Qatar Airways Continues Middle East Expansion

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

qatar-airways-logoQatar Airways has continued its aggressive expansion plans with the launch of two new regional routes, thereby growing its strong connections within the Middle East.

The new routes, to Sharjah and Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), will both operate daily from the airline’s hub in Doha and add to the existing Qatar Airways network of flights to Dubai (DXB) and Abu Dhabi, doubling the total number of destinations within the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from two to four.

The new UAE routes will both be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft and customers from around the world will benefit from the increased accessibility to the region as well as convenient connection times across the airline’s expanding global network. There will be three flights daily to Sharjah, with two flights per day to DWC.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker, commented; “Over the years, we have focused upon the expansion of our route network, and today’s launches to Sharjah and DWC demonstrate our commitment to the United Arab Emirates.”

Dubai World Central (DWC), located in the Jebel Ali area of Dubai southwest of the city, is a strategic initiative of the Government of Dubai for the establishment of the world’s first aerotropolis. Leveraging the emirate's position as a leading global trade, business and aviation hub, the focus of DWC is on economic development for the region.
