Qatar Airways increase flights to Saudi from July 14

Qatar Airways will be operating four flights a week between Doha and Medina.Qatar Airways is set to significantly increase flights to Saudi Arabia with the introduction of a fourth destination and additional services to existing markets, representing a dramatic 71% rise in frequency.The Doha–Medina route will be operated non-stop with an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in First Class and 132 in economy.

The new route launch is in addition to increased capacity to Saudi Arabia’s two largest cities – the capital Riyadh and Red Sea port city of Jeddah, which saw their daily services double, effective June 1.Riyadh sits in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula and is one of Saudi Arabia’s fastest growing cities. Jeddah is also the main entry point for pilgrims making the Haj pilgrimage to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina.
Also from June 1, the eastern city of Dammam saw capacity increase from the current 21 flights a week to 28. Dammam, the third largest city in Saudi Arabia, is the capital of the country’s oil-rich Eastern Province and a key commercial hub and port in the Kingdom.Qatar Airways is operating a mix of narrow-body Airbus A320s and wide-body Airbus A330s and its flagship Boeing 777 aircraft on flights to and from Saudi Arabia.

The capacity increases help facilitate the growing religious tourism industry in Saudi Arabia. And the extra frequencies provide added convenience for both business and leisure travellers, offering greater connectivity to an array of international destinations served by Qatar Airways across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America via its Doha hub.Over the past 12 months, Qatar Airways has strengthened its international route network with the launch of flights to many cities, including Bengaluru (Bangalore), Copenhagen, Tokyo, Ankara, Barcelona, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Phuket, Nice, Hanoi, Bucharest, Budapest and Brussels.
