Flights to Mumbai and other exotic locations served by Qatar Airways could soon be made on brand-new planes.
People taking flights to Mumbai and other exotic locations with Qatar Airways could soon be doing so on new planes as the carrier has taken delivery of four new aircraft.
Two Boeing 777-200 Long Range aircraft and two Airbus A320s joined the airline’s rapidly-growing fleet, taking it up to 76 aircraft.
Chief executive of the group Akbar Al Baker said that the acquisitions represent the airline’s determination to improve its fleet size while providing the latest inflight features.
“Today’s consumer is becoming more demanding and, we at Qatar Airways, recognise the need to remain at the forefront of the aviation industry by flying modern aircraft and offer the best levels of comfort and inflight amenities,” he added.
Mr Al Baker went on to say that the firm has a clear long-term strategy to develop its operations globally, despite the difficult economic climate.
Last month, Qatar Airways announced that Copenhagen and Barcelona will join its route network when its summer schedule begins at the end of March 2010.
