Qatar Airways...accessing potential markets

Qatar Airways launches 12th new destination

ASMARA, December 11, 2014

Qatar Airways, the flag carrier of Qatar, has launched its 12th new destination, expanding its services to Asmara, Eritrea.

The new route will provide passengers to and from Eritrea with two weekly flights connecting Asmara via Doha to more than 140 destinations.

“Qatar Airways is proud to be the first five-star airline to launch non-stop flights to Asmara and the commencement of our services here is another example of the airline’s commitment to opening up access to markets that we believe have great potential,” said Marwan Koleilat, Qatar Airways chief commercial officer.

Located by the Red Sea, the economy of Eritrea has experienced considerable growth in recent years as the country has capitalised on its extensive deposits of natural resources. At the same time, Asmara also has much to offer the leisure traveller being a city steeped in rich architecture and culture.

“The start of our five-star services to Eritrea signifies our commitment to opening our doors for even stronger business ties and supporting greater commercial development with the international business community,” added Koleilat.

The Doha – Asmara route is operated with an Airbus A320 aircraft offering up to 144 seats in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in Business Class and up to 132 seats in Economy. – TradeArabia News Service
