Qatar Airways announced a capacity increase to daily scheduled services on the Doha – Warsaw route, effective February 1.
The current four-times-a-week service is scheduled to move to a daily operation less than two months after the launch of flights to Poland’s capital city.
The frequency rise follows a pledge by Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker in December to introduce more flights on the Warsaw route once there was strong passenger demand.
“I have been pleasantly surprised how well the route has performed since adding the latest European gateway to our ever-expanding global network last month,” he said.
“When we enter new markets, we do so carefully with limited capacity and then develop routes with more capacity once we see evidence that additional flights are warranted. Today’s development is welcome news for the people of Poland with more choice of flights and a great international network to choose from, specifically to Asia, Australia and the Middle East.”
Similarly, Al Baker explained that passengers from around the world will have more connectivity into Poland each day of the week.
“Serving popular routes with multi-frequency flights is one of our key strategies. We were confident that the Doha – Warsaw service would become a highly popular route, but didn’t expect this to happen so soon,” added Al Baker.
Marking Qatar Airways’ 32nd destination in Europe, the Doha – Warsaw route was launched on December 5th with a grand welcome reception at the city’s Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport.Warsaw became the 12th and final new route of the year in the airline’s expanding global route map covering Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
