Akbar Al Baker, chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, said, “When passengers travel with us on our non-stop service to Doha and onward to destinations in Europe, Americas and the Middle East, these additional frequencies will provide even greater flexibility, award-winning service and convenience that they can only experience with Qatar Airways.
“The increased capacity on the Dhaka and Colombo routes represents a major commitment by Qatar Airways to enhance our offering to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. We have demonstrated our long-term commitment to both countries that has been rewarded with the loyalty of many thousands of passengers per month who choose to fly with us. We look forward to welcoming even more passengers on our flights.”
The Qatar Airways Airbus A320 features 12 Business Class seats and 132 seats in Economy Class. Besides a spacious environment throughout the entire aircraft, passengers across both cabins can enjoy complimentary inflight meals.
