Qatar Airways to boost Moscow services from August

Qatar Airways has announced it has added additional flights to its Moscow route, bringing the total frequency to 21 flights per week between Doha and the Russian capital.

Commencing August 2nd, the airline will introduce an extra daily flight on the Doha-Moscow route to meet growing demand to a destination popular with both business and leisure travellers.

The additional frequency will be served by an Airbus A320 aircraft.

Moscow is renowned for its stunning architecture and iconic historical landmarks such as the Kremlin and Red Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Russian capital is a cultural treasure trove, famous for its symphonies, classical music, theatre and ballet, offering visitors a vast array of enriching activities to choose from.

Qatar Airways chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “In celebration of going to Moscow together for 14 years, and as part of Qatar Airways’ ongoing efforts to expand our presence in Eastern Europe, we are very pleased to offer an additional frequency to this iconic city.

“Passengers from the Russian capital will have even more flexibility in travelling seamlessly through our Doha Hub, Hamad International Airport, to any of our destinations across our growing network, while travellers from all over the world will now have the opportunity to taste the delights of the Russian capital, as well as experience our renowned world-class service.”

The airline, which in August will celebrate 14 years of direct service to Moscow, first began flying to the Russian capital in 2003.

The launch of the additional frequency to Moscow comes at a time when Qatar Airways is expediting its expansion plans in Eastern Europe, with service to Skopje, Republic of Macedonia; and Prague, Czech Republic set to commence by the end of August.
