DOHA: Qatar Airways has changed flight timings in Muscat and Abu Dhabi starting today, set to offer passengers with convenient and improved connections to destinations served by the airline across Europe, The Americas and the Far East.

Qatar Airways operates 31 flights a week to the Omani capital Muscat; a route launched 12 years ago. 

The UAE capital Abu Dhabi is served six-times-a-day.

Keeping with the existing frequency, Qatar Airways has rescheduled flight QR169 which will depart Muscat at 2220 hrs instead of 2330 hrs and QR173, which will depart Muscat at 0020hrs instead of 0645hrs. 

The revised flights will provide even more seamless connectivity for passengers travelling to a range of destinations, including Houston, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, London, Manila, Vienna, Barcelona, Paris, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Montreal, Bangkok and many others.

Qatar Airways is expanding its operations in Oman next summer with the launch of four flights each week to Salalah beginning May 22, taking weekly capacity to Oman up to 35 flights.

Popular business and leisure destination, Abu Dhabi will also have enhanced flight timings from the start of the New Year.

Qatar Airways has rescheduled flight QR123, departing Abu Dhabi at 0650hrs daily, instead of 2240hrs. Business passengers can take advantage of this early morning flight to connect seamlessly to popular European and American destinations and also maximise day trips in the Qatari capital. 

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: “These new timings will significantly enhance our product offering, ensuring our passengers have more convenient flights and connections, part of our overall strategy to improve our service levels.
