Qatar Airways announces capacity increase to services on Doha and Warsaw route

Jan 16, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Qatar Airways, a carrier airline, has announced a capacity increase to daily scheduled services on the Doha and Warsaw route, effective February 1, 2013.

The current four-times-a-week service is scheduled to move to a daily operation less than two months after the launch of flights to Poland's capital city.

"I have been pleasantly surprised how well the route has performed since adding the latest European gateway to our ever-expanding global network last month," Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker, said.

"When we enter new markets, we do so carefully with limited capacity and then develop routes with more capacity once we see evidence that additional flights are warranted. Today's development is welcome news for the people of Poland with more choice of flights and a great international network to choose from, specifically to Asia, Australia and the Middle East." Similarly, Al Baker explained that passengers from around the world will have more connectivity into Poland each day of the week.

"Serving popular routes with multi-frequency flights is one of our key strategies. We were confident that the Doha and Warsaw service would become a highly popular route, but didn't expect this to happen so soon," added Al Baker.

All flights on the Doha and Warsaw route are operated with a modern Airbus A320, featuring 144 seats in a two-class configuration of 12 in Business Class and 132 in Economy. The aircraft offers seatback TV screens providing passengers with the next generation interactive onboard entertainment system and a choice of more than 800 audio and video on demand options, together with an SMS text messaging service from each seat.
