Qatar Airways has announced plans to resume flights to the Russian capital Moscow.

A three times weekly service (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) will commence on March 2, using an Airbus A320 configured for 120 economy and 12 business class seats.

Flights will depart Doha at 0305, landing into Moscow Domodedovo Airport at 0820, with the return leg leaving Moscow at 1720 and landing back into Doha at 2225.

Qatar Airways has gradually rebuilt its network following the onset of Covid-19, with just over 120 destinations currently being served, and plans to increase this to 130 by the end of March.

The carrier recently announced a further ramping up of its US services, with the resumption of flights to Atlanta and frequency increases on other routes.
