DOHA: Qatar Airways yesterday launched daily flights from Doha to two new destinations in the UAE-Sharjah and Dubai World Central Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).
The new routes add to the existing Qatar Airways network of flights to Dubai (DXB) and Abu Dhabi, doubling the total number of destinations within the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from two to four.
The new UAE routes will both be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft and customers from around the world will benefit from the increased accessibility to the region as well as convenient connection times across the airline’s expanding global network. There will be three flights daily to Sharjah, with two flights per day to DWC.
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker said, “As one of our closest neighbours in the Gulf, it is of key importance to offer excellent and frequent air travel connections to the UAE, and the location of both airports relative to our network will afford travelers an even wider variety of options when they are looking to reach their final destinations”, he added.
Sheikh Khalid bin Essam Al Qassimi, Chairman of Department of Civil Aviation-Sharjah, said: “We would like to thank Qatar Airways for their choice to use Sharjah International Airport as a new destination within its international network. This will add value to the travelers using the airport to reach their destinations in Europe, Asia and America. In addition, it will enhance the trade and transportation services between Sharjah and Doha.”
Dubai World Central (DWC), located in the Jebel Ali area of Dubai southwest of the city, is a strategic initiative of the Government of Dubai for the establishment of the world’s first aerotropolis.
