The A330 will be operational on all 11 frequencies to and from Kochi connecting to more than 125 destinations around the world via the airline's hub in Doha. The announcement coincides with the 5-Star airline’s tenth anniversary of successful operations to the popular tourist city in the South-Indian State of Kerala.
“The decision to increase capacity to and from Kochi comes in time to meet growing passenger demand and reflects our aggressive expansion strategy to offer customers a superior travel experience and seamless connectivity,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker. “India is a very important part of our expansion strategy and this is evident by the operation of 95 flights per week from 12 cities in the India network.”
Along with Kochi, Qatar Airways’ Indian operations cover daily services to Doha from Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Trivandrum, Chennai and Bengaluru, and double daily flights from Delhi.
