LONDON – Qatar Airways announced it will resume scheduled flights to Multan International Airport, Pakistan.
The service will begin on 22 February three weekly, and it will increase to four weekly, effective 27 March 2022 after the airline temporarily suspended flying to Multan in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The route will be operated by Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration.
Following the resumption, the airline will operate 66 weekly flights to and from six airports in Pakistan, serving more cities in Pakistan than any other full-service global airline.
Qatar Airways will be the only scheduled carrier to operate nonstop flights between Doha and Multan, Cirium networks data shows.
The airline previously announced it will boost its service to Nigeria with the launch of four weekly flights to Kano and three weekly flights to Port Harcourt in March, both operating via Abuja.
In late January, Qatar Airways also signed an order for 34 777-8 Freighters and options for 16 more, a total purchase that would be worth more than $20 billion at current list prices.
