Qatar Airways is mulling on adding two more stations in India in order to expand operations in the country. Akbar Al Baker, CEO for Qatar Airways, said that as per a bilateral agreement between two countries, the airline could add two more stations, which it would like to do by next year.
“The Indian market has a huge growth potential and we have the capacity to tap that,” Al Baker told the Economic Times.
The airline would also switch to Gas to Liquid Jet Fuel (GTL) – a fully synthetic aviation fuel – instead of Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) from mid next year during the forthcoming international energy conference in Doha. The first flight using GTL would be operated between Doha and Johannesburg.
