Qatar Airways to add capacity on Poland route

Carrier says it will fly daily to Warsaw from Feb 1 due to demand

Travel, Qatar airways

Qatar Airways on Tuesday announced a capacity increase to daily scheduled services on its Poland route from next month.

Effective from February 1, the current four-times-a-week service from Doha to Warsaw is scheduled to move to a daily operation less than two months after the launch of flights to Poland’s capital city.

The frequency rise follows a pledge by Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker in December to introduce more flights on the Warsaw route once there was strong passenger demand.

“I have been pleasantly surprised how well the route has performed since adding the latest European gateway to our ever-expanding global network last month,” he said.

“When we enter new markets, we do so carefully with limited capacity and then develop routes with more capacity once we see evidence that additional flights are warranted.

"Today’s development is welcome news for the people of Poland with more choice of flights and a great international network to choose from, specifically to Asia, Australia and the Middle East.”

Marking Qatar Airways’ 32nd destination in Europe, the Doha – Warsaw route was launched on December 5.

Warsaw became the 12th and final new route of the year in the airline’s expanding global route map.

One of the world’s fastest growing airlines, Qatar Airways on Monday launched flights to Gassim in Saudi Arabia – the airline’s first route launch of 2013.

Qatar Airways is set to launch flights to Najaf, Iraq (January 23); Phnom Penh, Cambodia (February 20); Chengdu, China (March 19); Chicago, USA (April 10); and Salalah, Oman (May 22).
