Frequencies on the Doha-Dar Es Salaam route will rise to 12 times a week with an additional four flights from January 2, and another flight on February 14, 2011. The flights starting on January 2 will depart from Doha at 1120 and arrive in Dar Es Salaam at 1715. The return leg will depart the Tanzanian capital at 1815 and arrive back in Doha at 2350. The additional flight beginning on February 14 will follow the same schedule.

Both routes will be operated by a dual-class Airbus A320 aircraft.
