QATAR AIRWAYS is to fly non-stop from Doha to South America. Whilst no details have yet been confirmed the airline was trumpeting the new destinations at the international German travel show ITB last week. Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires will be joining the carrier’s ever expanding network within the next few months. The airline's state-of-the-art Boeing 777 aircraft – of which there are currently 16 in the fleet – featuring Business Class seats that convert into 180 degrees fully flat horizontal beds, will be deployed on the new South American routes. Other new services due for 2010 include Copenhagen (from 30 March); Ankara (5 April); Tokyo (26 April) and Barcelona (7 June). In addition, Qatar Airways will phase in capacity increases through additional frequencies and deployment of larger aircraft on selected international routes from the beginning of the summer schedules on 28 March. These include Amritsar, Cape Town, Chennai, Colombo, Geneva, Goa, Guangzhou, Johannesburg, Kathmandu, Luxor, Maldives, Seychelles, Shanghai and Stockholm. www.qatarairways.com
