Qatar Airways delays Azerbaijan, Georgia service
Doha, August 25, 2011
Qatar Airways has postponed the launch date of its new flights to Azerbaijan and Georgia to February, 2012 due to operational reasons.
Originally slated to start operations on November 30, the new daily services to the capital cities of Baku and Tbilisi respectively, will now begin on February 1.
"With capacity increases planned on many routes, we face constraints on aircraft availability, therefore decided to revise these two route launch dates and move them to February,” said Akbar Al Baker, chief executive officer of Qatar Airways.
“We regret the inconvenience caused, but all steps are being taken to look after passengers already holding bookings," he added.
Passengers with tickets and confirmed bookings to and from both cities will be rebooked on alternative flights to their final destination, a Qatar Airways statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
