Qatar Airways ramps up connections to East Africa

Qatar Airways is to expand its East African network with 12 additional flights across two capital cities - Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam. The daily Doha - Nairobi flights will increase to 12-flights-a-week from 3 January, taking capacity to Kenya up to twice daily. The Tanzanian capital, Dar Es Salaam, currently served daily, will receive an additional four flights a week from 2 January. An additional flight from February 14 will take frequency up to 12 weekly services. “As part of our growth strategy, we continue to step up frequency on existing routes, which is a strong lever to facilitate growth in the business and tourism sectors,” said chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker. “We have been serving Nairobi since November 2005 and this has proved one of our biggest success stories in Africa, so we are extremely pleased to be offering our passengers even more choice with additional frequency going up to double daily.”
