Qatar Airways is to add four destinations to its rapidly growing route network, according to the airline`s Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker.
Al Baker said Qatar Airways will fly to Luxor, Istanbul, Zurich and Kabul, this summer.
He made the announcement during a joint press conference held with Dr Majdi Sabri, IATA`s Regional Vice-President for the Middle East, who was in Doha on behalf of the global air travel association, to congratulate Qatar Airways on completing ten successful years of existence.
The airline has been expanding rapidly adding some ten destinations towards the end of last year to reach 48. That trend is being continued well into this year with a target of serving more than 60 major worldwide destinations by the end of 2004, said the Qatar Airways CEO.
“In June, we will begin flights to Luxor in Egypt and to Istanbul in Turkey. The following month, in July, we will begin a new service to Zurich in Switzerland. In November we will begin flights to Kabul in Afghanistan,” said Al Baker.
