LONDON – The German capital is set to benefit from the increase in flights to and from the Qatari capital.
If flights to Berlin on a daily basis aren’t enough, the Qatari flag carrier will increase its weekly frequencies significantly. The airline will fly to Berlin 10 flights weekly as of 12th of August and 11 weekly flights as of 6th of September.
The German capital has proven to be a popular destination for Qatar Airways, and the airline is very satisfied with its growing footprint in Germany.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We have continuously supported the German market to ensure stronger connectivity to our passengers, allowing them to have one-stop services to so many global destinations.”
“We have made huge efforts to provide options to our passengers in Germany and by increasing our Berlin schedule to 11 flights per week, we now operate 46 flights per week to Doha from our three gateways.”
“Our passengers in Germany benefit enormously from having not just a world-class product from the only Skytrax Five-Star Airline in Europe and the Middle East, but a greater choice of destinations, all connected through Hamad International Airport, recently voted the World’s Best Airport for the second time.”
“We are proud to have maintained a constant presence throughout the pandemic, helping to repatriate thousands of Germans by providing them options to get them home in addition to many charter flights.”
Apart from flying to Berlin, the airline also flies to other airports including Frankfurt and Munich. Passenger levels between Doha and Munich and Frankfurt racked up to 25,000 passengers before the pandemic.
The increase in flights to Berlin meant that local ‘Berliners’ are going to benefit from Qatar’s extensive route network to over 150 destinations worldwide. Travellers from Berlin can now fly to 30 destinations in Africa, in 19 countries, five destinations in Australia, 32 in the Middle East and 16 in Asia.
The airline will fly its state-of-the-art Boeing 787 aircraft.
Berlin operations have significantly expanded after the opening of Berlin Brandenburg Airport in 2020.
The increase in flights shows that Qatar Airways is confident and places high trust in the German market. These new operations are possible due to the new airport being built, compared to the previous airport of Berlin-Tegel (TXL).
