatar Airways will also increase the frequency of its flights to 35 destinations in 2023. The CEO expressed the airline’s commitment to connecting the global community, increasing connectivity and bridging gaps in the travel industry.
He also announced the airline’s new sports sponsorship portfolio and several other upcoming projects and partnerships.
“Qatar Airways is dedicated to enrich the global community which it serves. As the World’s Best Airline, we are excited to offer more ways of bringing the world together, increasing connectivity and bridging gaps within the travel industry,” Al Baker said.
“As we expand our fleet, network, partnerships, and international presence we look forward to working together to deliver sustainable growth and a compelling future for the industry.”
Over 160,000 visitors are expected to attend ITB Berlin, which showcases travel and holiday exhibitors from more than 180 countries and five continents.
“Qatar will continue to be a global hub of connectivity and an ideal destination for tourism, long after the great success of the historic FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022,” the official added.
