Qatar Airways has announced that it will increase daily frequencies to the Scandinavian capitals of Stockholm and Oslo, alongside the Italian cities of Milan and Rome.
Due to an increase in demand to key European destinations, especially from the Asia Pacific region, flights to Rome, Milan and Stockholm will increase to 17 per week from Doha’s Hamad International Airport, while flights to Oslo are set to increase from seven to ten frequencies per week.
The airline has also announced that double daily flights to the Russian capital Moscow will increase to three times daily from December 14th, just five days before Qatar Airways’ inaugural daily flight to the Russian city of St. Petersburg.
The additional frequency to Moscow will be operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft.
Qatar Airways chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways continues to expedite its ambitious expansion plans and demonstrate strong growth across Europe and Russia.
“These additional frequencies will provide our passengers with an array of convenient travel options when travelling to Doha or further afield on our global network.”
The national carrier of Qatar currently serves double daily flights to Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport, Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport, Milan’s Malpensa Airport and Rome’s Fiumicino Airport with a mix of Boeing B787, Airbus A330 and Airbus A321 aircraft.
With a seamless stop-over at the five-star hub of the airline, Hamad International Airport, European travellers can reach more than 150 business and leisure destinations across six continents with the airline’s young fleet.
In addition to the frequency increases to Moscow, Stockholm, Oslo, Rome and Milan, Qatar Airways recently announced additional daily non-stop flights to Kyiv, Prague, Warsaw and Helsinki due to a significant increase in passenger demand.
