Qatar Airways chose the Opening Day of ITB Berlin

first_imgQatar Airways chose the Opening Day of ITB Berlin 2018 to announce ‘aggressive expansion plans’ for 2018/19 that include 16 new destinations.Somewhat controversially, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, also hit back at his neighbours for the illegal blockade on Qatar.“During the blockade Qatar Airways continued its expansion; it continued its march ahead. We kept our country supplied and we became prouder as a nation. The blockade made my ruler an icon of defiance. Today, we are more independent than we were nine months ago. We are very defiant, and Qatar Airways will keep on expanding and keep on raising the flag for my country all over the globe.”Mr Al Baker also tipped a raft of forthcoming global destinations for the airline in line with its expedited expansion plans, including the announcement that Qatar Airways will be the first Gulf carrier to begin direct service to Luxembourg. Other new destinations to be launched by the airline include London Gatwick, United Kingdom; Cardiff, United Kingdom; Lisbon, Portugal; Tallinn, Estonia; Valletta, Malta; Cebu and Davao, Philippines; Langkawi, Malaysia; Da Nang, Vietnam; Bodrum, Antalya and Hatay, Turkey; Mykonos and Thessaloniki, Greece; and Málaga, Spain.In addition, services to Warsaw, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Prague and Kyiv will increase to a double daily frequency, while services to Madrid, Barcelona and the Maldives will increase to triple daily. airlinesQatar Airwayslast_img
