Qatar still expanding

QATAR AIRWAYS has confirmed the launch dates of four recently-announced routes for 2010 as part of the airline’s expansion strategy.  The statement comes prior to the already publicised introduction of a daily non-stop service between Doha and Bengaluru (formerly known as Bangalore) on 22 February, the airline’s 11th Indian destination.  Beginning 30 March Qatar adds Copenhagen to its network with four flights a week non-stop from Doha.  After Stockholm, the Danish capital becomes Qatar’s second Scandinavian destination, the only Gulf carrier serving the region.  A week later, 5 April, Ankara comes ‘on-line’ four times per week, supporting its existing scheduled services to Istanbul.  And from 26 April, Qatar Airways expands its operations in the Land of the Rising Sun with daily flights to the Japanese capital, Tokyo.  The flights will be operated from Doha via Osaka, representing a significant increase in capacity for the Japanese market.  Seoul, which is currently served via Osaka, will become a daily non-stop service from Doha, beginning 28 March.  Barcelona begins 7 June. www.qatarairways.com
