Qatar Airways increases services to Moscow
Qatar Airways has added more flights to its Moscow route in response to growing demand from business and leisure travellers.
The carrier added an extra daily flight on the Doha-Moscow route on 2 August, bringing the total number of flights per week between Doha and the Russian capital to 21.
The airline first began flying to the Russian capital in 2003, and the additional flights comes the same month as it celebrates 14 years of direct service to Moscow.
Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways’ chief executive, 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.
Flexible travel options
“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 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.
