Qatar Airways adds more flights to Sohar

The Peninsula

DOHA: Qatar Airways announced that it will add four additional weekly flights to Sohar, its newest destination in Oman, from October 1. The additional frequency was added in response to increased passenger demand, and will take the number of weekly flights between Doha and the Sultanate of Oman from 52 to 56.

The airline launched flights to Sohar, its third and most recent destination in Oman, last month. 

Sohar, a vibrant costal city known both for its traditional Omani culture and beautiful beaches, offers a wide range of activities for tourists, including diving, snorkelling and kite boarding, as well as many traditional markets featuring Omani handicrafts.

Flight Schedules: (Daily)
Doha (DOH) to Sohar (OHS) QR1132 departs 13:35 arrives 16:10
Sohar (OHS) to Doha (DOH) QR1133 departs 17:10 arrives 18:00

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to see robust demand on our Doha–Sohar route, especially given that we launched the service only last month. The increased frequency will allow both business and leisure travellers from Sohar even more flexibility to take advantage of smooth connections to India and Southeast Asia via our hub at Hamad International Airport.”

The additional flights to Sohar will be serviced by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in First Class and 132 seats in Economy Class.

Qatar Airways first began service to Oman by launching flights to the capital, Muscat in 2000. In 2013, Salalah was added to the airline’s growing network as the second destination in Oman. The airline currently operates

five daily flights between Doha and Muscat, and two daily return flights on the Doha-Salalah route.

Qatar Airways has a host of exciting new destinations planned for the remainder of this year and 2018, including Canberra, Chiang Mai, and San Francisco to name just a few.
