17 Aug 2015 by GrahamSmith

Qatar Airways is increasing its services to Asmara, Eritrea and Dhaka, Bangaldesh.

The carrier will up its flights from Doha to Asmara from four to five-times weekly from September 7.

Outbound service QR1443 will depart Doha at 2130 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and arrive in Asmara at 0100 the next day. Return service QR1444 will leave Asmara at 0200 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and land in Doha at 0520.

All services will be operated by an A320 in a two-class configuration with 12 seats in business class and 132 in economy.

Qatar Airways launched its Asmara route in December last year (see news, August 2014).

The airline's Doha-Dhaka route will increase from ten weekly flights to 14 on December 9.

The double-daily service will see outbound flights QR634 and QR636 depart Doha at 0145 and 0855 respectively, arriving in Dhaka at 0930 and 1640. Return services QR635 and QR637 will leave Dhaka at 1040 and 1350 respectively, and land in Doha at 2000 and 2310.

All flights will be operated by a two-class A330-300 with 30 seats in business and 275 in economy.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said: "This further expansion is in direct response to a growing demand on these popular routes.

"We are delighted to offer even more opportunities for our customers across the globe to connect through Doha's state-of-the-art Hamad International airport to both Eritrea and Bangladesh, flying on board one of the youngest fleets in the industry."
