Qatar Airways Offer New Flights to Uganda, Azerbaijan and Georgia

Qatar Airways, a 5-star rated airline, is expanding fast and how! The Middle East’s major airline has announced yet another set of new routes out of Doha this year after a series of launches earlier this year.

The flag carrier of Qatar is all set and ready to offer flights from its hub at Doha airport to Uganda, Azerbaijan and Georgia. From November 2, Qatar Airways will run daily non-stop flights to Entebbe, Uganda’s second largest city; and after 4 weeks the airline will offer flights to Baku, Azerbaijan continuing onto Tbilisi, Georgia.

Travellers will be offered the option of travelling via the airline’s almost legendary business class and relatively sober economy class in Airbus A320. A total of 12 tickets will be available for business class travellers, while for those looking for economy class cheap tickets on flights, 132 seats will be on hand. Cheap tickets on flights is really not Qatar Airways’ forte but the premier airline does a good job of substituting it with world class on-board amenities and services.

The announcement was made by Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker at the opening day of the Arabian Travel Market, one of the Middle East’s premier travel trade shows. Al Baker was quoted as stating, “Expanding our presence deeper into Central Asia has been a focus of ours for some time so it is with extreme delight to be able to announce we will soon have new routes to add in this part of the world.

For Uganda route, he observed, “Adding Entebbe provides us with another foothold deeper into the African continent, where we already serve 15 destinations.”
