Qatar Airways recently announced its intent to launch direct flights from Doha to Sofia come March 2015.
The route was currently served by the airline via Bucharest.
The airline has also increased frequencies from Doha to Ankara, which will be served by a six weekly flight connection instead of five from 1 March 2015, while capacity will increase to Zagreb with an additional direct flight per week, increasing frequency from four to five direct flights weekly.
Qatar Airways group chief executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways is expanding rapidly, not only in terms of new destinations and our network offering, but also with the service we offer. Complementing our five-star service in the skies are our transfer facilities at the newly unveiled state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport, coupled with the experience of flying on board one of the youngest fleets in the industry.”
Qatar Airways will also be increasing the frequency on its Doha – Istanbul route to a double-daily as of 29 March 2015.
