QATAR Airways will progressively increase its services into Singapore, from its current daily service to twice a day by early November.
Currently operating nonstop daily flights from Doha into Changi International Airport using its flagship Boeing B777 aircraft, the airline will phase in an additional three weekly flights from May 1, with a further three weekly flights to be introduced from October 1. An extra weekly flight will be added from November 3, taking frequency up to double-daily.
Qatar Airways CEO, Akbar Al Baker, said the addition of a second daily flight to Singapore was a key component of the airline’s growth strategy for the Far East.
“Singapore has been one of our best-performing routes in the entire region for a long time, with load factors consistently in the high 90s. The addition of a second daily service will allow Qatar Airways to grow the passenger market for inbound and outbound travel to Singapore,” said Al Baker.
