Qatar Airways unveils dates for new routes
Qatar Airways has unveiled the launch dates for new routes to Copenhagen, Ankara, Tokyo and Barcelona, which the Doha-based airline announced last year.
Beginning March 30, 2010, Qatar Airways will add Copenhagen to its European network with four flights a week, non-stop from Doha.
Starting April 5, the airline will jet into Turkey with the addition of four non-stop services a week from Doha to Ankara, supporting its existing services to Istanbul. And from April 26, Qatar Airways will launch daily flights to Tokyo. The flights will be operated from Doha via Osaka. Seoul, which is currently served via Osaka, will be de-linked from the Japanese city to become a daily non-stop service from Doha, beginning March 28.
Starting June 7, Qatar Airways will also launch non-stop flights between Doha and the Spanish city of Barcelona. Details of the airline's planned flights to Sydney will be announced at a later date.
"These routes further strengthen our resolve to fly to the heart of political and business capital cities across the world, giving passengers more choice to get to their final destination," said Qatar Airways' CEO Akbar Al Baker.
