Award-winning airline strengthens commitment to Sudan with three additional weekly flights.
KHARTOUM, SUDAN – Qatar Airways has added three additional flights per week between its hub in Doha and Khartoum, bringing the total number of services to Sudan to 17 weekly flights.
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said the extra capacity would be a great boost as it would improve connections from Khartoum to over 130 destinations across the airline’s global network, offering passengers more choice with further convenience and flexibility to their travel plans.
“As part of Qatar Airways’ ever-expanding route map, a key pillar is to also evaluate existing routes and increase capacity where there is passenger demand.
“Qatar Airways can seamlessly connect travellers from Khartoum via our Doha hub to diverse cities like New York, Washington, Chicago, London, Stockholm, Paris, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Dubai and many others.
“At the same time, with our new additional services, we offer travellers from around the world increased connectivity to access Khartoum.”
Qatar Airways began operations to Khartoum in May 1994. The route is operated by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in First Class and up to 132 seats in Economy. Selected A320s feature seatback TV screens providing all passengers in both cabins with the next generation interactive onboard entertainment system – a choice of more than 800 audio and video on demand options.
Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 17 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 129 aircraft to 134 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and The Americas.
Over the next few months, the network will grow further with Sharjah and Dubai World Central, both in the UAE (March 1, 2014), Larnaca, Cyprus (April 29), Philadelphia, USA (April 2, 2014), Sabiha Gokcen Airport, Turkey (May 22, 2014), Edinburgh, Scotland (May 28, 2014), Miami, USA (June 10, 2014) and Dallas/Fort Worth, USA (July 1, 2014).
