Oneworld member Qatar Airways has announced another round of network and capacity expansion.

From July, the airline will launch flights from its Doha hub to Hamburg, Germany.

Hamburg will be Qatar Airways’ fifth destination in Germany, following Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin and Dusseldorf.

Moreover, from June, Qatar Airways will return to Venice.

Venice is expected to see high demand from passengers from Japan, China and Australia, while Hamburg will serve as a gateway to South Africa, Thailand and the Philippines, the airline said.

Venice will be served daily from 12 June, with flights departing Doha at 0900 and arriving 1420 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The return flights depart the Italian city at 1650 and arrive back into Doha same day at 2310.

Doha-Hamburg will be a daily service, too, with flights departing Doha at 0835 and arriving at 1410 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and returning at 1540 for a 2240 arrival back into Doha.

On Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, however, the Hamburg flights will depart Doha at 0215 and arriving at 0750 in the Northern German city. The return services then leave Hamburg at 0920 for a 1620 arrival back into Doha.

The Hamburg and Venice announcements come on the back of a recent expansion to the Qatar Airways winter schedule which includes increased flight frequencies to key leisure destinations, including Amsterdam, Bangkok, Barcelona, Belgrade and Miami.
