Qatar Airways will be adding six extra flights per week between Doha and Manila starting from October 26th.
The move follows an expanded Air Service Agreement between the State of Qatar and the Republic of Philippines.
Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker, said: “The increase in flight frequencies on the Doha–Manila route serves to further strengthen commercial and trade links between our two countries and we are delighted to be able to provide our Philippines-based passengers with greater connectivity options when they choose to fly with Qatar Airways.
“Now, more passengers will be able to experience our award-winning hospitality and also our state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport when transiting seamlessly onward to their final destination.
“Passengers travelling with Qatar Airways beyond Doha can also look forward to flying on some of the world’s most advanced aircraft, including the A350 XWB.”
The Doha-based carrier is currently flying eight flights per week to Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila.
With the increase in weekly flights, Qatar Airways will operate a full twice-daily service to Manila, in addition to its daily flights between Clark and Doha.
The Doha – Manila route is operated by the Boeing 777 aircraft, featuring 24 Business Class seats and 356 seats in Economy Class.
Passengers travelling in Business Class can look forward to relaxing in one of the most comfortable and high-tech, fully-flat beds with a 78-inch seat pitch.
