From 9 December 2015, the airline will add four more weekly services to its Doha-Dhaka route, taking the total frequency to 14 per week, or two flights per day. Qatar Airways operates the Dhaka route using a two-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft featuring 30 seats in business class and 275 in economy.
The airline will also increase its service to Eritrea’s capital Asmara from four to five weekly flights.
Qatar Airways’ group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said; “This further expansion is in direct response to a growing demand on these popular routes. We are delighted to offer even more opportunities for our customers across the globe to connect through Doha’s state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport to both Eritrea and Bangladesh, flying on board one of the youngest fleets in the industry.”
Under the new schedule, Qatar Airways’ flights to Dhaka will depart Doha every day at 0145 and 0855, arriving in the Bangladeshi capital at 0930 and 1640. The return services leave at 1040 and 2000, getting back into Doha at 1350 and 2310.
