Both routes will be operated a two-class configuration Airbus A320.

“Over the past two to three years we have identified great opportunities to probe markets across Europe that are largely underserved by full service international airlines,” CEO Akbar Al Baker said in a statement.

Earlier this week the carrier, whose entire flight network spans 188 destinations, said it would begin daily flights to Chicago from 10 April next year.

Over the next few months, Qatar Airways will launch services to Yangon, Myanmar (3 October) and Maputo, Mozambique (31 October).

Since the beginning of 2012 the airline has launched flights to Baku, Azerbaijan; Tbilisi, Georgia; Kigali, Rwanda; Zagreb, Croatia; Erbil and Baghdad, Iraq; Perth, Australia; and Kilamanjaro, Tanzania.
