Qatar Airways increases German, Austrian and French frequencies
Qatar Airways has announced that it will increase the airline's frequencies to Germany and other European destinations this year, as it prepares to start a new non-stop service to Zurich in July.
Qatar Airways' Chief Executive Officer Al-Baker announced at the ITB Berlin travel exhibition that the airline has recently increased combined frequencies to Frankfurt and Munich by four flights a week, to meet rising demand for Qatar Airways' services from the German market.
"From July 8 we will also be starting our non-stop service to Zurich. This will be a four-times-a-week service that will use our long range A319, and give people in Switzerland easy access to the rest of our network," said Al-Baker.
Qatar Airways will take delivery of 13 new aircraft during 2004, including four new A330s, two A320s, and two A321s. In addition there will be a delivery of four leased A330s, bringing the fleet of A330s up to a total of thirteen Airbus A330s by the end of 2004. The airline will also be taking delivery of an additional aircraft for the Amiri VIP fleet. — (menareport.com)
