Qatar to up flight frequency to Madrid

5 Aug 2014 by GrahamSmith

Qatar Airways will add an extra three weekly flights onto its Madrid route later this year.

From November 16, the airline will operate ten weekly flights between its Doha hub and the Spanish capital.

The route is serviced by a B777-300ER — the increased frequency will see Qatar Airways offering an additional 252 business class and 1,758 economy seats per week.

Akbar Al Baker, the carrier's CEO, said: "In the short time that we have been flying to Madrid, we have witnessed a steady increase in the demand for flights to and from the city.

"I am happy to say that a direct result of that is the number of travellers that choose to fly with us has also increased, and this is why we are thrilled to be able to satisfy the demand of our passengers by offering three additional flights per week."

Qatar Airways first started flying to Madrid in December 2005.

Yesterday, the airline revealed it will increase capacity on its Doha to Perth route by 30 per cent later this year (see news, August 4).
