Group Chief Executive of Qatar Airways, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to add Nagpur as Qatar Airways’ 13th destination in India. The additional service is evidence of the growing demand in the Indian market and further strengthens our commitment and focus in the region. Qatar Airways is proud of the fact that we serve more destinations in India than any other country in our network. Leisure and business travellers from Nagpur can now experience enhanced connectivity to more than 150 international destinations through seamless connections via Doha’s Hamad International Airport. We look forward to welcoming new passengers on-board our award-winning product, and to connect Nagpur to the rest of our rapidly expanding network.”
Qatar Airways serves 13 key cities in India and connects these cities to a wide range of international destinations via its hub in Doha including Dallas, Houston, London, Miami, New York, Paris, Philadelphia, Barcelona, and Rome.
Thus far in 2015, Qatar Airways has started flights to Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Zanzibar (Tanzania), Abha (Saudi Arabia), and Faisalabad, Sialkot and Multan in Pakistan. Also, the carrier plans to commence services to Durban (South Africa) before the end of this year.
